Great to see Jeffrey Herlings back on a bike and back to winning races. Jeffrey won the season opener in Italy this past weekend with a convincing victory in Sardinia.
Herlings said it had definitely been a good weekend. “It was disappointing over the past two years because of the injuries so now we are just trying to get back what belongs to us and that’s the championship. We’ve had some good preparation and I’m looking forward to Qatar (the opening round of the 2016 world championship) and some more preparation. The bike is doing good, we’ve had two good weeks of testing with the team and everything is looking really positive.”
Speaking about his race day Herlings said the track at Alghero suited him well, even though it wasn’t the deep sand that is his usual natural habitat. “I enjoyed the track a lot but it wasn’t so easy with the 250 because there was only one line and it was difficult to pass. But the practice was good,” he added. Herlings races next week at the Hawkstone Park International, another one of his favorite venues and where he has many British fans.
