Having completed 2018 WMX Championship finishing 11th Overall, this year, Lynn definitely proved to all where her talents lie. Racing up-front amongst seasoned riders became more and more comfortable for the YZ250F Dutch rider, with Lynn showing confidence and determination to hold her lines, make passes and handle all that racing WMX throws on 5 different MXGP circuits.

With best result at MXGP of Portugal, finishing 5th Overall, Lynn takes stock on stand-out moments during WMX season. #172 knows where improvements will take place over winter in preparation for WMX 2020.

As #172 states: ‘Yes the WMX of Portugal was definitely the best weekend. I enjoyed it so much’.

‘All the other races I finished in top ten so I did conplete my goal to finish every race in top ten and finished 7th Overall in WMX Championship. But for this winter I want to work hard to get better for racing next year’.

I will be training a lot on the bike but also off the bike. I am already really looking forward for the WMX 2020 season!’

I caught up with Lynn at WMX Final Round at MXGP of Turkey and we spoke via skype on 2019 WMX season and what Lynn is looking forward to in WMX 2020.
