Women’s MX cup world champion, Katherine Prumm, has a busy scheduled ahead of her. The Yamaha Van Beers racer has also confirmed her participation in the Flanders trophy to be held on Sunday 4 May in Tongeren, Belgium.
The 19-year-old New Zealander, will also attempt to make history by being the first woman to qualify for a Dutch championship when she takes part in the Jumbo MX2 Dutch championship on 1 May in Rhenen in the Netherlands.
Both these events are seen as good preparation for the opening round of the Women’s FIM world championship which will kick off in Bulgaria in less than two weeks time and Prumm intends to make the most out of racing against some of the best MX2 men racers in the world.
“I'm excited to be racing in Tongeren and hope to learn a lot from racing in the Inters MX2.” commented the Kiwi. “The competition will be some of the toughest I have faced and I am using it as training and for learning. The hard-pack surface will be good preparation for Bulgaria. I have no expectations of where I will finish as I have not competed in the Belgium Championships before. My goal is to learn a lot and be out there giving it my best. If I give 110% then I will be happy and hopefully I can do well against the men."
