the funniest thing about this particular signature is that by the time you realise it doesn't say anything it's to late to stop reading it

Yupp im pretty sure this is bitter sweet for cairoli because he lost BUT from what it seems herlings imo will indoubtedly be king 12 years from now. and if he could fully commit to SX then i see nothing stopping herlings from being the next G.O.A.T.
He seems to have desire and the ability to learn from his mistakes which is what makes a G.O.A.T, So for Cairoli to lose to someone who will potentially be the best, seems like the most honorable step down from the throne.

Just phenomenal, the first Mxgp title of many I'm sure.

Dominant season. The rest of the MXGP field needs to figure something out. Or the GP record book could be smashed.

Isn't this the race he broke his leg at? Don't think that's a very fitting picture if it is. Congrats to 84. Now quit dinking around and come race on the states! Just kidding folks, relax.

Pretty happy for him. And still a huge performance by Cairoli; he scored as much as for a world title, he dominated every one ... but one, which indeed has a lot of potential to break any record book.

Agreed its just how do the best riders in the world find 2sec a lap in the off season? Remember Windam saying something similar about RC in the 2005 TGO vid. Something like where am I gonna find 2-3sec a lap?

yeah...all of the sudden he is going to commit to SX to become the GOAT. A wee bit late for that innit? Jeffery earned this title, congrats, can't wait to see him at the MXdN. There will be many more.

vomiting equals disqualification.

Oooh, and maybe Herlings will commit to the X Games too. And maybe Lewis Hamilton will run USAC Midgets. And maybe Marc Marquez will jump over the fountains at Caesar's Palace.

F1. MotoGP. MXGP. Screw the rest.

Well the GOAT did X games so it's only fitting.

Conrgrats Mr Herlings, well deserved

9/16/2018 1:51 PM

I see a lot of fighting for second place for the next 5 years. Only can see Gajser challenging him at all.

Watching him in the sand is simply amazing! With the MXoN there next year I'd say they will be a top contender if the team is healthy

Congrats to herlings. It’s been a pleasure watching him ride to the best of his ability this season. Well deserved champ! Roll on MXON. Tomac on form, herlings on form. What a time to be a fan of the sport!

Never in doubt, was it?

Jeff Emigs Keys to the Race:

Congratulations to Herlings! It would have never been a surprise to me for him to win it but to do it in that dominating of a fashion is extremely impressive. The guy missed two full motos worth of points and still wrapped it up with 3 motos to go. It's scary to think about how many GP's this guy will win by the end of his career, it's almost inevitable that he will pass Everts within the next two years and how many more seasons will he race after that? Probably at least 3 or 4 more I would think. Just a rough guess and obviously anything can happen but I'm thinking he will end his career with 150+ GP wins.

He's on track to match Everts record just next season alone.

Just like for cairoli someone Will soon pop up who is faster than herlings too. Cairoli is getting old, its unbelieveable that he can even run with herlings now. Imagine if prado stays and moves up, in 4 years he is 21 and herlings Will be close to 30. And dont forget that gajser had a huge injury before this season and have'nt been even close to 100% all season and it was the same after a couple of races last year and dont forget that he started last season with wins and looked to defend the title.

If tiga is fit next year and finds the drive to win he Will battle a lot with herlings, i have no doubt that a fit gajser who wants to win like in 2016 could run the same pace as herlings on every track except the deep sand ones. And im really hoping he starts next season healthy so we could see some more cool battles because this year was way to predictable and boring.
