Herlings down! We have a race all of a sudden

Herlings a lap down. Tomorrow just got a lot more interesting.

|

3/17/2018 9:24 AM

Even before the crash, JvH set the fastest lap of the race (as it stands). That was impressive!

He has been impressive so far this season.

Speaking of impressive, Seewer is again up front in 5th. The level in MX2 isn’t as crappy as everyone said after Herlings left the class.

JVH still has the fastest lap and is just managing the lead at this point. Should be good tomorrow.

Gajser is one tough guy. Incredible. The guy couldn't even eat properly a week or so ago

Horebeeks best lap topped Jeff's best, what do we think about that?

|

My god the track is brutal. It has dried up and the ruts are crazy.

Wow. Weckman is the fastest rider on the track with a 2.14.

Everyone else is doing 2.16 or slower.

Hofer just dropped a faster lap.

Hofer is matching Weckman. Too bad that Weckman was 10th in the start.

Good god it has been cold here today. But worth putting up with the weather. Everything set up perfectly for tomorrow. Herlings clearly the fastest guy but he has a lot of work to do from 19th gate pick. It's gonna be awesome

|

3/17/2018 10:06 AM

Weckman into 2nd.

Impossible to catch Hofer unless he makes a mistake.

Yes he had the fastest lap but in traffic, JH was running faster laps than everyone the last few laps is what Paul Malin said,

Van's best lap was on 3rd lap herlings on 11th . van was a bunch slower on lap 11.

If I'm looking at that correctly

2.13 for Weckman.

Herlings is probably fastest guy but needed to push for the last half of the race, JvH and the top 5 didn't!

Probably not too much. JvH set his on lap three, Herlings his on lap 11, in traffic, and practically with the same time as JvH. But, the ball is round (as we say over here) ?

I think, well I want to hope, JVH did that lap chasing no? In some early lap traffic? If JH was pushing him, could best it. Sorry boys, I want a race.

JvH was riding a very solid race at a very good pace before Herlings fell off. I wouldn't say that it ever looked likely that he could catch and pass him, but he was certainly keeping him honest and was probably faster on certain areas of the track. I think Herlings showed after he crashed that he can up his pace if he needs to though. He almost beat JVH's best lap on the very last lap of the race. So tomorrow will be interesting
