  |   MXGP

Standing Construct KTM’s Glenn Coldenhoff claimed his second consecutive GP victory at Uddevalla in Sweden.

 

After his first GP victory of the season at Imola the week before, Coldenhoff eas brimming with confidence going to Sweden. He immediately impressed with second in the qualifying race.

 

A good start in the first race lobbed him into the leading group. Glenn built up his race steadily, and at mid-race distance took over the lead from Jeffrey Herlings. He fended off some attacks by Romain Febvre, riding to his third consecutive heat victory.

 

A start just inside the top ten in race two left him with some work to do. He moved up to fifth, and battled for a few laps to pass Jeremy Seewer for fourth. Pauls Jonass was his next victim, and when Febvre crashed, he knew he had to pass Jonass for the win. In the final lap he made the pass stick and managed to win the Grand Prix.

 

Glenn has moved up to fourth place in the world standings with his near maximum points haul. In two weekstime the series continues in Turkey.
