In the Mantova Grand Prix, the 27-year-old Dutchman, frequently plagued by injuries in his career, overtook his competitor Romain Febvre on the decisive day by staying ahead of his competitor in both motos and taking the victory in the race.

The Frenchman went down in the last moto, allowing The Bullet to drive towards its second world title in relative peace. In Italy, but also in his hometown of Geldrop, there will be a big party because of Herlings’ overall victory.

Herlings, who also grabbed three world titles in other classes, came in points alongside Febvre earlier in the day and flashed past in the all-deciding moto. Defending champion Tim Gajser finished third in the final standings.
