Livia Lancelot runner-up in Dutch sand

Livia Lancelot goes to the final round of the FIM World WMX Women's Motocross Championship just three away from the points lead after finishing second in the Dutch round of the series at Assen.

The 29 year-old Team One One Four Kawasaki owner/rider rode two solid races in tough conditions after heavy pre-race rainfall to finish third and second in the two points-scoring races. After an excellent start in the first moto she held second place for three laps and maintained her speed to the finish to take the checkered flag in third place, more than half a minute in front of her closest rival, after only surrendering a place to a Dutch girl who is used to riding in the sandy conditions. Initially fourth in race two Livia remained calm, taking over third place in lap two and eventually moving into second place, headed only by the Dutch girl, two laps from the end of the race. The two powerful rides have seen her close to within three points of the championship pace prior to the final round of the series which will be held at Villars-sous-Ecot in her native France next weekend. The event will be the final race of her illustrious career which she will be hoping to crown with a third world title in front of her home fans.

“We worked a lot since Loket to prepare for this sandy round, and to get a second place here is more than I could expect,” said Lancelot. “I didn’t worry when I saw the rain while I was coming here; I’m used to practicing in tough conditions and I was confident before the race. I got third position on Saturday and today the track was less demanding as the rain stopped but it took me some time to get a good rhythm; after ten minutes I found some good lines and could pass some of my rivals to get this second position. Now we go to the final round in Villars in a good position in the championship; it’s close as we are four girls within five points and I’m happy that the title will be decided there as I love this track and have always been successful at the French events. I will not feel any pressure in Villars, even if the standings are close and there will be many fans coming to this race, which will be the last of my career as I’ve decided to retire from GP racing after this race. As I said after winning my second world title last year, everything I get from now is like a bonus as I have nothing to prove; I will turn 30 next year, I have won world titles, French titles, earned a medal at the X Games. I’m very happy with my career but rest assured that I will give everything next weekend to get another world title!”
