Livia Lancelot took her Team 114 Kawasaki to yet another podium in the second round of the FIM Women World Motocross Championship in the southern Netherlands to remain second in the series standings.

After a disappointing start to the weekend as she finished fourth in the timed qualification session Livia had to advance out of the pack until she was battling for a podium result, eventually finishing third after a hard-fought battle. More focused on day two for the deciding moto she remained calm, profiting from the mistake of two rivals to finish a determined runner-up. The combined results of the two motos at the sandy Valkenswaard circuit gave her second overall in the GP of Europe and help Livia to retain second place in the world series standings, just seven points behind the series leader with five rounds remaining.

Livia Lancelot:
“I was very unhappy after the first race on Sunday, as I made too many mistakes; I was not focused enough on myself and was looking too much at the other riders. I didn’t follow my usual strategy; for sure I got a podium result but normally it would have been a second and not a third position. Today was much better, I had a better jump from the gate and was fourth in the first few corners; I rode my own race, didn’t look at the other girls and finally two of them made mistakes. When I was second I remained focused on myself and to get another podium is good for the championship; I didn’t lose too many points to Duncan and for sure this year it will be important to be consistent as we are four girls racing for the title. I’m older than the others and have more racing experience so I will try to be clever all the way to the final GP and of course I will continue to work hard as my rivals are fast on all the tracks.”
