Women’s World Motocross Champion 2006 and 2007: Katherine Prumm (now Oberlin-Brown)

NZ’s Katherine Prumm (now Oberlin-Brown) made Motocross history winning 2 World Women’s MX Titles in 2006 and 2007 setting a new era for female motorsport athletes to achieve on the world stage.

The phenomenal achievement for the then, 18 year old not only broke precedence with Katherine training and racing against her male peers in NZ but also paved the way for future female Motocross riders to aspire to Professional racing.

Setting the highest possible goals of ‘wanting to be Women’s World Champion by the time I am 18’, Katherine’s dedication, desire, drive and commitment marked a special place in Europe’s World MX history with her name placed among the most prestigious ever known.

Katherine’s 2006 Title was certainly ranked among the greatest MX Champions:
FIM Motocross World Champion MX1 STEFAN EVERTS
FIM Motocross World Champion MX2 CHRISTOPHE POURCEL
FIM Motocross World Champion MX3 YVES DEMARIA
FIM Motocross of Nations Winning Team U.S.A.
MX1 Rider of the winning Team of the 2006 FIM Motocross of Nations JAMES STEWART
MX2 Rider of the winning Team of the 2006 FIM Motocross of Nations RYAN VILLOPOTO
FIM Motocross Women World Cup Winner KATHERINE PRUMM

On the eve of 2016 Women’s World Motocross Championships, NZ’s Courtney Duncan is poised to take on WMX status with Round 3 at Teutschenthal, Germany this coming weekend. Currently leading the WMX Championship, Courtney shows equal fire and determination to stamp her name on the World Women’s Title podium.

Co-incidence aside, as Katherine won the 2006 WMX Opening Round at the same venue, Prumm (Oberlin-Brown) and now Duncan cement the possibilities of female Motocross athletes competing at World Championships on equal terms as their male counterparts which has been embraced by Europe’s organizers Youthstream under FIM.

This Film Interview on Katherine shows what it took to achieve 2 World Women’s MX Titles in 2006 and 2007.
