Jeffrey Herlings was able to make it a fairytale weekend by winning his first MXGP title at his home track in the Netherlands. Herlings won his 16th grand prix for the year and had the title in the bag after moto 1 (a moto he would win by nearly 40 seconds!), which brought about some well deserved celebrations. Herlings would go 1/1 for the day but he didn’t have it easy on moto 2 after a rare mistake left him sunbaking in the sand. It’s pretty amazing to think this guy broke his collarbone at the start of the season and kept racing – that’s the stuff of legend. Aussie Todd Waters had a tough day on the brutal track. Still acclimatising to his new Assomotor Honda, Waters went 24/24 and hot the deck a few times, but he wasn’t the only Aussie struggling in the deep sand. Hunter Lawrence got great starts but mistakes kept him to an 8th overall with Prado taking his 11th win of the 2018 season in the MX2 class.
