Glenn Coldenhoff 7th in Trentino Created: 2024-04-16

Glenn Coldenhoff placed his XXF 450 in a brilliant third place in Saturday’s qualifying race, followed by a solid P7 overall on Sunday.

Glenn Coldenhoff was phenomenal in the qualifying race on Saturday, placing the Fantic XXF 450 in third for a promising start to the MXGP of Trentino. In Sunday’s races, the Dutchman could not quite take profit from the good gate pick. Starting outside the top 15 in race 1, Coldenhoff had to settle for ninth place. A better start in race 2 saw the Fantic Factory Racing Rider inside the top 10 right from the beginning, a strong sixth place earned him seventh overall.

His new teammate Brian Bogers struggled to find the flow on the hard pack track of Arco di Trento but improved throughout the weekend. P16 and P14 finishes in the two races saw him in 14th overall in only his second Grand Prix back in the MXGP World Championship

Glenn Coldenhoff: ”Saturday was really good, I had a good start and was second for a while. In the end Gajser took me but third was still a confidence boost going into Sunday. My starts were not that great today, especially in the first moto I was in middle of the pack. I also did a small mistake and ended up ninth. The second moto was a bit better, I was just a little bit off the pace. In the last few laps I started to get my rhythm. It was way too late but at least I could run the same lap times than the other guys. I will take the positives. We have two weekends off now to work and get ready for three back-to-back races to hopefully make some more progress. The goal is to be at least in the top 5 – and maybe get a podium.”

Brian Bogers: ”I made it difficult for myself with starts outside the top 20. I also haven’t ridden on a track like this in the last seven months – since Matterley Basin last year. Of course, this is not the result I wanted but if you consider where I am right now, we also can’t be disappointed. I still wanted more but now we have three weeks to get fitter again for the next round in Portugal. We will get better results for sure.”
