Second GP Victory In Succession For Standing Construct KTM
Standing Construct KTM’s Glenn Coldenhoff claimed his second GP victory in succession 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 heat victory in succession.
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.
Ivo Monticelli tried to go out on Saturday after his heavy crash at Imola, but it was clear that his head injury required more rest. He will rest up the next two weeks and hopefully be ready for the Turkish GP.
Max Anstie is out for three weeks due to his lung injury and hopes to be ready for the Motocross of Nations.
