Yamaha Motor Europe has announced that Glenn Coldenhoff will complete the three-rider line-up at the Monster Energy Yamaha Factory MXGP team, where he will campaign a YZ450FM alongside Jeremy Seewer and Ben Watson in the 2021 FIM Motocross World Championship.

Hailing from the Oss in the North Brabant Province of The Netherlands, Coldenhoff is a regular frontrunner in the MXGP series. Throughout his illustrious career, the 29-year-old has finished on the podium 19 times, including five Grand Prix wins.

In addition to his Grand Prix success, Coldenhoff has played a key role in the achievements of The Netherlands at the prestigious Monster Energy Motocross of Nations. Coldenhoff has gone unbeaten at ‰Û÷the nations‰Ûª for the past two years with memorable 1-1 victories in the USA in 2018 and at the TT Circuit Assen in 2019. Thanks to Coldenhoff‰Ûªs scintillating performances, together with strong rides from his two teammates, the Dutch team celebrated its first-ever Motocross of Nations victory in in front of their home crowd.

Coldenhoff is currently recovering from a neck injury that was sustained in a crash at the MXGP of Flanders in Lommel, Belgium. The Dutch sensation has already started his rehabilitation and is confident that he will be back to full-fitness and ready to fight for Grand Prix wins in 2021.

‰ÛÏI feel very welcomed by the whole Yamaha family. From the first moments we met, I felt there was a very motivated and ambitious team awaiting me," Coldenhoff said. "I am really thankful for the opportunity. I strongly believe that I can still make progress, win races and can fight for the championship. I know Yamaha will give me everything to achieve these goals. My recovery is going well, and I cannot wait to jump on the blue bike soon.‰Û
