Prumm closes in on world title

New Zealand‰Ûªs Katherine Prumm closed to within one point of the championship lead as her women‰Ûªs world motocross championship defence hit the midway stage in Sweden at the weekend. The 19-year-old from Bombay, in South Auckland, led a Kawasaki 1-2-3 to the top of the podium at Uddevalla, Sweden, on Sunday. Prumm (Molson Kawasaki KX250F) was by far the fastest rider on the track but a poor start in the first race cost her and she had to settle for third, behind Germany‰Ûªs Stephanie Laier (KTM) and France‰Ûªs Livia Lancelot (Kawasaki). Prumm made amends in the next race, winning easily, taking the day‰Ûªs overall honours and making her favourite again to win the world crown she first picked up last season. Joining her on the Swedish podium were fellow Kawasaki riders Lancelot, who was second overall, and Maria Franke (Germany), third. Lancelot is the new championship leader, taking the top spot from previous leader Larissa Papenmeier (Germany, KTM), who managed only fourth overall in Sweden on Sunday, but Lancelot has no breathing space with Prumm just one point behind her and with one round in the Women‰Ûªs World Cup series still to come. Prumm was disappointed after finishing fourth overall at the opening round in Teutschenthal, Germany, three weeks earlier, but now has her campaign back on track. ‰ÛÏIt really was an awesome result for her to come back like that,‰Û
