Jeffrey Herlings Tops Qualifying at MXGP of Latvia - MXGP


Red Bull KTM’s Jeffrey Herlings won the qualifying race toady at Round 7 of the FIM Motocross World Championship at the MXGP of Latvia.

Slowed by an pre-season wrist injury, Herlings’ MXGP career got off to a slow start, but he’s since rebounded, grabbing his first podium of the season last weekend and winning qualifying today by 2.5 seconds over Max Nagl. Jeremy Van Horebeek took third ahead of points leader Tim Gajser and Evgeny Bobryshev.

American Thomas Covington finished second in MX2 behind teammate Thomas Kjer Olsen. Fellow American Darian Sanayei finished seventh. Points leader Pauls Jonass took third.
