It was WMX Final Round at MXGP of Turkey that Line produced best result of season finishing 5-7 for 6th Overall, overcoming niggling hindrances that have kept the Honda rider performing to the best of her ability.

As Line explains: ‘My weekend was pretty good. I felt good on the track in free and timed practice and I had a lot of fun out there. I made the 7th best time in the timed practice which was okay for me, since I’m not that good at timed practice’.

‘First race I got a good start, but I made a huge mistake in the second corner and was down to 7th I think. But I kept fighting and found a good rhythm and ended 5th’.

‘Second moto I also got a good start and I was running 2nd for a little bit but got passed. Anyway it was nice to keep up with the front girls. On the third last lap I made a mistake and crashed out from 5th to 7th. I will learn from my mistakes and I’m just happy I showed good speed this weekend’.

Having made most of track-time racing in Sweden, at home in Denmark and competing in EMX Women MX Championship, Line takes stock that all learning curves this season have helped improved her performance on and off the track.

#131: ‘There were a lot of good outside lines on this track, which means I could avoid some of the big ruts, and that actually helped me alot. But I tried to stay calm in the deep ruts and just try to do as my coach has taught me’.

Moving up WMX Championship table from finishing 10th Overall in 2018 to 8th Overall in 2019, Line banks all knowledge and race experience gained as invaluable to set-up preparations for next WMX season.

#131: ‘My speed and fitness was much better going into this season than the last one. It helps me to gain more speed faster and feel more comfortable on the bike during the races. Now, I just need to gain even more speed and also not to crash’.

‘I don’t have a plan for the winter season yet. I will definitely take some time off when the season is done and then go back on the bike and give 110%’.

I caught up with Line at WMX Final Round at MXGP of Turkey via Skype, asking Line on her WMX season, what she was pleased with, and what is next on bucket WMX list for 2020. Film edit below.
