In what must be described as a bittersweet moment, Duncan not only blitzed the World Women’s field leading 13 of 13 laps and pulling a win margin of 35 seconds but she also had to acknowledge the Overall WMX winner Livia Lancelot who wrapped up the 2016 WMX Title with a Race to spare.

Courtney’s Race 1 victory says plenty: from winning the Opening Round in Qatar, to sustaining an injury in Round 3, to being side-lined for Rounds 4 and 5, to back on the podium in Round 6 to winning Race 1 in Round 7.

More remarkable is the commanding pace Duncan set up front, pulling 50.555km/h in Lap 2 which would place her 9th in MX2 class against the men.

Under the close guidance of former 2x Vice World Motocross Champion Josh Coppins, Courtney has no doubt amped up the competition in the World Women’s MX class, gaining much deserved recognition that Women are equally formidable MX racers as their male counter-parts.

With Race 2 tomorrow, Duncan will be putting all her focus on finishing her debut season on a high, putting all future bets on the line that she is a real contester for WMX Title in 2017.

Report: Day 2 to follow.
