Updates on Red Bull KTM Factory Racing riders, Jeffrey Herlings and Jorge Prado, after a shocking crash at the conclusion of MXGP moto one at the MXGP of Germany. Prado won the moto by less than a second, drifted over in the air on the finish jump and collected Herlings. A video of the incident is below.
Jeffrey Herlings: Jeffrey Herlings is fine, for the most part, and ready to race the second MXGP moto. There is no cause for concern with #84, although he is obviously battered and bruised.
Jorge Prado: Jorge Prado is getting stitches under his arm in hospital and is not expected to race MXGP moto two. There are false reports of a broken leg circulating. Those are incorrect. Considering how bad of an impact it was, only requiring stitches is quite lucky.
