Jeffrey Herlings of the Red Bull KTM Factory Team continued along his winning ways by clinching the international event at Lacapelle Marival in France. After winning the International at Hawkstone Park last weekend, Herlings won both MX1 heats as well as the Superfinal.
After a wet and muddy Hawkstone Park experience, Herlings was keen to test his mettle in dry conditions. He had won at this event in 2018, and was keen to repeat the feat this time round. He started off well by setting the pole time, and matters never dipped from there. With good starts consistently good lap times and good race management, he rode to comfortable victories in both the MX1 heats, and as an extra sweetener, he also claimed the honours in the Superfinal race.
This was Herlings’last race before the start of the MXGP world championship season, which will kick off at Matterley Basin in England on 1 March 2020.
