The rain continues throughout Europe for the fifth round of the Women`s World Motocross Championship.
A muddy Slovenian track at Orehova Vas still played host to some fantastic racing from the very best female motocross racers in the world.
British fans were treated to a first moto win by KTM mounted Natalie Kane who has been threatening this result all season, however, in the worsening conditions she could not match the pace of Yamaha`s Chiara Fontanesi who once again snatched the second moto win and the overall.
Buildbase Honda racer and fast improving Danni Marsh pushed hard for her best ever GP result with a 14th in race one and 20th in race two.
Danni Marsh – “I was really disappointed with my performance in Croatia last week. Just before I left I did some track work with Dave (Thorpe) and went into the weekend full of confidence. My lap times were much better and although I crashed out of both moto`s, I was going fast enough to have finished in the top 15. I managed to carry that confidence into this weekend.
I was really happy and although it rained non-stop with thunder storms and everything, I was up to 9th in the first moto but it was red-flagged and they took the result from the last full lap but I finished with a good 14th. I was well up in race two when I got mud in my eye and had to slow down but still managed a 20th.
It was a long way to go but well worth the trip”.
