With the new race format putting WMX on Saturday and MX2 on Sunday, all eyes were on Courtney Duncan as she returned to defend her crown as current 2x World Champion. The pressure was kicking in, but the day started perfectly with a pole position. This set Courtney up for the day, as she began race 1 with a great holeshot, and eventually extended her race lead to 22 seconds before claiming the chequered flag. Another good start in race 2 put Duncan up at the front, and an aggressive pass early on gave her the vision she needed to get the job done. A perfectly executed 1-1-1 begins the WMX Championship for the DRT squad, claiming the full 50 points. 

With Taylor out for the foreseeable future, the #20 flies the flag in the MX2 category. Despite being his first time at Loket, a unique and technical track, Todd secured a solid 8th position in qualifying. This set him up nicely for race one, where an impressive start on the Kawaski KX250 propelled him to second, but still lacking in the front of the pack intensity, dropped back and eventually finished in 7th. In race two it was a mid-pack start, and slowly working through to eventually finish in 11th, giving him another top 10 GP finish, and retaining his 12th position in the championship standings.

The team will now head to the notorious sands of Lommel for round 6.
