Glenn Coldenhoff til KTM
Rygterne var altså sande. Glenn "The Hoff" Coldenhoff skifter til Red Bull KTM Factory i 2016, der i år har haft hvad man mildest talt kan kalde en forfærdelig sæson. Skader til De Dycker og Searle, og en brækket arm til flagskibet Cairoli. Det skal der rettet op på i 2016, og det skal Coldenhoff ændre på. Hollænderen slipper sin Suzuki - hvor han ikke kunne bruges - og kommer til at tørne ud på KTMs 450'er i MXGP-klassen, og der forventes meget af både Pit Beirer og teamchef Claudio Di Carli.
Originalt fra engelsk:
KTM Motorsport Director Pit Beirer: “We are very confident that Glenn will be a valuable addition to our MXGP lineup. He is a rider of talent and potential, qualities we always watch out for when recruiting for our senior motocross team. We believe Glenn will make a strong contribution and we look forward to him racing for plenty of podiums.”
Red Bull KTM Factory Racing MXGP Team Manager Claudio de Carli welcomed the arrival of Coldenhoff to his lineup, saying: “Talking with Glenn I felt he had the will, and the enthusiasm to be part of our group and I’m sure this is a positive start to building a good season. Glenn is young, with one year’s experience in MXGP, and he has already shown his qualities. We will try to make sure he is in the right condition to give his best, but without any pressure. Our goal in defining the 2016 team was to have a talented young rider with a lot of ambition and a desire to grow, alongside our great champion Antonio Cairoli. I believe that Glenn is the right choice.”
