  |   No category

Glenn Coldenhoff has started the season well at the opening round of the Italian Championship in Riola Sardo. The Red Bull KTM rider finished eighth in the MX1 race and fifth in the Elite Class for a solid start to the season in a top quality field.


Coldenhoff: “I had a bad start in the first race and I was quite disappointed because I was really struggling, also a bit with the bike setup and some arm pump problems. But I was quite fired up for the second race and I must say the suspension was working unbelievably well. My start was not so good but I think my riding and my speed were right on point. Next week we’re at Malagrotta and that’s where our team is based. I think I have done about a million laps there but I’m happy to be there. It’s always a difficult track, but I always feel at home.”
