Up-coming talented riders will vie for time up-front, nothing to lose and all to gain. KTM Silver Action rider Amandine Verstappen put in stellar performance taking a Race win in WMX Round 4, 2017 and Suzuki rider Larissa Papenmeier gained credible Race 2nd at Assen WMX Round 2017.

With the prominence of Women Motorsport Athletes gaining long-time-coming traction within the sport, giving fans and viewers inspiration on ‘if you love what you do, nothing is impossible’ 2018 Women Motocross World Championships should not be missed.

It will come down to last Race, last Lap, last Corner come September 30th.
