Dutchman Jeffrey Herlings got the better of 1000 riders to secure Red Bull Knock Out victory on Saturday.
The three-time MX2 world champion brought a brilliant end to his championship year with a masterful ride in the dunes of The Hague to win the prestigious race.
The riders included big names from different disciplines such as motocross riders Glenn Coldenhoff and Steve Ramon, enduro racing star Nathan Watson together with a selection of specialist beach racers such as Axel van de Sande and Camille Chapelière.
However Herlings was unstoppable, winning both the qualifying race and then blasting through the field to victory on a testing 5km moto track laid out on the beach. It was a popular home victory for the fans as Herlings became the first Dutchman to win the Knock Out since Marc de Reuver in 2006. Herlings said, “I think this is the hardest beach race in the world. I know when I see my bed tonight, I’ll fall asleep immediately.”
