MX Star Takes Second World Title

Auckland teen Katherine Prumm has won her second consecutive women’s motocross world title at the series final in the Netherlands. The 19-year-old rider dominated the final day of the competition, beating Kawasaki team-mates Livia Lancelot (France) and Maria Franke to take her place on top of the podium. “I was very relaxed all week and the bike ran like clockwork,” said Prumm. “It’s fantastic to hear the New Zealand national anthem play when you’re on the other side of the world.”
