The gutsy NZ’der showed the patriotic French crowd how determined she is by pulling the Race 2 win, over home queen favourite Livia Lancelot (Team One One Four Kawasaki) who took the Round 3 Overall standing proud on the top step of the podium.

Italian Kiara Fontanesi (MX FontaRacing Yamaha) kept safe, consistent and secured her position for 3rd place with Dutch star Nancy Van de Ven holding 2nd in Round 3 of 6 in the WMX 2017 Series.

Fontanesi made firm her contention for WMX Title cementing the Round 2 Overall win at Trentino to put the Italian one point ahead of French rider Livia Lancelot today.

Fontanesi holds the Red Plate heading into Round 4 at Loket, Czech Republic on July 23rd.
