Glenn Coldenhoff Unbeatable As He Writes History At Motocross Of Nations

Glenn Coldenhoff of the Standing Construct KTM Team was in sublime form ad he helped team Netherlands to claim the Motocross of Nations trophy for the first time in history. Coldenhoff wad masterful on the muddy track of Assen, and not only was he the main cog in securing the team trophy for the Dutch team, he also claimed individual honours in the Open Class.

Glenn came to the event riding on the crest of a wave. The track was perfectly prepared, and Glenn easily posted the fastest training time in his class. The Dutch team had a bad lot for the gate in the qualifying heat, but Glenn converted his 27th gate into a third place in qualifying.

Some incessant rain overnight and throughout race day turned the track into a quagmire.

Glenn kept his wits about him under the atrocious conditions. He quickly moved into the lead in his first race, and was never again challenged. In the second race, he recovered from fifth position, steadily working his way forward. He again moved into the lead and claimed the double victory. With this he secured individual honours in the Open Class, but more importantly, helped Team Netherlands to become Motocross of Nations champions for the first time.

Ivo Monticelli represented the Italian team at the Motocross of Nations. He qualified ninth in the MXGP class, and acquitted himself well in the muddy conditions, finishing seventh in the first race. He was lying fifth in the second race when a crash with a lapped rider, forced him to retire from the race. He was 11th overall in the MXGP class, and the Italian team was 16th in the country classification.
