Courtney Duncan narrowly missed out on the WMX title last year in the final round and the championship leader by 21 points is going to miss out again after injurying her foot.
The Kiwi girl has been advised not to race for fear of doing permanent damage and, according to Josh Coppins who helps Duncan, she will be forced to sit out the remaining two rounds of the championship.

Unfortunately @cduncan151 has had to withdraw from the last two @mxgp @WMX grand prix’s, effectively ending her world title hopes. Coming into this weekends round in Assen, Netherlands holding a 21 point lead things were looking good however after picking up a foot injury & then seeing several doctors it’s been decided it is best for her to sit out the remainder of the season. Naturally she and the team are very disappointed however we would like to thank all our sponsors, supporters and fans of Courtney and team Altherm JCR Yamaha for your support, well wishes and following throughout the 2018 WMX season. @althermwindowsystems #teamaltherm JCR @yamahamotornz @yamaharacingcomofficial @crcindustriesnz #ados @ymf_ymi_aus @blucru_nz @gytr_performance_products @yamalubenz #warddemolition #hollandcollisioncentre #starmoving @foxracingeurope @foxracingnewzealand @workshopgraphics @monsterenergy
