Nice and rough... If a US based SX only rider went to race there, they would likely end up in an ambulance.

only because of all the squids out there with him.

Seriously though, he does not look nearly as fluid as TC does (even if they were both at "testing" pace)

I'm not sure where he was testing today, looked like maybe Honda Park? But the guys from living for the weekend were there and they said that he was 4 seconds off the pace of Bobryshev

This track is 100% Lommel. Maybe they went to Olmen too, don't know that.

Is this from today though? I know this Vid is Lommel. Living for the weekend posted a vid today of a different track with the caption 'he is looking for 4 seconds to be even with Bobryshev today' I couldn't tell what track it was

This video is from Lommel as OP said. The Facebook video from the living for the weekend guys is from Honda Park.

Just looked it up, was indeed Honda Park at Olmen. Maybe Lommel was earlier this week, because there was no sunshine today overhere.

I thought so. I'm not massively familiar with the practice tracks over there, but I thought it was Honda Park. 4 seconds is a big gap if true.

Also, didn't think Lommel looked that bad compared to a GP weekend. He's got plenty of time to work on the sand though

Lol, I wonder where that interview can be found. I'd like to read it again.

No, he's no Hearlings in the sand, but he has plenty of time to prepare for the sand.

And herlings is no RV in the dirt, or on a SX track.

Do we need to post the video of Herlings first time on a SX track and compare?

When Herlings or Cairoli man up and come over to race in the US we can compare too... Maybe they'll win a AMA national or SX race on their second attempt too like RV with the GPs smile.

Could you imagine a straight up battle between the two? It would be amazing.

Well I can't see cairoli doing this but i honestly think herlings might... And if he does i think he has a serious chance at winning his first race never mind second.

Holy sh*t, I was just outside and a plane flew overhead... one of the ones with a banner behind, it Read: "RV 4 seconds slower at Lommel than Gorbachev"! My jaw dropped, wtf... came here to get the scoop.

Yes and he was 3 seconds off of Uri Testikov, but it's ok , he was within 1.5 seconds of Ivan Van Poppel so he's getting better.

How anyone can take away anything from watching someone practice is beyond me. Until they're all racing side by side its all mumbo jumbo. With that being said, his bike comes across as being stiff still.. Lol

^ Agree. He really didn't look committed in the corners at all. So times mean nothing. Chances are he was testing engine settings or something like that.
