Here is a reprint of a post I saw on KTM Talk. This is a blow by blow of a New Zealand MX round from Feb 12. I think Courtney is 16 or 17? No powder puff class for her! Teaches all the boys a lesson!


Senior 125cc Class:

Pre-event the ?talk? had been as to how Courtney Duncan would go in the all male class now that she was a Senior.

125s were the first out for Practice/Qualifying and Courtney went 3.4 seconds faster than anybody else in the class.
Racing?s racing and they did not wait long for the answer.
Of the 28 entered - 6 did not make the 115% of the Top 12 rule.

Moto1: Courtney won by a whopping 35 secs from Hadleigh Knight (who had started 6th) and 8 back to Logan Blackburn, who had led laps 2 and 3.
Aiden Kiff had a huge one crashing out of the event in the 9th lap and it was a long-time before the Medics got to him.

Moto2 and Hadleigh Knight started but crashed out and hurt his wrist. Strange that he doesn't show in the timing. His Mum says he will have it X-rayed in Taupo.
Courtney also went down in the holeshot corner and she was down in 20th losing over a minute to the leaders. She set about moving up through the field lap-by-lap and this is her lap-chart. She had the fastest lap by 3 secs and went on to finish 2nd, 22 secs behind Cameron Vaughan, but 4 secs ahead of Logan Blackburn.

Moto3 and Courtney led for two laps but went down and dropped two places where she stayed.
Vaughan won it by 2.5 secs to Blackburn with 3.9 to Duncan.

The ?gossip? was Courtney Duncan is now off to the States to ride the amateur majors under the JGR MX banner.
I asked JGR MX's media man David Evans, who is based in North Carolina, if he could expound and he said; "I haven?t heard anything on Courtney, but I am not too involved in our amateur side so that doesn?t mean much. Thank you for sharing that Ben is OK, I was worried about him and have heard very little about the crash here in the U.S. Glad to hear Coops is doing well, we enjoyed his time with us.?

Courtney has since responded to my question and said; "I don't think I'm racing for their team. They just did me a race motor that's all.?

Overall;
Courtney Duncan 67
Cameron Vaughan 64
Logan Blackburn 62
Cohen Chase 50
Cam Negus 45


Duncan had the 12th fastest time of the day out of all classes.

Just turned 16.
Don't think she is going to do any more wmx. Just too quick.
Heard she won't be doing anymore NZ rounds as she is off overseas.
Not sure where.

If you don't fall off you are not going hard enough

She is a demon and an amazing race head on her as well ,if seen her torment some pretty fast riders and then blitz away,some of the local mxs she has had laptimes 1 or 2secs slower than the pro guys on 450s and 250s and this was on a 85 so future champ in the making hope she does well in the us

Sixteen you say? Anyone haz pictures? :D

Seriously though, this is why I say have WMX and mx is stupid and I'm fairly certain theres a decent legal case against it in the aus constitution somewhere. its a different matter in terms of cricket, soccer, rugby but with MX its rider skill and determination that takes the podium.

Anyways go her, with 1 and 2 seconds slower than pros on full sized mxers on an 85, shes well on her way to champion.

This is her first year on a 125 and she won the first round easy.
Against the boys/men.
I just hope they find the funds to run in the US/Euro where ever they are going.
