Bike It MTX Kawasaki rider Courtney Duncan took the double victory at Loket for the opening FIM World WMX Women’s Motocross Championship round.
Following on from her last championship season in 2020 where the Kiwi dominated the championship, Duncan followed with two storming wins.
“I think we can be happy with today. You can’t ask for more, two good starts, two clean rides, two wins. The track was technical and slick in spots and it was difficult to find a flow at times but I rode smooth and smart.”
“We made a couple of small changes to the settings this morning after free practice but my KX250 worked perfectly all day. I pulled a cool holeshot in race one, I’m stoked about that I didn’t do that many times in my career. After that I just rode smooth, in fact I almost felt slow, but I didn’t want to take any risks because it’s a dry day and the square-edged bumps were coming out.”
“I made a pretty good start again in race two. I wanted clear vision so I made an aggressive pass on the first lap and just managed it from there in. I made a silly mistake a couple of laps from the end, that freaked me out but I settled down again quickly. My thanks to Kawasaki, my team and my sponsors for their support. I couldn’t do it without them.”
