Herlings Has Thoughts About MXGP

Remember when some tops riders refused to race qualifying at the MXGP of France due to conditions? Well, they HATE the qualifying race, whether the track is in good condition or not. Jeffrey Herlings was on the Gypsy Tales podcast this weekend and weighed in on the qualifying races (Spoiler: He hates them too) and more. This is worth a listen….

What Video Games Are Riders Playing?

The folks at Pro Motocross pulled out the tiny mic and found the answer.

Quote of the Week

From Michael Moisman via Racer X:

“Totally. I’ve wondered some crazy stuff. I remember distinctly one year; I was at junior world championships. I was thirteen years old. There was this one section in the back. It was an Italian track. It was spread out so far. It was quiet back there. I remember I was replaying in my head the movie Taken because I had just watched it the weekend before. I was doing that for like three laps. I realized it in that back corner. I was like, “I should probably focus on this race that I’m in.”
