Kawasaki New Zealand proudly welcomes Otago’s Courtney Duncan to the Team Green stable, in time to compete in the 2019 FIM Womens MXGP!
Shane Verhoeven, Managing Director for Kawasaki New Zealand says “Courtney Duncan has been in the running for the Womens MXGP title for the past three years. Now signing with Bike It DRT Kawasaki Race Team for 2019 we are excited to see what she can do”
Courtney Duncan: “I’m stoked to announce my signing with the Bike It DRT Kawasaki race team. They’ve given me an awesome opportunity and I’m very motivated to put them on top in 2019. A fresh start is what I needed and I couldn’t be more excited than to do that with Kawasaki. Kawasaki New Zealand have also come on board to support me at home, for which I am also very thankful.”
Kawasaki is excited to be the brand that now supports Courtney Duncan with her dream and ambition to become the next Kiwi World Champion!
Courtney says “I’m very excited to have made the switch to Kawasaki and I’m looking forward to a great season together.
I’d like to say a big thank you to everyone who made this happen. Bring on 2019”
Courtney will contest the opening round in Valkenswaard, Netherlands, on the 31st March riding the Kawasaki KX250.
It will be exciting for NZ Motocross to see a lot more of Courtney racing and competing in New Zealand between her GP’s in Europe. We wish her the best of luck.
