Improvement for Glenn Coldenhoff at the Grand Prix of Bulgaria

  |   MXGP

Glenn Coldenhoff recovered from a tough Qualification outing and 13th pick in the start gate to record a 9-7 for 7th in the Grand Prix of Bulgaria. The Dutchman ended the weekend encouraged by his second moto launch in the top five and a rate of speed and performance that showed improvement across the difficult terrain.


Coldenhoff: “I was struggling a lot this weekend and was very disappointed after the first moto. Tracks like this are very old school on very hard-pack ground and the most important thing for me is the fact that I felt like I improved before the end of the GP. The second moto was pretty good and I was up there with Tony and Jeffrey. I could follow [Clement] Desalle for quite a while and although finishing seventh was a bit disappointing I gave all I had today. Seventh overall through a difficult weekend is still quite solid. I feel good on the bike and I hope for a bike of luck and a good feeling in Turkey. I want that podium finish this year!”


Back in MXGP and the first Grand Prix of Turkey for ten years will take place at the new circuit of Afyonkarahisar next weekend.


Next race: Grand Prix of Turkey, Afyonkarahisar, September 2nd
