Central Otago Mountain Cycle Club is again offering you the chance to see Courtney Duncan, the world number one woman rider, in action in Cromwell.
The event, 2021 Contrax King of Central, will be held on Sunday, 9 May, at the Cromwell MX track on Bannockburn Road.
Last year, the competition attracted over 200 entries, from first-time riders to Courtney. She is back this year to support the club and ride for the King of Central title. Growing up in Palmerston, and now Dunedin-based, this gritty motor cross phenomenon won her second consecutive women’s motor cross championship (WMX) in Italy last November, after a gruelling time amid covid restrictions.
The track has been closed since 23 April for maintenance and track preparation for this major event.
Club Secretary, Shelley Cornish, expressed the club’s gratitude to their main sponsor, Contrax Central, saying,
“They have been an amazing sponsor, supplying the use of machinery for track work in preparation for the event.”
From the number of entries received so far, the club is anticipating this year’s riders to outnumber the 2020 event. It’s a whole day of exciting competition for both riders and spectators. So go along and support our Central Otago riders, and watch our very own Kiwi champion in action.
