Courtney Duncan is a three-time women’s motocross world champion.
Duncan soared to the championship with a third-place finish in the first of two races overnight in Italy.
Her main title rival, six-time world champ Kiara Fontanesi, finished a lowly 15th.
With the championship trophy already hers, Duncan iced the cake with a victory in the season’s last race.
Duncan ends her 2021 campaign with five wins, six other podiums, and only one race where she failed to finish in the top three.
Her final points margin was 31, with Dutch rider Nancy Van De Ven finishing second and Fontanesi third.
“It hasn’t probably really sunk it yet, but it will feel good tomorrow and the days to come.
“It was a good season with good battles, good races and bad races. I just made the best out of every situation this year, fought for every point I could, and it feels great to win a third championship.
“It was nice to end the season with a win and I am going to enjoy it.”
Duncan becomes only the third three-time champion in the competition’s 17-year history.
