After months of speculation and wishful thinking by fans all over the world, Jeffrey Herlings has apparently decided that he will come and compete in one or two rounds of the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship in August. Alec Hodgkinson reported on his site www.mx-pure.com this snipped:
"Jeffrey Herlings will race at least one US National in August. KTM racing boss Pit Beirer confirmed the news over the weekend at Teutschenthal: 'It is Jeffrey's dream to race there sometime and we promised him that we would make everything available for him to do so. He initially wanted to race Millville, but we didn't want him flying hectically backwards and forwards between two GPs (Ed: Millville is on July 19, the free weekend between Hyvinkää (Finland) and Loket (Czech Republic) but the cancellation of the Ukraininan GP gives him almost all of August free) ... and Jeffrey would be out riding flat-out every day anyway on the practice track. It is not a condition that he has already clinched the world title at Lommel on August 3." There are three US Nationals in August - Unadilla on the 9th, Crawfordsville/Indiana on the 16th and Tooele/Utah on the 23rd.'"
