2021 DUTCH GRAND PRIX RECAP: TIM GAJSER WINS, JEFFREY HERLINGS HURT, LOTS OF CRASHES

If the riders at the fourth round of the 20-race 2021 World Motocross Championship were expecting traditional Dutch sand that the new-to-MXGP Oss circuit, they were in for a surprise. Although definitely a track filled with sand whoops, it was also very slippery with soft spots that grabbed riders wheels. Riders were sliding out and crashing in both classes—some crashing two or three times. In the end, Jago Geerts went 1-1 in the 250 class, while 450 points leader Tim Gasjer didn’t win either moto, but was help when Jeffrey Herlings, who had won the first 450 moto with an injured shoulder, could not make the start ofr the second moto, which was then won by KTM’s Tony Cairoli. Gajser’s consistency earned him the top step on the podium and his points lead over Herlings grew to 23 points —and it just so happens that Herlings, Cairoli and Febvre are all tied for second place with 143 points. The next race is on Sunday, July 25 in Locket, Czech Republic.
