In Sunday‰Ûªs second race, it was simply a matter of who could make the fewest mistakes would take victory.
Van De Ven grabbed the holeshot and led the early stages, while Fontanesi applied pressure to Van De Ven and passed her.
However, a few moments later, Fontanesi went down in a corner, tumbling over a berm. The challenges for Van De Ven then continued to grow as Duncan was next to make a pass.
The Kiwi was riding at a blistering pace, but was unable to maintain it, going down while leading for a second time. Van De Ven also went down in the race but both riders recovered lost ground, Van de Ven moving to fourth and Duncan to third.
For the overall podium, Duncan‰Ûªs 2-3 finishes handed her the runner-up spot for the weekend, behind Fontanesi, who had finished 1-2, but one step up from French Kawasaki rider and former world champion Livia Lancelot (5-1).
Duncan said there were positives to take away from the two races.
‰ÛÏThe speed was really good and I still have the red plate (as the WMX points leader). I have six weeks before the next round to learn and get better and hopefully come back swinging and in fine form for France.‰Û
