Today, at the MXGP of Czech Republic at Loket, Red Bull KTM's Jordi Tixier pulled to within 102 points of the injured Jeffrey Herlings. Tixier (25-18) won his first overall of the season earlier today, outlasting Valentin Guillod (20-20) and Christophe Charlier (14-25). Herlings remains sidelined due to a broken femur suffered earlier this week at Stefan Everts' Charity Race -- Everts and Friends -- while riding an 85cc. Tixier needs 103 points (Herlings owns tie-breaker) over the final three (Belgium, Brazil and Mexico) FIM World Motocross Championship rounds to capture his first career MX2 World Championship. A possible 150 points remain.

Herlings congratulated his teammate today via Twitter:

Congratulations my man @jorditixier , Well disurved!!

In MXGP, Yamaha's Jeremy Van Horebeek claimed his first career MXGP overall. Kevin Strijbos took home second, with MXGP points leader Antonio Cairoli rounding out the podium.
