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.
