Dutch Masters

Herlings dominates Dutch opener

Herlings ‘masters’ the sand of Axel.

Published

on

The first round of the Dutch Masters series was held at the sandy circuit of Axel today and boasted an entry list that featured a handful of factory MXGP stars. Jeffrey Herlings headlined the MX2 class and, unsurprisingly, dominated, winning each moto by more than a minute.

Herlings’ performance in the second race was most impressive, as he lapped up to the top five and was one minute and forty-three seconds ahead of Aleksandr Tonkov in second. Tonkov, building off his strong results in Thailand one week ago, crossed the line in the runner-up spot each time, but could obviously do nothing about ’84’. Seewer went 6-3 in the motos, proving that he has indeed made significant gains with his ability in the sand, and Paturel went 5-6. The class was littered with inconsistency though; Anstie failed to finish the first moto (for unspecified reasons), but rebounded to finish fourth in moto two, and Petrov finished third in moto one before withdrawing after two laps in the second MX2 encounter.

Although he wasn’t quite as dominant as Herlings, Evgeny Bobryshev took both MX1 moto wins quite easily. Thirty-two seconds was his advantage over Ben Townley when the chequered flag flew in the first moto; he then won the second race by eleven seconds. Filip Bengtsson rounded out the top three in moto one, but then managed to better that by taking the runner-up spot in race two. Harri Kullas was third in the final moto, after finishing fourth in the first.

We’ll have more from Axel soon.

An all-Dutch contingent with the team owner and riders all being from the Netherlands, who will be looking to make their mark in 2024. The team and riders are currently testing bikes and further news on their progress and pre-season events will be announced soon.

After eight great years at Yamaha, I am really happy to start this new chapter with Fantic. The motivation, support and shared goals have made me very enthusiastic for the future.

I am very happy to continue my relationship with Glenn Coldenhoff who is an experienced and dedicated rider. Roan van de Moosdijk is one of the most exciting rookie prospects and  2024 is looking great for Fantic and myself.

A new brand, new colours and new people have ignited the excitement further. Let’s start racing!

We are sure that with the structure of Louis Vosters, we have chosen an excellent partner, who will be able to show the high potential and the efficiency of our products. Our rider line-up is the perfect combination of experience and promising talent, with Glenn Coldenhoff, who has always been between the main contenders during the last MXGP seasons, and Roan Van de Moosdijk, an extremely capable rookie in the top class. I want to take this opportunity to thank Louis for his collaboration and his incredible enthusiasm, which he is transmitting to the whole Fantic family.
