Papenmeier takes over WMX Championship lead as Duncan falters
Round winner Larissa Papenmeier now holds a ten point advantage as championship leader with one round remaining.
The FIM Women‰Ûªs Motocross World Championship (WMX) made its return in Mantova, Italy, for round three with defending champion Courtney Duncan having the best and worst result for the rounds two motos while Larissa Papenmeier took the championship lead.

After a five-month Covid-19-induced break, the Duncan made her comeback in convincing style on the sandy track with a win in the MXGP of Lombardia‰Ûªs opening race, fifteen seconds ahead of Larissa Papenmeier and Kiara Fontanesi.

The shortened race programme meant the WMX field lined up only hours later for their second race. Duncan had made her way up to second place when she had what she described as a ‰ÛÏmassive crash.‰Û

‰ÛÏIt was an up and down day for me, which started off really well as I won the first race and felt pretty good. I had a comfortable lead and maintained it,‰Û

Kawasaki New Zealand Managing Director Shane Verhoeven added: ‰ÛÏIt was great to watch Courtney race the new 2021 KX250 in dominating fashion in the first race at the MXGP Lombardia. The Kawasaki NZ team hope that she is feeling ok after her race 2 crash and we wish her all the best to regroup and finish out the season strong.‰Û
