During the sighting lap for moto 1 at the 2019 MXGP of Latvia at Kegums, Jeffrey Herlings crashed and was clipped by Arminas Jasikonis. The #84 was in pain but he fought through the pain in moto 1 to get his first moto win of 2019. Unfortunately, after Jeffrey’s moto 1 win he was forced to pull out of moto 2 when they found out that he suffered a broken ankle in the incident.

“Very sorry to say I have broken my ankle,” Jeffrey said after going to a local hospital. “Had a small crash in sighting lap and another rider rode over my bad foot and broke my ankle. I decided after sighting lap to still line up for the moto and even won the moto with a broken ankle. I just can not believe it anymore…….. Of course I will be out for 2nd moto. Feeling so sorry for my team and sponsors.”
