Glenn Coldenhoff scores a tenth position in the Grand Prix of Trentino

  |   MXGP

Glenn Coldenhoff of the Red Bull KTM Factory team who had recovered from his tweaked shoulder after a hefty crash in the Grand Prix of Mexico two weeks previously, started the first moto of the Grand Prix in Trentino badly and circulated with Herlings; eventually taking seventeenth spot. #259 stuck with his countryman around the opening turns of the second sprint and completed the race with tenth and fourteenth in the Grand Prix classification.

 

Coldenhoff: “We had some issues on Saturday, made some changes and then felt much better. We had a problem in the Qualification Heat and it made me a bit wary but I was hopeful for the motos because if I knew I had the start then I’d be OK. I had to use the clutch a little in the first start and didn’t get away well. I wasn’t comfortable in that moto and couldn’t do what I wanted. I was fighting hard but was stuck behind [Tanel] Leok for a while. I finished seventeenth and was really disappointed. The second moto start was much better and I was in the top four but didn’t have the speed like the top guys; I was a little bit off the pace. Tenth is a solid result but I’m still disappointed.”

 

MXGP barely pauses now with round six of the series taking place this coming weekend at the Eurocircuit, Valkenswaard in the Netherlands for the Grand Prix of Europe.
