Actuallly the way i understood is is that Herlings realized after some experience in gp's that he really likes to be 'at home' with family & friends a lot. Where other riders might say after a gp somewhere abroad let's stay a couple of days and go ... more »

In the Netherlands using a camera mounted on your helmet is not allowed for any mx track activity (so also local races & training days). You are uninsured in case of a crash involving a camera on your helmet. It's not aimed at not using a camera, ... more »

I think it will be quite a while. Closer to a decade then in 5 years. First there need to be a product available to sell. None of the main manufacturers have that. When they have that product i still don't see the manufacturers pushing this product before ... more »

I race local & regional. Which means over here (Netherlands) racing a clubrace (local) and racing in a competition between 8 clubs/circuits within a 1 hour radius. Haven't raced much recently due to Corona, but the last 2 races this was how it was ... more »

I'm sorry but this is a terrible look for him... How happy could KTM or Red Bull be about that interview? I'm not disagreeing with how this looks for him, but to be honest i don't think KTM really cares. This interview is just a blip on the radar anyways. ... more »

He said it wasnt in salary but it is paid to his company ("bv"). He mentioned that he is investing in real estate. Lots of ways he can get to a much lower tax rate by doing this.

The guy doing the interview (Andy) is a former soccer player who spend all his money on crazy stuff. (As in buying elephants or tigers fir in his home). He does this type of interview with soccer players, influencers and other celebrities and its always ... more »

First time in like forever that a toprider gives an exact number he made in a year (going into detail about investing a bit later as well) and your response us "i have no knowledge but i think he ismaking a couple of million more" 🙄

van Horebeek is not signed and earlier in this topic the gossip was a Belgian rider with Beta, so.. maybe it should have said Fantic?

Question about those fun movers: What is the smallest size fun mover that is available? Are there any 25, 26, 27 ft funmovers (so including a garage for mx)?

The 250cc 2-stroke was the 'kings class' in 1990. Nowadays we have a kids class for 13-14 year olds racing a bike that has probably the same power, is 20kg lighter and has way better suspension compared to that '90 250cc. And we have these kids race ... more »

I think he broke the kawa at the part of the track shown at the 3:48 mark. Nowadays the run the track counterclockwise. If you look at 2:19 it's hard to believe how much the mx technology has improved. 85cc kids jump that jump nowadays and the GP stars ... more »

Markelo is still used today. They had a dutch masters of MX 2 or 3 years ago and will hold a Sidecar GP in 2021. It has always been just a racecircuit and not a training circuit, only open once or twice a year. I would have raced a local class this year ... more »

The story i have heard before is that TM has a certain production number they sell out to their distributors anyway and don't have any plans on expanding that number with the risks associated with higher production runs. That would explain the lack of ... more »

Yeah i'm surprised by this as well. Not even a midpack guy.

That seems very logical. However what i've heard about the Dutch masters is that this does not apply because the main sponsors are paying way more then what they get in value in return. Adding a stream with 10k views is nice but still offers way to little ... more »

For the Netherlands 6.000 tot 10.000 would be way to optimistic number. The Dutch Masters with a bunch of GP stars including Herlings & Coldenhoff often have less then 6k visitors with prices at 20-25 euro. As for the costs of organizing i'm not ... more »
