Courtney Duncan rebounds in race two for overall win in Indonesian

Posted:

The FIM Women‰Ûªs Motocross World Championship started this week with race one on Saturday and race two taking place on Sunday where Altherm JCR Yamaha‰Ûªs Courtney Duncan took the first Red Plate of the season.

On Race 1 Nancy Van de Ven came out on a mission, making minimal errors and leaving her with a 1 minute and 24 second lead across the finish. Team Nine Six Four‰Ûªs Nicky van Wordragen finished in a well earned second position followed by Anne Borchers from Germany while Team One One Four‰Ûªs Livia Lancelot and MXFonta Yamaha Racing‰Ûªs Kiara Fontanesi had issues and were looking to rebound Sunday and that is exactly what they did.

For Sunday‰Ûªs race 2 New Zealand‰Ûªs Altherm JCR Yamaha‰Ûªs Courtney Duncan came out well prepared and it showed, she won the race and after her 5th place on race 1 she grabbed the overall and the red plate. However, she had a short fall in which she later said: ‰ÛÏmy coach, Josh Coppins was by my side and guided me through it all day and we got the job done‰Û_I didn‰Ûªt want to have a second, I really wanted to have a win here, so I charged back and got the win!‰Û
Kiwi Courtney Duncan now heads to round 2 with the leaders red plate.
Nicky Van Wordragen from the Netherlands rode consistent between the two days earning herself second overall. Creymert Racing‰Ûªs Shana van der Vlist was a top performer in race 1 finishing 4th, but her well earned eighth in race 2 gave her the final spot on the podium. German Anne Borchers was 3rd in race 1 but after a demanding race 2 she slid back one position in the overall classification finishing 4th.

Former champion MXFonta Yamaha Racing‰Ûªs Kiara Fontanesi had a few mistakes on day one but was determined on Sunday, she finished in a strong second place in race two putting herself 5th overall.

Last year‰Ûªs World Champion, Team One One Four‰Ûªs Livia Lancelot had a strong showing in race 2 after problems in race one. Lancelot responded to the challenge and came out 9th overall while Nancy Van de Ven finished 10th overall due to a disqualification on race 2. The disqualification was a result of outside assistance.

Australian Maddy Brown was classed as 14th in race one after qualifying 8th fastest. The young Victorian was running fourth for most of the moto until she fried her clutch with 4 laps to go. She was classed as 15th in the second race. Overall for the round she finished 16th with 13 points for the round.
