Coldenhoff Qualifies Second at Dutch Grand Prix

Coldenhoff Qualifies Second at Dutch Grand Prix

Monster Energy Yamaha Factory MXGP’s Glenn Coldenhoff put in a thrilling ride on home soil to qualify second at the 16th of the FIM Motocross World Championship, in Arnhem, The Netherlands. At the same time, Monster Energy Yamaha Factory MX2’s young Dutch star Rick Elzinga secured fourth in MX2 ahead of Jago Geerts in fifth.

The Arnhem circuit was characterized by high-speed sections, technically challenging deep sand ruts and tricky square edged bumps. In these difficult conditions, Seewer stormed to a trademark holeshot in the MXGP Qualifying Race and led the first three laps before losing his flow and dropping back to fourth. 

Spurred on by the loud and supportive Dutch crowd, Coldenhoff capitalized on a mistake by his teammate and took the lead, but after making a mistake of his own, he ended up finishing second behind Romain Febvre. 

Maxime Renaux, after a less than ideal start, managed to fight to 10th.

In MX2, Elzinga powered his works YZ250FM to an incredible holeshot and led the first six laps before fading back to fourth due to arm pump. 

At the same time, Jago Geerts put in an exceptional ride, despite the pain and stiffness of a recent collarbone surgery, he managed to finish fifth.
