Crowned last weekend in the Czech Republic with three rounds to spare, Jeffrey Herlings reinforced his status as one of motocross's hottest talents ever with his second MX2 World Championship.

The Dutch youngster has blasted away the competition this year with his displays – here are some of the stats that underline his phenomenal achievement.


Herlings' age in years at the time of his second MX2 world title. A month shy of his 19th birthday, Herlings is already the most successful motocross rider from the Netherlands.


The number of career World Championship MX Grand Prix wins Herlings has amassed. Expect that figure to rise before the end of the 2013 season.


Grand Prix wins for Herlings this year, from 14 rounds.

Moto wins from the 28 races that have been contested so far this season. In the two races he has not won, Herlings has finished second (in race two in Brazil) and third (in race one in Sweden).


Rounds in the campaign. If Herlings manages to win the three remaining Grands Prix, he will be the first rider to have accomplished the 'perfect' season.


Age when he won his first ever MX Grand Prix, in the Netherlands, in 2010. That made Herlings the second-youngest rider to take a GP victory at the age of 15 years and 225 days. Ken Roczen remains the youngest at 15 years and 53 days.


World Championships to date, with no let up in sight...
