Herlings’ fourth MXGP win delays Cairoli title party in the USA

Comunicato Stampa disponibile solo in lingua originale. 

Herlings sprinted to a fourth Pole Position of the season on Saturday and under a grey and ominous sky with Cairoli following in second position and Glenn Coldenhoff rounding out the top six. All three riders couldn't replicate the bright starts in the first #moto on Sunday in sunnier and warmer conditions. Herlings needed six laps to catch Tim Gajser and move into second by which time Eli Tomac had a substantial lead that was impossible to breach. Cairoli had a quiet ride to third spot while Coldenhoff was in a closely bunched second group and rolled across the line in seventh. 

The second #moto saw Cairoli roar to the holeshot and set the pace from the beginning. He had Herlings for company and the pair were again a level apart from the pack as Tomac laboured in third and admitted afterwards he had no way to fight back. On lap ten Cairoli lost the front end in a rutty left turn and briefly crashed, handing the advantage to Herlings who needed no invitation on his works 450 SX-F. Cairoli went from a championship-winning berth to third place overall and has to wait another seven days before he confirms his ninth crown. With a 96 point gap between the #ktm athletes and 100 left in the last two Grands Prix, Tony could be opening the bubbly after the first #moto in Assen. The Dutch date will be a home meeting for Coldenhoff who pushed as hard as he could to claim tenth in the second race for eighth overall.
