herlings breaks

When he got back up after his hit and resumed the march it was soon seen that he was slow not because his KTM was damaged, but because he was. Jeffrey Herlings he knew from the moment he fell when he was leading the first round of the MXGP of Germany ahead of Jorge Prado that he had done something serious to his neck, which is why he did not start the next race, and this has been confirmed: he has a fractured C5 vertebra and will miss at least the next two appointments in Indonesia (06/25 and 07/02).

The KTM team reports that an initial scan at the Teutschenthal circuit itself revealed a potential fracture to the C5 vertebra and an MRI on Monday confirmed the injury. The positive thing for the Dutchman is that he saves the operating room, so recovery times are notably shortened. Of course, it will be practically hopelessly out of the race for the title. Prado has already left Germany with 67 points of rent and has, in principle, two classifications and four races ahead to increase the number until making it unrecoverable.

“It is difficult to find many words. I got the record of victories and now I suffer another setback ”, Regrettably Herlings, who cannot explain how he could have had that accident: “I had been using that line very well up to that moment. Afterwards my neck didn’t feel good. I tried to finish and take the points that I could, but I know my body very well and I could feel that something was wrong. We’ll miss at least two Grands Prix, but I’m glad I don’t need surgery. I hope to return as soon as I can.”
