Red Bull KTM Factory rider Jeffrey Herlings has decided not to come back for the final few GPs in a decision that makes sense. Below is what he mention on his social media account.
Jeffrey Herlings: “I have decided to sit out the rest of the 2020 season. All year I been struggling with a recent injury on my foot and I believe it’s the best solution to get this fixed before I jump back on the orange machine, so will have surgery on that next week to hopefully be able to finally being able to ride a dirtbike again in 2 years without pain. The recent crash happened because my foot came off as I had to put my foot differently on the footpeg as I always had pain and that’s why I went over the handlebars and crashed on my neck. On a other note the neck and back injury is fully healed. The last 2 years have been difficult, due to the foot I wasn’t able to perform at my best. I believe this can be fixed and that we will have bright years in front of us. For now I would like to thank all my sponsors and partners for believing in me and we will strike back in the future.”
