Glenn Coldenhoff tends to fly under the radar, as his teammates hog headlines more often than not. The opening round of the Internazionali D'Italia series, which took place yesterday, was no different. Coldenhoff limped to an eleventh and a ninth in the two motos that were run, which was obviously much worse than most anticipated. A hand injury has hindered him recently though.
"The first race in the books," Coldenhoff said in a statement. "I picked up a small injury last week during practice so my speed and riding was not the best today but I was still happy that I could race. I am going home to get some treatment now and then we will look towards the International at Hawkstone Park." Red Bull KTM then went on to confirm that he was "nursing a sore left hand as a consequence of a minor training accident the previous week."
It seems that the injury is not too serious, as Glenn Coldenhoff is obviously pushing through it and acquiring respectable results. There is still a month to go until the opening round of the FIM Motocross World Championship, which will be held in Argentina on the first weekend in March, so it is most likely that he will be close to one hundred percent by the time that the gates drop there.
