The MXGP world championship leader has been injured in the seventh round of the MXGP.
The Dutchman crashed during free practice when he landed awkwardly, taking most of the impact on his upper body. Herlings was taken to a nearby hospital for an MRI on his head and neck and to also examine some pain to his shoulder. The 25-year old was conscious and had full feeling across his body. The trip to a clinic in Bologna was seen as precautionary measure and the team are waiting more updates. Herlings still holds the red plate.
Watch for the crash at the 19 second mark.
