The long wait is over and New Zealand‰Ûªs Courtney Duncan has packed her bags and returned to Europe this week to continue her Women‰Ûªs Motocross World Championship (WMX) title defence.

Duncan has been home in Dunedin since March, flying back after the second WMX round in The Netherlands, with a five-point lead over her closest rival Larissa Papenmeier. Since then the MXGP calendar has been affected by Covid-19 and Duncan has been waiting on a green light for the women‰Ûªs racing to resume.

The 24-year-olds final three rounds are all scheduled to take place in Italy. The first two meetings on September 27 (MXGP Lombardia) and September 30 (MXGP of CittÌÊ di Mantova), which are both held on the hard sand Mantova track, are following the 2020 FIM Motocross World Championship‰Ûªs new racing format of mid-week races.

Duncan will remain in Europe and train towards the final Italian round - the MXGP of Trentino on November 1 ‰ÛÒ where she is targeting her name being re-engraved on the winner‰Ûªs trophy for 2020.

‰ÛÏI‰Ûªd be lying if I said I was happy with just one world championship. I want another one and that‰Ûªs what I‰Ûªm aiming towards. I want to go over there and ride to the best of my ability. I‰Ûªll be putting myself in good positions to score some strong finishes and the rest will come,‰Û
