Women's World MX Leader Prumm Injured
Kiwi Katherine Prumm leads the points standings but she will not be able to race in Teutschenthal due to a broken left collarbone. Runner up Livia Lancelot will try to take back the red plate.
With the Kiwi out, GPKR’s Livia Lancelot aims at taking back the red plate which she lost in France; though the first five riders in the Championship are spread in only 22 points and it will be a hard fought season finale from Germany to the final round in Lierop.
The latter is sixth in the Championship as she missed one heat due to a foot injury; Papenmeier rode strong and won at Teutschenthal in 2007, the year of her breakthrough.
Elin Mann, Elien de Winter, Marianne Veenstra and Nicky van Wordragen round off the top ten.
TALKESSEL AND TEUTSCHENTHAL
The Talkessel race track in Teutschenthal is one of the most important courses in the country; this hard pack circuit underwent a few changes last year, with the ground becoming slightly softer as sand was added to the hard base. The twisty layout features many undulations which make it very spectacular from a racing point of view. Last year some showers affected the whole Sunday.
