Glenn Coldenhoff sixth in the Grand Prix of Lombardia

  |   MXGP

Mantova was a very good weekend for Red Bull KTM factory rider Glenn Coldenhoff who registered an 8-5 moto result for overall sixth.

 

Coldenhoff, who is delivering improved results, gaining in confidence and says he’s feeling better on the bike, but this weekend he did struggle with the heat. “I never like riding in such hot conditions,” he said. “I had a good start in the first moto but I dropped back a bit but with my eighth place I was able to stay in the top 10. My start wasn’t quite as good in the second race and I had to come back from seventh to fourth. I rode a good race but in the end Desalle passed me and I finished fifth. Also my riding was a bit tight in both motos.”

 

After twelve rounds Coldenhoff sits in eight position in the world championship standings.
