If experience counts, the NZ’der will bring all confidence needed to face the competitive WMX class come gate drop in 3 weeks time. Not only has Courtney proved that #151 has what it takes to win against the cream of Women MX riders in the world, Courtney has undeniably overcome all obtstacles, challenges and set-backs to achieve long-sought after goal.

And, in doing so, CD has based off-season training in New Zealand. A decision held by 2x Women’s MX World Champion Kiwi Katherine Oberlin Brown (nee Prumm). Winning Women’s World Cup in 2006 and 2007, Katherine spent NZ’s summer in preparation mode racing against guys before heading over to Europe, acclimatize and race WMX.

Securing 2nd season racing under Bike It DRT Kawasaki, Duncan can welcome recognition for career success, along with recent nomination for NZ’s prestigous Halberg Awards. Securing Finalist place in the 57th ISPS Handa Halberg Awards NZ Sports Woman of the Year, Courtney honours all accolades of NZ’s highest achieving Women in Sport.

From debut WMX Opening Round in 2016 at Qatar, to number of set-backs with injuries, to seeing WMX lead slip away and then gathering enough nerve to conquer the lot and win, Duncan can stand in pride and place heading into 2020 WMX season.

We all wait with baited breath.

WMX Opening Round: Matterley Basin March 1st.
