Herlings closes down the gap to Cairoli and wins second moto MXGP in France

Dutchman Jeffrey Herlings has won both motos of the Grand Prix of France. In the second moto he took a not so good start and had to come back from around fifth position. He worked his way back up to third place and started to close down the gap to second place rider Tim Gajser. When he had passed Gajser he set his sights on Antonio Cairoli. With lap times which were two to three seconds per lap faster he was behind Cairoli in only three laps en passed the Italian a lap later. Because Herlings kept the pace high he made a comfortable lead and won the race in front of Cairoli and Gajser.

Behind this trio Gautier Paulin and Romain Febvre were fighting over fourth place. Finally it was Febvre who won the battle and finished fourth in front of Paulin. Clement Desalle crashed in the opening lap and had to come back from far. He charged back to sixth but missed the podium with fourth overall.

After ten rounds Herlings is leading the championship with an advantage of 64 points over Antonio Cairoli. The next round of the series will be held in Ottobiano next weekend.
