    It’s one thing to have a teen phenom absolutely dominate his rivals in his sport. But to have one with such a sense of humility as he charges into the annals of Motocross history…is all the more impressive. “It is an amazing feeling, but maybe only when I’m older I’ll realize what I have accomplished,” said Jeffrey Herlings – shortly after wrapping up his 14th World Motocross Grand Prix victory on the season and his second consecutive MX2 World Title. At a mere 18 years old, Oakley’s Dutch rider has tallied an astonishing 30th career GP victory on top of his taking the MX2 crown with three races to go. Not to mention his perfect record through all rounds thus far.

    To say that the Red Bull KTM Team recognized Jeffrey Herlings’ potential from the time he barely hit puberty, wouldn’t be much of an exaggeration. He’s been on the program since the moment he was old enough to qualify for the Motocross World Championship. So it was only fitting that just as the Dutch teen motocross phenom claimed his 10th Motocross Grand Prix victory (out of 10) in Sweden, KTM announced a two-year extension of his contract with the team.

    Jeffrey Herlings’ perfect season may have ‘ended.’ But there’s still nothing on the planet of 250 dirt bikes that is even close to stopping him. The young Dutchman phenom’s epic 13 straight Moto victories came to a halt with a crash in the Super Final at the Grand Prix of Brazil last week – but his characteristically dominating performance in Moto 1 still guaranteed an overall victory at the stop. Which means, of course, that Oakley’s speed demon still holds a massive 100 point lead in the 250 class standings. The resilient display in South America came on the heels of a purely dominating weekend in Portugal the week prior – smoking the Free Practice, qualifiers, Moto 1 (with the Holeshot and lapping the 10th position rider) and Moto 2 (Holeshot, fastest lap time, 1:08:304 faster than the second place rider, lapped the entire field until the eighth position rider) en route to six straight triumphs.
