Clement Desale and Jeffrey Herlings Master Assen’s Sand Circuit

Posted:



The raucous crowd created a spine-tingling atmosphere here at the historic Dutch TT Circuit, Assen, for round sixteen of the FIM Motocross World Championship, where Monster Energy Kawasaki Racing Team‰Ûªs Clement Desalle and Red Bull KTM Factory Racing‰Ûªs Jeffrey Herlings topped the box in their respective classes.

Things couldn‰Ûªt get any crazier than they did overnight at the MXGP of The Netherlands. From Mother Nature unleashing her fury with an epic thunderstorm which was so gnarly it‰Ûªs practically indescribable, to Jeffrey Herlings being beat fair and square in the sand, to Tim Gajser DNF‰Ûªing, to Jorge Prado finishing in the top three on his MX2 debut, the list goes on.

Assen was also the host of the FIM Veteran Motocross World Cup today where Sweden‰Ûªs Mats Nilsson successfully defended his crown with a double moto victory ahead of Holland‰Ûªs own Ton Van Grinsven, while another Swede in the form of Robert Forsell rounded out the top three.

Monster Energy Kawasaki‰Ûªs Clement Desalle didn‰Ûªt just want to get the monkey off of his back. He wanted to throw it at the wall, which he finally managed to do this weekend with his first grand prix win since the MXGP of Germany 2014.

‰ÛÏFinally I am back on top of the box,‰Û
