Another fantastic #mxgp weekend for Red Bull KTM with a 100% win record intact for both MXGP and MX2 classes thanks to Jeffrey Herlings & @jorgeprado61 today in #portugal. Five rounds down! #readytorace
MX2 kan ook nog een strijd gaan worden nadat Jonass 14 van de 28 punten voorsprong op Prado verloor.
Herlings: "Obviously I wasn't capable of getting the same RPM what was actually needed to pull a good start. When I was alone I could do it but with 29 bikes next to me for example I couldn't hear my own bike. And then I was either to high or to low with the RPMs so now the team did a great job just put on some lights so I can see the right RPM zone and since then it got better."
Are you now more confident sitting at the gate knowing you can holeshot whenever?
"Yeah basically I just have to drop the clutch you know? I've got the right RPMs and just lean to the front and drop the clutch. They got it made pretty easy for me for now but it is not that easy you know? But to get some got starts is one thing but you have to keep doing it over and over, that's not going to be easy. The rest will also improve."
