WMX Maggiora: Brave Lynn Valk gets on the top step of the podium


The WMX fifth Round in Italy for the FIM Women’s Motocross World Championship at historic Maggiora delivered another intense and competitive racing mixed with tough conditions for all the WMX riders.

Despite all of these factors Schmicker Racing’s Lynn Valk rose to the occasion to win the one race round and her first overall of the season at the same time.

Fontanesi got a well-deserved 2nd overall place to get acclaimed by the home fans on the podium. Guillen showed once again why she is right in the mix for the Championship with another podium. She also closes the gap with Van Drunen in the series to 3 points following the Dutch 6th place-finish.

Lynn Valk: “It was definitely a good weekend for me. Today I took a good start. It was difficult to pass but Kiara (Fontanesi) was riding very well and pushed me from the back as well as Larissa (Papenmeier). There was a good clean line and the uphill was tough so I’m so happy to have won. My brother won last week*and now it’s me so I’m super happy and want to thank my team Schmicker Racing, my family as they do everything for me and my sponsors”

*Her brother Cas Valk won the EMX250 overall in Latvia
