Kiara Fontanesi FIM Women’s Motocross World Championship 2017

Kiara Fontanesi FIM Women’s Motocross World Championship 2017

Kiara Fontanesi leads the FIM Women’s Motocross World Championship 2017 carrying the Red Plate with 115 points from French star Livia Lancelot 114 points and NZ’s sensation Courtney Duncan with 108 points after Round 3 of the 6 Round Series.

Fontanesi 4x Women’s Motocross World Champion battled an unrewarding 2016 WMX season which placed her 4th in the coveted FIM WMX Series then gained the opportunity to switch to Yamaha for 2017 and remains comfortable, balanced and disciplined in her approach to clinching another highly sort after Women’s MX World Championship Title.Kiara Red PLate

Having raced Round One in Indonesia in a sea of mud and finishing well down in points, to recover by winning Round 2 at Trentino in Italy and then take the Red Plate in Round 3, Ernee, France, Kiara’s proved how formidable a competitor she is on a GP track.

What stands out, is Fontanesi’s character of mental alacrity, clear mindedness, ability to reassess when it goes right or wrong on the track and sheer fortitude to pick herself up when losses are part of the sport as much as rewards.

Yet, for Kaira it amounts to more than the taste of success. Racing Motocross at Women’s World Championship level is her love, her job, the reason she trains and races so hard and stimulates the lessons learnt from- if you loose and if you win.

With Round 3 completed out of the 6 Round WMX Series, Fontanesi and all Women are racing for the win, racing with the same determination as the men, and have proved their physical, mental and technical abilities are on a par with their counter-parts for all the world to see.

This film edit on Kiara, at MXGP WMX Round 3, Ernee, France offers insight on what makes Kiara tick, what keeps the passion for MX racing alive, and what motivates the young Italian to win.

My thanks to Kiara for her time.
