Strong Sixth Place Fot Glenn Coldenhoff at French GP

  |   MXGP

Glenn Coldenhoff of the Red Bull KTM Factory Racing team continued to rake in the MXGP world championship points with sixth place at the French GP at St Jean d’Angely. This was by a dint of fifth – and seventh places in the heats respectively.


Coldenhoff crashed during Saturday’s qualifying heat, and could get no higher than 17th place. Fortunately this track is such that any position on the start gate gives the opportunity for a good launch.


Racing got underway on a muddy and tricky track on Sunday. Glenn launched into seventh spot. He quickly worked his way up to third, and held this for a while. He kept multiple world champion Antonio Cairoli behind him for a number of laps, but eventually had to let him past. He lost another position when he tightened up and finished fifth.


A lesser start in the second race gave Glenn work to do. He found his rhythm in the second half of the race, and made a good number of positions. He passed Jeremy Seewer in the last corner to claim seventh.


Glenn was sixth overall for the day and is seventh in the world championship series. His campaign continues in Ottobiano, Italy, next weekend.
