“The Bullet” Jeffrey Herlings is back on the bike and riding in preparation to return to the MXGP series. After suffering a foot injury before the start of the season, Herlings is still yet to confirm a date to return to racing and will certainly miss the trip to France this week.
Jeffrey Herlings: “It feels great to be back on the bike again but I have to take things slowly and listen to what my body is saying. Sometimes I still have some pain in my foot and I need to train and get good time on the bike after three months of almost doing nothing. Basically I need to ride myself into shape. I want to come back to the track when I am 100% but I know I won’t be able to return and win; it will take a few races to get back up to a good level and the rest of the guys are already pushing hard and have the rhythm of regular racing. I’m working hard and will be back as soon as possible.”
