I know he has done this in the past, but after a full season on a 450 and clearly the best rider on his team why was he not in mxgp class?

Because they want Coldenhof to have extra rest in between moto's, so he is in MXGP.

depth in the mxgp class is deeper Herlings would win there anyways and Coldenhoff might.do better against the open class field?

Because they want Herling to win his class and if they put him in MXGP maybe he wont win the class. Coldenhoff wouldnt win the open class or MXGP so IMO they can get a for sure win in the open class.

Isn't the whole class thing kind of random and silly anyway? Covington might do better on a 250, they should let them pick what they want.

You can pick what you want.

Only 1 per 250, and Osborne got the nod. Surprisingly in this case 2 rider's on 250's might have been better for us.

Covington could ride a 250 of he wanted, it is an open class....

It doesn't matter if uou win your class. Your finishing position in a race is the score, not the position in your class.
The extra rest for Coldenhow could be the key.

I get what you're saying but if you're the 1st rider in your class to finish that means no one else in that class scored as well as you. Which is exactly what you want.

I doubt he's second guessing it, he got a pretty good start for having 37th gate. I doubt that'd be the case if he was on a 250 against 450s. Although with a better gate I can definitely see where you're coming from.

Honestly fellers, not sure how much slower Jeff would be if he was riding 125 Zundapp. He's just that good. I exaggerate but we all know he's gonna win his class barring a crash or mechanical.

I was thinking that he should ride the 350, a little easier transition.

Hes sandbagging againdevil

Also if he was racing in MXGP and got 3rd (hyperthetical because he could of won, just throwing out a if/but), or crashed while running a faster pace, then they would of been pushed to 3rd in qualifying. Gate pick is everything at a race like this so I guess that's the strategy they are going for.

Easy 1-1

Are you serious?

It's a team race and this is the best scenario for the team

|

9/30/2017 11:54 PM

Herlings should go 1-1, no matter where. So, wouldn't it make sense to put him in the hardest motos.

I am really confused by this..

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

It's a team event, not the Jeffery show.
In order to maximise potentially getting better results, the team thinks It's better to give Coldenhoff more time in between races. It's simple really.

Herlings did it specifically at Lommel to race back to back motos on an incredibly rough track with the least rest

KTM needs to build up a 320 or something of that size 2 stroke and get someone to race it in the open class to see what interest it gets
