Jeffrey Herlings is the lastest factory rider to be announced for the Hawkstone International set for February 17, 2019.

And unless James Stewart decides he needs to check off one more thing on his bucket list, Herlings is as big a draw we can expect at the Shropshire circuit for the famous pre-season international. And that’ll do us nicely.

Herlings and Hawkstone go together like Dave Thorpe and Honda – the Dutchman loves the deep gnarly sand of Hawkstone and has never failed to deliver a stunning performance that blows the competition away, much to the awe of fans.


Of course, that’s not going to stop some top riders having a go with Max Anstie the first to put his name down for the event, shortly followed by Tommy Searle and recently Jed Beaton – who will all be shaking down their new 2019 rides.

It’ll be interesting to see if the Salop Club enforce their tear-off ban for this event.

Keep it locked to Dirt Bike Rider for more 2019 Hawkstone International announcements coming soon.
