11 months ago | Words: Matt Bernard | Photos: KTM Images

Red Bull KTM Factory Racing’s Jeffrey Herlings has made history at the sixth round of the 2023 FIM World Championship in Madrid, Spain. Herlings secured an impressive 1-1 moto win, setting a new all-time Grand Prix victory record of 102 wins. The Dutchman dominated the rough and challenging course aboard his KTM 450 SX-F, achieving his second triumph in a row and his third of the season. Not only did he claim his first 1-1 of the year, but he also earned the 102nd win of his career since joining Red Bull KTM in 2010.

Herlings’ record-breaking achievement puts him ahead of Stefan Everts, who previously held the record of 101 Grand Prix victories.

“I’m super-happy to improve my moto wins total and take the GP win record outright. The rest of the guys have really stepped it up this season – Jorge is riding awesome – and they are really pushing, so I did not expect this would come so soon. It is still anyone’s game on any particular Sunday. To have won three from six until now is something I wouldn’t have imagined. My starts got a bit better, not great though, and top five positions were enough today. In the second moto I could always see a leader in front of me, so I could rely on that, even though it was tough to pass here because there was only really one fast line. In the end I could control the moto. I enjoyed the fans here; they were amazing for their home heroes. I hope I can win a couple more world titles in my career and then I’ll lay on the beach knowing I’ve done enough!” said Herlings.

Jeffrey Herlings takes his 102nd Grand Prix victory.

The Grand Prix of France is the next event on the MXGP calendar, with the Villars sous Ecot circuit set to host the seventh round on May 20th-21st.
