Posted:



In an epic day of racing at the MXGP of the Netherlands the Women‰Ûªs Motocross World Championship chase tightened up to a new level of competitiveness with the top 4 in the standings only separated by 5 points.

Dutch native Nancy van de Ven took double race wins on her way to taking the narrow championship points lead in Assen.

In Saturday‰Ûªs WMX Race 1 Larissa Papenmeier led the opening 5 laps first over Team One One Four‰Ûªs Livia Lancelot and then Nancy van den Ven after the dutch rider made it by Lancelot on lap 3. After the pass on the #114 van de Ven went after Papenmeier and took the lead.



Meanwhile the title contenders of MXFONTA SYNECO‰ÛªS Kiara Fontanesi and Altherm JCR Yamaha‰Ûªs Courtney Duncan where coming back from 11th and 9th place starts. The pair was able to make it up to a 4th place finish for Duncan and a 5th for Fontanesi behind van de Ven, Papenmeier, and Lancelot.

Race 2 was full of passes and battle with the only exception being the #85 of van de Ven who led from the start and never looked back on her way to the race win and overall. The real shake up was between Fontanesi, Papenmeier, Lancelot, and Duncan who started 2nd,3rd,4th, and 6th with KTM Silver Action‰Ûªs Amandine Verstappen in the 5th position early.

Papenmeier struggled early and though she started in 3rd dropped to 6th only 3 laps in to the race. At the same time Duncan was moving forward quickly first to 4th on lap 3 and to 3rd on lap 7. However Livia Lancelot made a late charge going from fourth on lap 9 of 12 to cross the line in second ahead of Fontanesi, Duncan, and Papenmeier.

In the overall it was a clear home win for Nancy van de Ven with Lancelot taking second and Papenmeier rounding out the podium.
