1: WMX Series, now in it’s 14th season has gained credibility of world-class Women racers from the early years of NZ’s Katherine Prumm winning WMX Tiltes in 2006 and 2007, Stephanie Laier 2005, 2009-2011, Livia Lancelot 2008 and 2016, and Kiara Fontanesi 2012-2015 and 2017.

2018 WMX shifts gears again with NZ’s Courtney Duncan holding the Red Plate going into WMX Round 4 this weekend.

2: WMX Series 6 Rounds, running from April through to September stretches the Women MX racers limits to maintain peak-fitness, no mean task with gaps of 5 weeks and more between Rounds.

3: WMX Series sets precedent on Rider marketability to gain Factory/Brand support, sponsorship, product endorsements and financial backing through Women’s professionalism, committment to engage fans, responsibility to maintain reciprocal working relations with Team personal along with availibility for Media sessions.
