Jeffrey Herlings extends contract with KTM for another two years

Posted:

Pit Beirer, Head of KTM Motorsports has announced that KTM Racing has signed its MX2 factory rider Jeffrey Herlings for another two years.

Herlings is considered one of the brightest young talents in the sport and has been a successful part of the Red Bull KTM Factory Racing Team since he was old enough to qualify for the senior international racing competition.

The Dutch rider has delivered astonishing performances on the track since he joined the MX2 class but Herlings was already on the KTM radar screen from a very early age when Red Bull KTM Factory team boss Stefan Everts recognized his potential.

Herlings is widely considered as the world‰Ûªs best sand rider but in 2013 the current MX2 World Champion has proved to be virtually invincible on all terrain. He has won every Grand Prix so far this season, losing only a single moto to have an impressive current 17-1 scorecard.

‰ÛÏJeffrey is the youngest rider in his class." Beirer explained. "He is still only 18 and we‰Ûªve never experienced such a great talent in someone so young.

"Such a talent needs special nurturing and we‰Ûªre confident that in the hands of Stefan Everts and with the support of the entire KTM team, we can guide him carefully through these early years of his already remarkable career.

"This is also the reason that Stefan strongly recommends that Jeffrey should compete for another season in the MX2 class. He may still be very young but he has already shown everyone involved in our sport that his talent is indisputable.

"We are very pleased to have the opportunity to extend our agreement with him as he continues to develop and mature as a rider under the guidance of our factory team.‰Û
