Midweek MOTO catch up ft Herlings, Brazil, Bradshaw, KTM, Paulin and more

Your perfect lunchtime read...

So what the heck is happening? Is Jeffrey Herlings going to race in Brazil this weekend or is he going to wait until the final round in Mexico?

JH84 is listed on the entry list but no confirmation as yet if he is going to make the trip or not.

But we are hearing rumblings that Jeffrey has picked up some sort of complication with his injured leg and may need a further operation to clear it up, if this is true then his season is over….more to come.

Check out an aerial view of this weekends track in Brazil.

News popped into our inbox this morning that Nev Bradshaw has signed to race for Husqvarna in 2015, with his current team DB Racing shutting up shop, Nev will go it alone with his own team ‘272 Race School’.

Neville Bradshaw“I am really excited to begin this new chapter in my career and work closely with the guys at Husqvarna Motorcycles UK. They are a great bunch, with awesome product and a strong motivation to win. I’m grateful that they are supporting me on both the racing and training school journey I will be taking on in 2015. Together I believe we have a great package and share the same work ethic! I’m looking forward to delivering Husqvarna some strong results as well as helping to bring on the youth of UK Motocross. See you all in 2015.”

Interesting news on the KTM business side, in the first half of financial year 2014, KTM AG achieved the highest sales and revenue in the company’s history for this period of time, with the brands KTM and Husqvarna. KTM sold 70,469 bikes worldwide. This means an increase of 27.8 % to prior year. Total revenue 410.3 million EUR – beers on them then.
