GasGas Factory rider Glenn Coldenhoff has given an update on his injury from last Sundays opener in Lommel. Fortunately it is good news after a big scare. He was a top-five guy when he crashed and was showing real signs of his best form. The multiple GP winner will be back bigger and stronger in 2021.

Glenn Coldenhoff: “One small mistake, can have some big consequences. Unfortunately, it’s part of our sport. Lost the feeling in my arms the first moments after my crash but luckily it came back again after several minutes. We got everything checked here in Herentals and it turned out I have two compression fractures in my back (vertebrae T3/T4). Sad to say this season is over, as I felt stronger than ever. I will keep my head up and focus on my recovery from now. I have been here before and I know what to do to come back to the form I had. I am looking with confidence towards the future and I can’t wait to be behind the gate again. Thanks to the medical crew on track. They handled the situation really professional and took great care of me. Also thanks to Toon Claes and his team in Herentals. And of course, my team, family, friends, and everyone for the messages and support.”
