Wind back 2 years: Kiara’s 2016 WMX season was the best one for learning quote: ‘You know you learn nothing from winning. Yes, you are all happy with the win, but you know I have learnt more this year, with injuries, bike problems, disappointments, then coming back to win at my home GP in Mantova, than I learnt from winning 4 WMX Titles’.

Courtney’s 2016 WMX season was a steep learning curve. To believe Duncan’s WMX debut 1-1 in Qatar, stunning all with look on Media faces to die for, then to succumb to defeat, injury, and end with biggest come-back winning Final WMX Rounds confirms Courtney’s strength of character to race for the win.

Both Women met 2017 WMX with open minds. Both mentally strong, both physically fit, both technically experienced, both under no illusions 6 WMX Rounds would test strength of character unlike any previous WMX season. Both proved how Women’s Motocross World Championships is a force to be reckoned with, along with fan engagement at Rounds and online.
