The motocross world will…never…be…the…same.
Jeffrey Herlings is fast. Almost too fast. Oakley’s Dutch Young Gun, continuing his utter dominance of the MX2 class all year long, was finally crowned with the World Title by comfortably owning both motos at the GP of Europe at Faenza (Italy). The 17-year-old ripper, first taking the win in the qualifiers with ease, didn’t let up in any way all day long – charging through both Holeshots with reckless abandon to an emphatic overall victory. The result was his ninth GP triumph on the season…with just as much style as ever. “I had many ups and downs during the whole season, but I managed to find the way to get through everything and win the title,” Jeff said, rocking his Oakley Crowbar MX Goggles. "I am really happy to have had my team behind me because they have been really supportive all the time.”
Mental Speed: Motocross World GP Star Jeff Herlings Laps the Field at Lierop to Utterly Own the MX 2 Class
Jeffrey Herlings is merely 17 years old…and already making history. Oakley’s Dutch Motocross phenom lapped most of the field before a massive collection of crazed home fans at Lierop Grand Prix this past weekend. The youngster, charging into the event with a commanding MX 2 class championship standings lead over Tommy Searle, smoked KTM teammate Jeremy Van Horebeek in Moto 1 to claim victory at an insane 2:07 minutes ahead. In general, he flat out embarrassed riders all day long. And he fully intended to. “I came out today with a pole position and made two hole shots,” Jeff said, rocking his Oakley MX goggles and Dispatch 2 eyewear. “The first moto was unbelievable. I just cruised my way to the finish, and lapped up until second, only my teammate Jeremy stayed in the same lap so it was an awesome race. And in the second moto, I took the hole shot again and lapped up to fourth and I got the full 50 points. I’ve extended my points lead on Tommy so I really happy with that one.”
