7 championships in the MX1 class. GP GOAT? It sure is a strong possibility. 9 championships total including MX2.

Big Everts fan here but I wouldn't argue to much with someone that wanted to put TC222 at the top of the tree

I think he can still get another title.
Herlings will be good but he didn't really have any pressure this year after being 100+ points behind Gajser and Cairoli.
When it comes to battling all year for the title, Cairoli is the more experienced guy.

Doesn't mean that Herlings can't win it, he has a great chance. But many people seem to hand him the 2018 title already. Cairoli will be there 100%

Unless JH84 is hurt again like this year, AC won't beat him next year.

Herlings have been hurt in almost every season that he has done. AC has a very good chance of getting his 10th next year!

If you ignore the first 5 rounds (Herlings went 3-3-1-1-1-2 after them, so he was fit by valkenswaard), they scored almost an equal amount of points up to today. So it's not like Herlings beat Cairoli easily ever since he overcame his injury. And he had nothing to lose. Next year when he is in the title fight, he won't be able to risk as much.

We will see what happens. I wouldn't count out Gajser either

Nice story...the truth is that of the last 10 moto's this year Herlings has won 6 of them. Probably the one when his chain broke he would have won too. Let me count how many TC222 had won of the last 10 moto's....ehhh zero. And JH84 had won the most moto's this year. It makes him favorite for 2018

People handing Herlings the 2018 title this early sound like the Tomac fanboys predicting a 24-0 season. Anything can happen.

Herlings 543
Cairoli 527
And that is with a broken chain and big fat zero in Sweden.

I might even call Herlings the favorite for next year but not by much! KING TONY!

Yeah that's what people said in 2013 when desalle went on a winning streak in the last rounds while Tony already had a 100 point lead and just brought the title home.

Herlings didn't even manage to win most of the Mx2 seasons he was the HEAVY favorite in.

Even last year he had to sit 3 rounds in. Still won the title but that wouldn't have been enough for the mxgp class...

That's why I see him as A favorite but not THE favorite

Ten time Tony has a better ring to it. If anyone can pull it off the 222 can.

Unfortunately, it was'nt a good title fight. In 2015 Febvre was lucky that Nagl, Cairoli, Villopoto and Desalle got injured. In 2016 Tim Gasjer had luck Cairoli was injured. And this year Cairoli was lucky Herlings en Gajser were injured

So your saying Cairoli is really lucky, ok I get it .

Is Herlings lucky that Kenny went to America so he could win some titles, or unlucky with injuries not to have more?


Awesome achievement from tc222, the history books will show you as one of the greats, arguably the greatest.

Fiar, not the place, or the time.

Cool for Cairoli, looked like a good party on his Instastory. Giving Herlings a 9x medal made me laugh, old fox.

You forgot the part of the story where Tony executed his season plan already, had a massive points cushion to protect and Herlings had nothing to lose.

If, coulda, woulda, shoulda, If, If If......................................and on and on ad nausea.

Antonio Cairoli is the 2017 World MXGP Champion.

No one else, just Cairoli.

And no level of Fan Boism / Haterism and Ifs, can change that.

Roll on to next year. It should be a great season of racing.
