Another Top Ten GP Finish For Glenn Coldenhoff At Latvian GP
Glenn Coldenhoff of the Standing Construct KTM team scored another top ten finish at the MXGP round at Kegums, Latvia. Coldenhoff fought back bravely after a heavy crash in race one to finish 12th. In the second race, he fought his way forward from outside the top ten to finish 8th.
“The weekend started off well on Saturday, “he said. “I was competitive in lap times and always part of the mix. I finished 8th in the qualifying heat and that ensured me of a good start gate pick for Sunday.”
Glenn started off 8th in the first heat, but crashed heavily in the second corner. He was way down the field and in a lot of pain, yet he soldiered on. He came up all the way to 12th place, and crossed the line right on the heels of Tommy Searle.
Glenn was motivated for the second race. He launched just outside the top ten, but his rhythm was good and he could work his way forward. He eventually finished 8th, which was also his overall placement.
“Eighth overall is not the greatest, but also not the worst,” he commented. Our next race is at Teutschenthal in Germany. It is not my favourite track, but ironically I did well there over the last two years, and I am feeling positive about the outing.”
Glenn is currently ninth in the world standings, just ten points adrift of eighth spot.
