Jeffrey Herlings will wheel his Red Bull KTM 450 SX-F into the Lommel sand for the sixth round of 2021 MXGP tomorrow. The Dutchman fractured his left shoulder blade less than two weeks ago at the Dutch round of the series but has made progress and took to the practice track on Saturday morning to evaluate his condition.
“I rode the bike today, and we’ll give it a go tomorrow,” he said. “It’s still a bit sore. I’m 50 points down in the championship at the moment so tomorrow will be about damage control. We’ll have four weeks to fully heal-up before going to Turkey. We’ll just do our best and focus on the second part of the races to keep going and get some points. Lommel is a track that suits me and I want to give it a shot at least; then I don’t have any regrets for the rest of the championship.”
