Track honestly looks pretty good. A little rutted and some dangers for rain but everything good so far.

Herlings seems to be fastest man on track.

What happens to Anstie and Van hoorebeek ? Sorry folks I've only got live timing.

Anstie his chain broke, JVH & Coldenhoff went down together pretty hard but looked allright.

Those ruts in the uphill roller section are absolutely mental, especially when they seem to be firm.

Yes, and cool by Herlings taking the inside with more or less zero run-in on the ruts.

Herlings is really getting some good momentum now I would say fastest rider just needs a start and he's likely to win.

He's been the fastest rider for two months. Cairoli has been beating him because he always starts ahead of him

Do you think so consistently ?

Having said that Cairoli has always been tactical brilliant and a master of winning GP's and championship.

Febvre is back it seems, Gajser is taking it easy you can see it on track, what happened to Covington? He was in 4th then disappeared........

They all start at the same gate. There have been motos Herlings has gotten into second behind Cairoli with plenty of time to close the gap and hasn't been able to do it. At this point with a close to 100 point lead Cairoli can afford to just manage the championship. I am looking forward to next season though. I hope Cairoli , Gajser and Herlings all go in healthy.

how many times ? maybe 2 times ? he usually is around top 10 and Cairoli takes the holeshot 9 out of 10

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

As I said they all start on the same gate. Maybe he needs to translate some of that otherworldy speed you guys are always talking about to the start straight, or maybe Tony will be a nice guy and wait up for him wink . Next season will be interesting. I think Herlings will be the favorite, but a fit Gajser and of course Tony I'm sure will be right there with him.

If you count out the first 5 GP's, i think Herlings would be leading this championship over Cairoli tongue

Covington lost the frontwheel after 1 lap. Had to wait for everyone to pass before he could get his bike to not get hit by someone. I was there today and the track has an improved surface, but some other changes was not for the better imho. The wall jump after the plateau makes passing even harder. The steep jump in the 180 two corners after the wawes sucked as well. Herlings looked great. 461 looked better than in a long time. 222 looked uninspired. Seewer was fast but needs a better start as always. Quite a lot of rain was actually just the right amount for the track today

Today is why I'm concerned with Covington on Team MXDN. He's so inconsistent.

Probably not uninspired, he just does the bare minimum to get a good gate pick. Herlings even wants to dominate qualifying. Cairoli clearly more mature.
