On the cusp of 3 month extended break from WMX Round 4 at Ottobiano back in June, clinching valuable points will be the focus to maintain Championship standings between the Worlds top 3 female riders.

Battling to maintain fitness, mental focus and speed with no racing for 13 weeks  will put Women MX’ers to the test, add Assen sand track, shifting lines and fans galore will make racing pumped for riders, crew and all watching.

No doubt, last weekend’s win for Italian WMX 5x Champion Kiara Fontanesi at Motocross of European Nations added fuel to the die-hard racer’s want for closing the gap on Red Plate holder NZ’s Courtney Duncan.

Equally, tied 2nd Overall WMX racer Nancy Van de Ven placed not far off Fontanesi’s pace at MoEN at Poland proved the Dutch racer has passion, want and determination to bring home her first ever WMX Championship Title.

NZ’s Courtney Duncan has sights firmly set on finishing what she started back in debut Season at opening WMX Round 2016 going 1-1 at Qatar. In 2017 Duncan pushed again for the coveted WMX Championship Title, and now holds 21 points advantage with 2 Rounds to go 018.

With Women gaining greater prominance in Motorsport, levelling the playing field to capture viewer watch-time WMX Assen GP will not disappoint.

Come gate-drop eyes from all over the world will witness a battle of wills, outcome on Sunday September 16th, 2018.
