Just as we expected and reported on a handful of occasions. World MXGP champion, Jeffrey Herlings, has informed the organization of the Dutch Masters of Motocross in Rhenen that he is making his comeback on Thursday. This is reported by the organizing association Motor-Autoclub Rhenen and is on their website.
The Rhenen race will be held this coming Thursday as it is a public holiday in Holland. He will then race a round of the German ADAC championship a few days later.
Rhenen is the perfect entry for the fastest man on the planet, as it is a beautiful sand circuit and the field won’t be as tough as in MXGP.
Sensational news about Möggers ADAC MX Masters race meet (June 1st/2nd)! Motocross world champion Jeffrey Herlings (Red Bull KTM Factory Racing) will compete in the Austrian round of the motocross series. This guest outing in the ADAC MX Masters will be the reigning world champion’s first for some time on an MX bike. Injury has forced the 24-year-old Dutchman to miss the first half of the world championship season and Möggers will be the first time this year that he has been able to challenge the competition.
Apart from Herlings and Nagl, another motocross star is planning to be in the Möggers line-up. Jeremy Seewer from Switzerland has his sights set firmly on contesting the second race weekend of the ADAC MX Masters and will decide whether to compete in Austria after the world championship race in France this weekend.
Wednesday, Herlings stated in a press release from the KTM factory team that he will not return to competition until he feels 100 percent again. “And then I won’t be able to immediately participate in the win,” he added. “I will need a few races to get back to the required level.”
So let’s hope the KTM rider is 100% and can then return to the GP scene for the Russian Grand Prix in a two weeks time and then, of course, the sand of Latvia, where he has a great chance of taking his 85th GP win.
