Strong overall results for Coldenhoff, Sydow and Langenfelder at challenging second round of Motocross World Championship



GASGAS Factory Racing have enjoyed three top-10 overall results at round two of the FIM Motocross World Championship, the MXGP of The Netherlands at the iconic Valkenswaard circuit. Racing in the MXGP class for Standing Construct GASGAS Factory Racing, Glenn Coldenhoff overcame first lap crashes in both races to end the GP with 7-9 results, earning seventh overall.



The DIGA Procross GASGAS Factory Juniors pairing of Simon Langenfelder and Jeremy Sydow stole the show in the second MX2 moto. Racing together as they battled at the front of the field, Langenfelder placed fifth in just the second GP of his career to earn 10th overall while Sydow recorded 14-8 results for eighth overall.



•    Three GASGAS Factory Racing riders inside the top-10 at MXGP of The Netherlands

•    MC 250F and MC 450F machinery faultless at demanding Dutch circuit

•    Coldenhoff now lies sixth in the MXGP standings while Sydow is 10th in MX2




Glenn Coldenhoff made a great start in the opening MXGP race, running as high as sixth place, before coming together with another rider on the opening lap. The Dutchman remounted and fought through the talent-stacked MXGP field to break into the top-10 on lap 11 of the 17-lap race. On the penultimate lap, Glenn moved into ninth position where he remained until the finish.



A first turn crash in race two saw Coldenhoff trapped in Clement Desalle’s bike, resulting in a burn to his leg. Despite this, and a subsequent additional fall, Coldenhoff remounted and ended the opening lap in 32nd before beginning a race-long charge to the front. Making more late race passes, he moved into seventh place to also earn seventh overall in the MXGP class. Glenn now moves up to sixth in the MXGP series standings ahead of round three in Argentina in two weeks’ time.



Ivo Monticelli recorded a strong first MXGP moto finish in Valkenswaard. Running as high as 13th early in the race, he dropped back to 16th on lap five before latching onto the back of teammate Coldenhoff who was on his own charge through the field. Running in 14th place at the midway stage of the race, the Italian went on to finish the moto in 15th. A great start in the second race saw the MC 450F mounted rider running in sixth place early in the moto before a big crash saw the Italian land on his shoulder, which led to an early end to his race.



Placing eighth overall in the MX2 class was DIGA Procross GASGAS Factory Juniors’ Jeremy Sydow. Continuing to collect valuable points in his first full season of MX2 World Championship competition, the youngster ended race one in a strong 14th position. Finishing a superb eighth in the second moto, Sydow placed eighth overall and moves up three places to 10th in the championship standings.



Simon Langenfelder narrowly missed out on a points scoring ride in race one, ending the moto in 21st position despite a heavy fall. Making a huge step forward in moto two, a top-10 start saw the 15-year-old, in just his second GP, run in a strong third position for no fewer than six laps.



Relinquishing pressure from two much more experienced rivals in the closing stages of the moto, the young German remained composed and finished the moto in fifth place, earning his first ever MX2 World Championship points.



Both Standing Construct GASGAS Factory Racing and the DIGA Procross GASGAS Factory Juniors will next be in action at round three of the FIM Motocross World Championship on March 22, at the MXGP of Patagonia Argentina.




Glenn Coldenhoff: “
For sure not the results that I wanted as I was confident that I had the speed and fitness to be on the podium, but things just didn’t go the way I needed them to. Everyone knows I love the sand, and especially when it’s deep and demanding like it was this weekend. To get on the podium you have to be up front during the opening laps and frustratingly that didn’t happen for me.


Things started well in the first moto and I got a solid start. But around the first lap I came together with another rider and that put me dead last, so I had a lot of work to do. I got back up to ninth, but of course I wanted a better result than that. The second race went wrong at the first corner. I crashed with Clement Desalle and got both my legs between his rear wheel and exhaust and burned my leg.



I got going, fell again on the first lap, and, yeah, not what we’d hoped for. It’s always tough when you don’t get the result you know you can achieve, especially when you’re enjoying the track and conditions. But we’ll keep working and look forward to Argentina.”






Ivo Monticelli:
“This has been a better weekend that the first GP because I took some points in the first race, but it’s also been a difficult GP with a heavy crash in the second race. I wasn’t able to ride too much before Valkenswaard because I needed a lot of massage and physio on the shoulder that I hurt at Matterley, so I was expecting things to be difficult.



I managed to find a good rhythm in the first moto, and I was happy, also not too far from the top 10. So, to score some points was good. In the second race I had a good start, but then I crashed really heavily, went over the handlebars and landed on my shoulder again. I’m hoping nothing is damaged badly but we will get it checked and work on getting back to full fitness.”
