Women MX World Championship Round 4 of 5 this weekend at Imola

Women MX World Championship Round 4 of 5 will be nail-biting weekend, with Red Plate holder Courtney Duncan set on making 2019 WMX Title count carrying 14 point buffer over Dutch racer Nancy Van de Ven and fast approaching points getter Larissa Papenmeier rounding off 3rd Overall.

With stellar race results so far, Duncan hails all-out speed over her rivals, nailing 5 wins from 6 races over 3 Rounds, with Nancy van de Ven taking the only other win at MXGP of Belgium- Lommel in Race 2.

Hard on bike wheels, with starts on point, 3rd place Larissa Papenmeier has upped ante this season, fully engaging with new YZ250F to post consistent 2nd’s x2, 3rd’s x3 and 4th over 6 races.

With both Nancy and Larissa finishing 2nd and 3rd in 2018 WMX Final Round at Imola behind WMX 6x Champion Kiara Fontanesi, the determined Kiwi #151 needs plenty of focused, precise race-craft to retain points lead come racing.

Solid performances from Amandine Verstappen and Shana van der Vlist standing 4th and 5th Overall, have to counted as threat to mix rider positions up front. With the newly crowned 2019 Women French Champion Verstappen finishing 4th at Imola WMX Final Round in 2018, along younger KTM rider Van der Vlist pulling off 7th place- starts, consistant lap-times and no mistakes will be key to stay within podium contention.
