JH#84 does it again | The Valkenswaard MXGP of 2011

Our hometown boy Jeffrey Herlings had a butt patch stitched to his motocross pants which read "Like 2010".. Well that's exactly what happened last weekend. After being injured for a couple months JH started training again at the end of 2010. Two weeks ago was the first GP of 2011, in Bulgaria, where he finished 3rd.. This last weekend, he pretty much destroyed everyone in the MX2 class. Ken Roczen was the only rider who came close in the first heat, but due to a small crash he ended up in second place. In the second heat, the H-Bomb was so fast that even Roczen couldn't keep up with the pace. Let's hope Jeffrey can keep goin' on like this.. It's gonna be a tough season, but once again he showed that he's a serious contender for this year's world title. The win at the Valkenswaard GP of 2011 was his 3rd GP win in his career so far... All the Dutch fans got what they came for. What a weekend!!

This pic was taken approximately 5 minutes after these two guys finished.. JH on the left having a well deserved drink. Team mate and second place finisher Ken Roczen #94 on the right...
