Red Bull KTM‰Ûªs Jeffrey Herlings made a triumphant return to competition this weekend after a long injury break with winning rides at the Hawkstone International MX meeting in the UK.
Herlings, the dominant MX2 rider in the 2013 World Championship signaled to the opposition that he was back in form and ready to race by taking victory in both MX2 races and the Superfinal.
Speaking after the race, the Dutch rider said it was great to be back and riding on a sandy track, similar to those at home in the Netherlands.
‰ÛÏI have been off for six months so I am very happy to be back." Herlings enthused. "The track was pretty gnarly but it was really fun and I had a great time.
"I liked the track because it‰Ûªs a lot like riding at home in Holland and this win gives me confidence for the first GP next weekend. I am really looking forward to going to race in Qatar.‰Û
