Livia Lancelot takes home win at French GP

Posted:



The second day of the Fiat Professional MXGP of France at ErnÌ©e started out with the FIM Women‰Ûªs Motocross World Championship Race 2.

Over the two days of racing French motocross superstar, Team One One Four‰Ûªs Livia Lancelot was consistently fast and claimed her first overall of the year and she did it in front of her home crowd.

Both the WMX races were epic with several lead changes and battles abound. In Race 1 MXFonta Racing‰Ûªs Kiara Fontanesi had the lead with a lap and a half remaining but she fell on the uphill and lost out to Nancy Van de Ven, Livia Lancelot, and several other riders. With one lap to go and Van de Ven in the lead Lancelot charged to the front, passed Van de Ven, and won Race 1 in an epic fashion in front of the roaring French fans.



Larissa Papenmeier rallied her way into 3rd just ahead of Fontanesi. The last spot in the top 5 of Race 1 went to the German rider, Stephanie Laier.

After leading and then crashing out of Race 1 Altherm JCR Yamaha‰Ûªs Courtney Duncan came back with a vengeance making her way to the front of Race 2 by lap 2 even after a near 10th place start. Livia Lancelot took the Holeshot but she was quickly passed by Nancy Van De Ven on the first jump. Lancelot didn‰Ûªt let Nancy lead for long though and by the end of the first lap was in first. After Duncan‰Ûªs pass on Lancelot it was a game of cat and mouse for the lead but Lancelot knew she had the overall and wisely settled for second.
Livia Lancelot gave the home crowd something to cheer about with a hometown win for the Frenchwoman.
Kiara Fontanesi started in a similar position as Duncan but didn‰Ûªt move forward as quickly. On lap 4 Duncan passed Van De Ven for 3rd, the pair remained 3rd and 4th through to the finish. 5th was taken by Papenmeier and 6th was Sara Andersen.

Overall on the weekend Lancelot‰Ûªs 1-2 prevailed and the 47 championship points earned have her only 1 point of the lead of Fontanesi. Van De Ven‰Ûªs 2-4 took second, Fontanesi‰Ûªs 4-3 took third, and the final spots in the top five went to the consistent Papenmeier and Andersen.

Australian Maddy Brown finished with a 12-16 result over the two motos and now sits in 18th for the championship. Australia's ohter representative Emma Milesevic is in 27th having only cometed in the Italian round.
