FIM Women’s Motocross World Championship 2021 season opens on July 25th at Loket, MXGP of Czech Republic.

Italian WMX Champion Kiara Fontanesi has amassed 6 Titles starting in 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2017 and 2018. Holding historical record of winning World MX Championship 6x, Kiara has raised the level of WMX to new heights with each career victory.

On and off the track, #8 has steered her racing career in upward trajectory- making every race count, taking challenges as part of the journey, and maintaining that will and determination to race for the win were the results of her own self-belief backed by family support.

To put in perspective, Kiara radiates new-age Motorsport athlete. Passion for racing acts as a display of commitment to advance career, so does hard work to develop talent on and off the bike.

Professionalism has always been ingrained in how Kiara gained leverage to race in global market of fierce competition for slice of economic pie. Key to success was never settling for less than Kiara felt she deserved, in terms of gaining sponsorship, Brand support, products and services within Motorsport industry. All of which sets tone on how WMX riders will evolve over time.

WMX Opening Round 2021 of Loket, will be hugely significant in determining where each rider stands within field and points table. Kiara has raced the hard-pack track in 2010 WMX finishing 8th, taking the win in 2013, 2nd place in 2014 behind Livia Lancelot, 2nd in 2015 and 4th in 2017. The last WMX GP at MXGP of Czech Republic venue was in 2019 where Courtney Duncan scored the victory over Larissa Papenmeier.

So, what do we expect from the Italian ace? Plenty. If there remains one solid fact on what to predict from Kiara, mum of daughter Skyler, it will be un-nerving sense of how Kiara’s wants to develop as a person, athlete, professional rider, mum, and role model.

Personal and professional growth are rare commodities which only come out in all their glory over time. And, after covering Kiara for past years, all those positive character attributes shine brightly for the rest of the world to see- both on the track and track-side.
