Get ready for bar-to-bar action to occur at this weekend’s MXGP in Jacksonville, Florida

JACKSONVILLE, Flor. (INTELLIHUB) — 2017 Lucas Oil AMA Pro Motorcross champion Monster Energy Kawasaki rider Eli Tomac and Netherlands-based Factory KTM rider Jeffrey Herlings are anticipated to go bar-to-bar in an epic all-out battle for the win at the Double WW Ranch MXGP this Labor Day weekend.

Tomac is sure to be on point for this weekend’s rematch against Herlings and other riders and is looking for redemption after suffering an embarrassing Moto 1 crash at last Saturday’s Ironman race while trying to pass Herlings on the outside.

Tomac told reporters in a post-race interview that his “ego” got the best of him when he tried to make the pass on Herlings and blew the berm. Moreover, Tomac admitted that he should have been focused on the “big picture” — “the championship.”

Herlings was clearly the fastest man on the track at Ironman going 1-1 for a first place overall but will he have the speed he needs to defeat Tomac in the sand on September 2-3.
