MXA’S WEEKEND NEW ROUND-UP: A WEEKEND OFF TO HEAL, REFOCUS & FIND A RIDE FOR NEXT YEAR

JEFFREY HERLINGS FINISHES SECOND AT LOMMEL AFTER SITTING OUT THE LAST THREE MXGP MOTOS WITH A BROKEN SHOULDER BLADE

Last week Jeffrey Herlings was down and out with a broken shoulder blade after been landed on over a jump on Oss, Holland. Jeffrey had to miss the second moto in Oss and both motos in Loket, Czech Republic. This week, to the surprise on everyone, he won the first moto at Lommel and finished fifth in the second moto to take the second step on the podium.

KTM’s Jeffrey Herlings  was landed on over a jump by Ivo Monticelli at Oss, Holland,  Monticello wasn’t to blame as Herlings holeshot device failed release and Monticelli’s front wheel hit Herlings on the top of his helmet and richocheted into his upper-left back. The result was a cracked shoulder blade for Jeffrey. To his credit, Herlings never fell and kept going,  running on adrenaline he went on to win the first moto in Oss—broken shoulder blade an all. But, once back in the pits he realized that he could not race the second moto and was forced to missed the Czech Republic Grand Prix at Loket.

In a surprise move, Herlings showed up at Lommel for the Grand Prix of Flanders and score a second place finish behind Romain Febvre.

“I think I lost a championship 5 or 6 times due to injuries. It’s pretty frustrating at times, but I think right now I am still in a good place,” said Jeffrey after Lommel..

Jeffrey said: “I broke my shoulder blade,  so it’s not really normal to ride a bike within 13-14 days after. I did not know if I was going to fade with my shoulder because the track was rough and demanding on your body, especially on your shoulders as well. At one point, I felt I could run at a faster pace and I managed to pass Romain and make a gap. Obviously, Romain went down and then it was just a walking part from there. Second race turned out good. At the start I was around 4th or 5th  and then  Glenn Coldenhoff and I came together, he took my rear wheel and we both went down. We were both last, so it was a shame. I fought my way back to 5th place within 15 minutes, but I did not want to make a big error and go down. One week ago I thought the championship was game over. Now,  I know I need to hunt the boys down, but 42 points is not too bad. There is still a lot of races to go, so there’s a lot of options”.

“I think I lost a championship 5 or 6 times due to injuries. It’s pretty frustrating at times, but I think right now I am still in a good place. I don’t want to give up the championship so quick, so I think we’re still in a good place once again. We just have to keep fighting.”

THIS WEEK IN MXA” WITH JOSH MOSIMAN: TOMAC, SEXTON, CRAIG, MUMFORD, MILLSAPS & JASON THOMAS

• TURKEY GETS A TWO GP’S IN 2021 & TWO DAYS LATER FINLAND IS CANCELED

The Afyonkarahisar starting line.

The Grand Prix of Finland, originally scheduled for August 22 at the KymiRing, has been dropped from the 2021 Grand Prix Motocross schedule. The promoters cite a sudden increase of Covid-19 restrictions enforced by the Finnish government on mass audience events and international travel. Infront Moto Racing, the series promoter, says, “The event will be replaced, on a future date to be announced soon.”

This has been a weird week for the MXGP series as they added a second Turkish Grand Prix to the 2021 schedule a couple days ago. It’s strange that Turkey would get a second Grand Prix, given that they have only ever held two GP races ever. The first 2021 Turkish Grand Prix will be held on Sunday, September 4 and the second Turkish Grand Prix will follow up on Wednesday, September 8.

Even with the addition of an extra Grand Prix in Turkey, the once 20-race 2021 MXGP series, has not been able to keep the 20 race number because of nations dropping out. Additionally, the three fly-away races are considered to be tentative and will most likely result in some of the remaining GPs being turned into double-headers (if the three fly-aways run into government restrictions ).

• THE 2021 AMA NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP ARE STILL ON VACATION, BUT WILL BE BACK ON THE 14TH


Justin Barcia flirted with third in 450 points after Millville, but Eli Tomac took it back at Washougal and now leads Barcia by 10 points. Barcia, a native New Yorker, wants to take third place back when he gets in front of the home crowd at Unadilla.

• MXA TEAM TESTED:ASTERISK CARBON CELL 1 KNEE BRACE

Started by a group of athletes, including several motocross riders, Asterisk has been in the knee-brace game a long time. In 2017, not long after former AMA Pro Mike Beier and his team took over Asterisk, the wrecking crew started noticing a huge improvement in the durability of the Cell knee braces. The latest Asterisk Carbon Cell 1 (CC1) knee brace is manufactured from military- and aerospace-grade carbon fiber pre-preg. The Carbon Cell 1 is made in the United States to ensure the ultimate in build quality. Before launching the CC1, which is the slimmest brace MXA has ever tested, Asterisk spent two years designing, developing and testing the new brace. The test riders did their due diligence to help make the CC1 more durable while identifying areas that needed improvement. Asterisk paid close attention to the details of every element of its new brace.

The Asterisk CC1 carbon fiber knee brace is far more durable than previous products. The MXA wrecking crew stress tested the CC1 brace over a five-month period with countless hours of in-the-saddle abuse dished out by our top-tier test riders. After 60 hours of heavy usage on the braces, we put some fresh extension stops in and moved strap number one (behind the calf) around in the strap clip because it was showing some wear.

The patella cup is a three-piece design made from nylon 6 material that leaves no open gaps for that pesky handlebar to ding the top of your knee. The knee cup shape offers free movement with excellent flex and extension in current motocross pants, plus we didn’t feel it against our knee caps.
People often underestimate the importance of finding the right knee brace size. Wearing the incorrect-size knee brace will prevent the brace from being effective or, worse yet, may even increase your risk of injury. The Asterisk knee brace comes in a variety of sizes—from small to extra large. On Asterisk’s website, there is a sizing chart. Don’t skip this step before throwing down your cold hard plastic.

The Asterisk CC1 features four Velcro-backed fastener straps. You also get knee sleeves and optional boot tethers. We didn’t use the boot tethers; however, they are proven to increase protection. These anti-rotation tethers are installed by drilling one small hole in the top of your boot. You then attach the tether to your boot and to the knee brace. This will help minimize rotational injuries to the leg by making the Asterisk brace and your leg move as one. With the four-strap system, you also have multiple ways to snug the straps for that custom feel. The neoprene pads are also adjustable to make the straps more comfortable. Asterisk’s website, under the “CC1 instructions,” details the proper strap tightening sequence for securing your brace. The Carbon Cell 1 is backed up by a one-year warranty from the date of purchase.

Asterisk braces have three different extension stops with 10, 20 and 30 degrees of motion to accommodate your personal preference. Asterisk also offers 2mm and 4mm condyle pads for correct knee width upon request. This year, Asterisk introduced Microcell kids’ braces for mini riders.

DIGITS? $799.95 (pair)www.asterisk.com or (951) 268-6790.

MXA RATING: Ever since Mike Beier has taken over Asterisk, the entire line has improved in quality and durability. With the addition of the exceptional CC1 brace to Asterisk’s five-knee-brace lineup, the brand has been propelled to a whole new level. This is a compact, functional and durable knee brace.

• GLEN HELEN NITRO RALLYCROSS TICKETS ON SALE NOW FOR NOV. 20-21 EVENT

Travis Pastrana’s Nitro Rallycross (NRC) is set to expand in a big way, announcing a full championship series comprising five races in 2021. In 2022, NRX will go even bigger with a 10-stop global championship with races in North America, Europe and the Middle East. The new championship will also feature a revolutionary electric vehicle supercar class, which will be introduced in 2022. Travis Pastrana said, “Since day one, I have truly believed that Nitro Rallycross has the potential to be the most exciting motorsports series on the planet. When we built the first NRX course in Utah we knew we had something special — from the drivers’ genuine smiles to the astonished fans as cars flew side-by-side over 100-foot jumps. Now, as we get ready for the next chapter of NRX, I’m more convinced than ever that this will bring top drivers from all disciplines to challenge themselves as their teams push the envelope in vehicle development. It’s going to be a hell of a ride and this is only the beginning.” You can purchase tickets now by Clicking Here.
