Second victory in a row for Jeffrey Herlings in MXGP, Tom Vialle wins MX2 and takes the lead in the championship.

Valkenswaard (The Netherlands) March 8th, 2020 –  Rain and winter temperatures framed the Grand Prix of The Netherlands, the second round of 2020 FIM Motocross World Championship, which was held at the Valkenswaard circuit. The sandy soil was soaked from heavy rains and the Dutch track turned into a litany of holes and deep ruts. Pirelli riders were able to cope with the conditions thanks to the SCORPION™ MX32™ Mid Soft front, the SCORPION™ MX™ Soft rear and related mousses.
 
Jeffrey Herlings and Tim Gajser finished the MXGP motos on equal points but overall victory went to the Dutchman due to this victory in the second moto. Fourth position belonged to Antonio Cairoli ahead of Jeremy Van Horebeek in fifth. Pirelli occupy the top three positions in the championship standings with Herlings, Gajser and Cairoli.

Tom Vialle earned a second career Grand Prix win in the MX2 class which, thanks to today's result, pushes the Frenchman to the top of the championship standings. Countryman Maxime Renaux finished second in front of Jago Geerts, winner of the qualifying heat and first moto but who was forced into a difficult comeback in the second due to a fall exiting the first corner. There were good performances also by Jed Beaton in fourth and Ben Watson, fifth.
