    I hope people are paying attention to the series right now. Holy shit!!! I wish I had stayed off of social today, but I'll definitely be watching when I get home.

    Herlings is the master of "not following" the lines of the rider ahead of him... He makes a conscious effort at EVERY corner of mixing alternative lines and CONSTANTLY showing his target a wheel... he is rarely dirty, but always there pushing and probing. He has something like - three - alternative lines at his disposal on just about every corner of the racetrack.

    This is a video folks, that you can show young up and coming mx racers as a masterclass on moto racecraft and why you have to rehearse/cut in alternate line during practice. It's not about just trying to set a fastest qualifying time (for gate pick) by replicating lap after lap in order to shave a few tenths of your best lap time.

    Exceptional race clip that one - all four of the front runners - text book stuff.

    What a season, equal points till the last heat.
    Just like in 1994, with Marcus Hansson and Jacky Martens. That was a race.
