Jeffrey Herlings to race in Canada Heights – ACU British Round 2


With the MXGP World Championship taking a week off after three consecutive Grand Prix, Jeffrey Herlings has decided to race again in the ACU British Championship this Sunday, May 26th for Round 2 in Canada Heights.

Excitement is building for the second round of the 2024 Dirt Store ACU British Motocross Championship as five-time FIM Motocross World Champion Jeffrey Herlings, known as “The Bullet,” confirms his attendance at Canada Heights on the 26th May 2024. This appearance marks his second outing in the ACU British Championship this season after winning the opening round in Lyng.

Herlings was on the podium in the last two MXGP rounds with a 3rd in Galicia and a 2nd last weekend in France. However, he has a lot of work ahead as he sits 4th in the MXGP Standings with a 61-point deficit behind the new leader Tim Gajser. It´s been a tough season for the Dutchland due to a rib injury in Riola Sardo.

“The bike worked well, and ran clean all moto in those conditions, so the team did great. I’m looking forward to Teutschenthal now after a practice race in the UK next week. Difficult this weekend, and we need to think about the health of the riders and think professionally. That’s my opinion.” said Herlings after the MXGP of France.

As for the ACU British Championship, Herlings and Mewse are tied for the lead with 47 points each after sharing race wins at the opening round in Lyng. Josh Gilbert sits 3rd. Meanwhile, in the MX2 class, Cas Valk leads the standings by 3 points, but his maiden rival Jack Chambers will be out, as same as teammate Bobby Bruce. So Tommy Searle, Jack Nicholls, or Charlie Heymann will challenge Valk´s speed.
