MXGP was just out on track for timed practice, good to see Gajser near the top. Hope he's healed up after his nasty crash in Kegums!

Weather is awesome..... track is drying out fast after the storm yesterday and they've done a lot of work on the track to get it rideable....

Herlings followed Gajser when they both put in their fast lap

Bobby went down hard there on the last lap of timed practice. Was sat there for a while, looked to be a shoulder injury.

Herlings was very impressive. He followed Gajser round on that last lap and ended up 0.5 faster despite Gajser making at least half a second in one small section by jumping over a load of ruts that everyone else was slowing for

Track looks relatively good now during the EMX 300 race. Just a bit of a sloppy section around the start / pit area. Some of the guys where struggling pretty badly there.

Martens was leading the EMX300 moto 1 but overjumped the "Tomac Chadapult" jump and went down really hard..

Hope he's OK - that was quite the slap down.

Husky boys Covington & Olsen are riding really good again today. Both passed Jonass!

Update: Covington crashes out of the lead, he has had really good speed this year but it appears he often throws it away with small crashes ..

Yep it is now reported that he broke his collarbone, ain't starting in MXGP quali race. Bummer..

Do you guys think Herlings is cruising or that he gets flustered in a pack of top guys?

|

5/20/2017 8:18 AM

wow... Looks like Gajser took a gnarly digger. He is standing up though..

They haven't shown him much, but I would guess he's not pushing it....

What happened to gajser????

|

5/20/2017 8:28 AM

Gajser has pulled out of this race, they don't have the footage of his crash but the way he was laying down and where he was at on the track i can only guess that it must have been brutal.. He looks pretty banged up in the pits.

This really sucks. He's a very tough dude though. All the best Tim !!!

Herlings looking good again today, he has made quite a few moves in the last few laps of this quali race cool

|

5/20/2017 8:36 AM

Nice comfortable win for TC there. Very smooth

Took Herlings a while to find some lines and get going, bitan when he did he was hauling. Could be a good flight tomorrow

Hope Gajser is okay for tomorrow

|

5/20/2017 8:38 AM

Nice passes by Herlings in last few laps. Only a quali race, but he looks like himself again.

Cairoli won the MXGP Qualifying race. His main rival Gajser had a big crash and pulled out of the race, it remains to be seen how he will be for tomorrow.

Did Herlings haul upto 2nd or did guys make mistakes etc? Last time I saw laptimes he was behind Febvre,9 seconds off the lead

He caught/passed his way through. He found some really nice lines towards the end
