Motocross News
Fontanesi wins home GP, Duncan keeps the red plate


Posted: Monday, 17th April, 2017 : 1:13 PM - - 1,918 Reads




The FIM Women’s Motocross World Championship provided great action for all the fans at Trentino, Italy, throughout the weekend and to the delight of the Italian fans it was Italian Kiara Fontanesi who walked away with the round win.

Saturday’s Race 1 saw MXFonta Yamaha Racing’s Kiara Fontanesi edge out the competition capitalising on the mistake of points leader Altherm JCR Yamaha’s Courtney Duncan. Duncan was later able to fight her way back to 2nd followed by Nancy Van De Ven.



In today’s Race 2 it was a matter of who could make the least mistakes. The #85 Nancy Van De Ven came off the starting grid better than anyone else grabbing the holeshot and leading the early stages. Fontanesi applied pressure to Van De Ven passing her, but a few moments later Fontanesi made a mistake by going down in a corner over a berm. The challenges for Van De Ven continued to grow as Courtney Duncan was next to make a pass.

The #151 bike of Duncan was riding a blistering pace but it was unable to maintain it, going down while leading for the second time this weekend. Nancy Van De Ven also went down in the race but both recovered, Van de Ven to 4th and Duncan to 3rd.


The WMX class head for battle
 
Team One One Four’s Livia Lancelot’s consistency out shined the rest being the only rider in the top 4 and the only rider to lead who did not fall in Race 2. Her riding was much improved from Saturday and her shining performance gave her a well deserved Race 2 win.

One other rider who did well in Race 2 was the Italian Francesca Nocera who finished in 5th place in front of her home crowd. Even though she finished 18th in Race 1 her stellar rebound in Race 2 gave her the final spot in the top ten.

For the overall podium Kiara Fontanesi’s 1-2 finish was the best of anyone, she was followed by a frustrated Courtney Duncan who finished 2-3 and the final spot on the podium went to Livia Lancelot after fighting her way back into contention with a 5-1 result. Nancy Van De Ven took 4th overall and Larissa Papenmeier took the last of top 5 finish positions.
