Arise, Knight Herlings…!

MXGP World Champion Jeffrey Herlings (from Red Bull KTM Factory Racing) has received one of the greatest honours in Holland: the Order of Orange-Nassau.

He received the royal award from Dutch Minister of Sports Bruno Bruins during the Motorsport gala.

“What a night… amazing. To receive this honour is something very special. One of the greatest things that has ever happened to me. I wasn’t prepared and didn’t see this coming. I’m speechless but will go home tonight with a big smile on my face.” – Jeffrey Herlings.

At the same event, Herlings was also awarded the highest Dutch award in motorsports: the Hans de Beaufort trophy. 

Does everyone have to refer to him as Sit Herlings now…?
