Jeffrey Herlings and Tom Vialle endured wet and torrid conditions in England to win the MX1 and MX2 classes of the Hawkstone International.

A stormy climate battered the historic Hawkstone Park circuit in central England and caused the second moto to be shortened to twenty minutes and the third ‰Û÷Superfinal‰Ûª to be cancelled. In the swampy sand Jeffrey Herlings ended the day with a 3-1 scorecard. The Dutchman crashed at the start of the opening race ‰ÛÒ won by Shaun Simpson ‰ÛÒ but recovered all the way through the field to claim 3rd spot. He holeshotted and won the shorter second sprint to walk the top step of the podium in his first outing of 2020.

‰ÛÏI felt good today," Herlings said. "It was a shame to have that start crash in the first moto but I still came back from last to third and almost got Glenn [Coldenhoff]. Then I holeshot and led the whole way in the second. It was about survival and there was only really one line to use, so passing the lappers was tricky. Anyway, we got it done. It was useful practice because Matterley could be the same!‰Û
