Glenn Coldenhoff Inside Of The Top Five in Portuguese GP

  |   MXGP

Glenn Coldenhoff of the Red Bull KTM Factory Racing team finished fifth in the Portuguese round of the MXGP series. He finished seventh and sixth in the races respectively for fifth overall.


Stormy rains in the week leading up to the GP made the circuit a challenge, but the organisers moved heaven and earth to prepare it optimally.


Glenn had a solid  if not ideal qualification, and was determined to pull the best possible result out of the bag on Sunday. A bad start in the first race dropped him outside of the top twenty . He picked up the tempo, and after giving his all, finished seventh.


Glenn had a better start in race two, but two tangles with Tim Gajser and Julien Lieber created some drama. This again dropped him outside of the points zone, and again he had to fabricate a recovery. He did so with a plomb, finishing sixth.


“On Saturday I was not really at my best, but on Sunday I could fortunately turn it around into a positive result. I am happy with the team set up now and the bike is just impeccable,” he said. “I have the opportunity of working constantly with my training mechanic, and you can see it in my results. Today was good for my confidence, and with good starts I’m sure that I can mix it with the top riders.”
