Jeffrey Herlings (KTM) won the MXGP Grand Prix of Trento on Sunday, the fourteenth of eighteen World Championship rounds. The 27-year-old Dutchman won both series in the Italian Pietramurata and strengthens his leading position in the World Cup standings.

Herlings beat his compatriot Glenn Coldenhoff (Yamaha) and Slovenian Tim Gajser (Honda). Frenchman Romain Febvre (Kawasaki) finished fourth and lost ground to Herlings in the battle for the world title.

Thanks to his sixth victory in the last seven Grand Prix, Herlings now has 555 points in the World Cup standings. Febvre is the first pursuer with 531 points, outgoing world champion Gajser is third with 528 points.

It is Herlings’ 97th GP victory in his career. He thus comes to four victories from the record of Stefan Everts (101).

Italian Antonio Cairoli (KTM) had a difficult weekend. He had to retire in the first heat and only finished 28th in the second heat. In the final result he was only 28th.

On the Belgian side, Jeremy Van Horebeek (Beta), Kevin Strijbos (Yamaha) and Brent Van Doninck (Yamaha) competed in the background. They finished the GP in 18th, 22nd and 30th respectively.

The motocross riders will remain in Pietramurata for the next few days. The Italian circuit will host the Pietramurata GP on Wednesday and the Garda GP on Sunday. The World Cup also ends in Italy at the beginning of November with the two Grand Prix in Mantua, the GP of Lombardy (November 7) and the GP of Mantua (November 10).
