Consistent British Grand Prix for Glenn Coldenhoff

  |   MXGP

Glenn Coldenhoff of the Red Bull KTM Factory Racing team collected a bagful of points at the ninth round of the MXGP world championship series at Matterley Basin in the UK.

 

Coldenhoff finished sixth in both heats which was good for sixth overall. His performances showed a rising line throughout the weekend.  “During free practice I was battling, but we changed some settings which helped a lot. I was second for a long while in the qualifying heat, and eventually finished third. With KTMs in the top three spots, we could call it a great day,” he said.

 

Glenn battled initially in the first race on a track that had been watered excessively. From mid race distance he found his groove, and finished sixth.

 

Glenn recovered from a bad start in race two and worked himself up to sixth again.  “I just could not catch the riders ahead, and finished sixth again. It was good points harvest, though.  I’m still seventh in the standings and opened up a bit of a gap on 8th, but I am a bit disappointed after such a good Saturday.”

 

Glenn will be in action again at the French GP im St Jean d’Angely next weekend.
