Duncan wins the battle, Lancelot wins the war
The final round of the FIM Women‰Ûªs Motocross World Championship took place this weekend at the historic Dutch TT Circuit, Assen, The Netherlands, where JCR Altherm Racing Yamaha‰Ûªs Courtney Duncan validated her label as ‰Û÷the next big thing‰Ûª, with yet another impressive round win, her third of the season.

What better way to wrap up a season than with a mudder, and not just any old mudder, we‰Ûªre talking quicksand, sea-deep ruts that ate more than 30 seconds out of their lap-times. No kidding, the fastest lap in Race 1, which took place in vastly different conditions Saturday, was 1:46.814 by Courtney Duncan, while in Race 2, it was again Courtney Duncan but with a lap time of 2:23.441. The conditions were so brutal, Duncan and the local ace, Nancy Van de Ven lapped all the way up to third!

After dominating race one, JCR Altherm Yamaha‰Ûªs Courtney Duncan proved just how widespread her skills are today with yet another outstanding performance. The Kiwi Girl has arguably the shortest legs in motocross, which makes mistakes extra costly with the ground being so far away.

After leading the entire race and stretching out a 26 second lead, the New Zealander got pitched in the waves and went off the track. ‰ÛÏI‰Ûªm so gutted,‰Û

With mud being the great equalizer, Holland‰Ûªs own Nicky Van Wordragen mastered the gnarly terrain to finish fourth ahead of Germany‰Ûªs Kim Immgartz who also put in the ride of her life for fifth.

JCR Altherm Yamaha‰Ûªs Courtney Duncan topped the box here in The Netherlands while Nancy Van de Ven had the Dutch flag raised above the second step. The newly crowned world champion, Team One One Four‰Ûªs Livia Lancelot kept her perfect podium streak alive by finishing third overall.

As for the championship, Team One One Four‰Ûªs Livia Lancelot landed on the box at all seven rounds this season, with one round win, for the 2016 WMX world title, ‰ÛÏI was almost thinking that I will never win a world championship again, but I managed to do it, so now I‰Ûªm world champion, and happy‰Û

Nancy Van de Ven made the podium six times with two rounds wins for second overall, while the 2009 vice-world champion, Larissa Papenmeier, made one podium appearance but was consistently knocking on the door of the top three, and finished third overall this season.
