Team Bike IT MTX Kawasaki heads to Loket this weekend to compete in the opening round of the WMX MXGP Championship, and is aiming to make it a reply of her 2019 double win.
The Double WMX World Champion partnered up with Steve Dixon and Kawasaki in 2019, which we have seen her claim two world championship titles under the Bike IT MTX umbrella.
The Kiwi has also emphatically underlined the continued quality and competitiveness of the Kawasaki range as she has raced to many of her victories during the second half of each season riding an out of the crate KX250 straight off the following year’s production line.
Speaking about her championship hopes Courtney said “It plays on your mind a little bit, and obviously we want to go for the three. But I just want to come and give it the best I’ve got, just the same as though I was going for my first title or my tenth. I still have the same mentality. I want to bring my A game, to do my best and to leave it all on the track.”
“It seems a long time since I was last here. But the off-season was good. I got to have some time with friends and family and got some good preparation. The tracks were really good back home in New Zealand. I’ve been back in Belgium for a couple of weeks and have been able to go out practising with my mechanic George.”
