    A frantic final day has seen Courtney Duncan walk away with another motocross world title

    A frantic final day has seen Courtney Duncan walk away with another motocross world title


    The Kiwi started the season-finale in Northern Italy four points off championship leader, Dutchwoman Nancy Van De Ven.

    The 24-year-old won the first of two races, and finished third in the second, while Van De Ven managed just one podium finish - a win in race two

    That saw the pair finish level on points.

    However Duncan's claimed the silverware, having won more races throughout the season.
