Livia Lancelot Wins Her Home Round in the France WMX

Day 2 of the MXGP of France began with the FIM Women’s Motocross World Championship Race 2 where Livia Lancelot was able to give herself and the French fans something to cheer about with her performance and her first overall of the year.
Both the WMX races were epic with several lead changes and battles abound. In Race 1 MXFonta Racing’s Kiara Fontanesi had the lead with a lap and a half remaining but she fell on the uphill and lost out to Nancy Van de Ven, Livia Lancelot, and several other riders. With one lap to go and Van de Ven in the lead Lancelot charged to the front, passed Van de Ven, and won Race 1 in an epic fashion in front of the roaring French fans.
Larissa Papenmeier rallied her way into 3rd just ahead of Fontanesi. The last spot in the top 5 of Race 1 went to the German rider, Stephanie Laier.
Livia Lancelot took the Holeshot but she was quickly passed by Nancy Van De Ven on the first jump. After Duncan’s pass on Lancelot it was a game of cat and mouse for the lead but Lancelot knew she had the overall and wisely settled for second.
Kiara Fontanesi started in a similar position as Duncan but didn’t move forward as quickly. On lap 4 Duncan passed Van De Ven for 3rd, the pair remained 3rd and 4th through to the finish. 5th was taken by Papenmeier and 6th was Sara Andersen.
Overall on the weekend Lancelot’s 1-2 prevailed and the 47 championship points earned have her only 1 point of the lead of Fontanesi. Van De Ven’s 2-4 took second, Fontanesi’s 4-3 took third, and the final spots in the top five went to the consistent Papenmeier and Andersen.
