Ivo Monticelli thirteenth overall in final MXGP of the season in Arco di Trento

In the MXGP class, Standing Construct’s Ivo Monticelli fired out of the gate to claim the race one holeshot in the opening moto of the MXGP of Garda di Trentino! Leading for two laps, he showed he has the pace to run up front in the MXGP class before disaster struck. With a rock damaging his front brake it forced the Italian to slow his pace, dropping down the running order and ending the moto in 17th. Frustratingly, moto two didn’t see Ivo produce quite the same start as he had in the opening race. Battling for position just outside the top 10 for the whole moto, he claimed 12th for 13th overall. In a season blighted by injuries and illness, Monticelli enjoyed four holeshots along with five top-10 moto finishes on his way to placing 15th in the final standings.

Absent from the tail end of the 2020 FIM Motocross World Championship was Standing Construct’s Glenn Coldenhoff. After claiming GASGAS Factory Racing’s maiden MXGP moto and overall wins during the summer, the Dutchman was poised to secure a top-three championship result. Unfortunately, a heavy crash at round 13 ended his season early and despite missing six rounds, he finished eighth in the final standings.

Ivo Monticelli: “The final GP of the year started off so well for me with the holeshot in race one. I then led for two laps, which was nice, and it was good to be up front and race with the top guys. A good start is what I’ve needed and I got it, so I was really pleased with how my race was going. Unfortunately, a few laps into the race a rock damaged my front brake, so it was difficult to stop for corners and caused me to crash a few times. Race two was ok, but it was difficult to pass, so 12th was the best I could do. This season has been very challenging, with a shoulder injury, stomach virus and a sprained ankle but I always gave my best effort. I had four holeshots and one today so it’s always nice to be leading races! Overall, not quite the season I was looking for but I have to thank the Standing Construct team. They have been behind me the whole time and built me a great bike. We’ve been together two years with many highlights so I wish them well for the future.”
