Duncan, 21, pulled off a second place finish in the first race, with a third place finish coming in the second race yesterday.

"I put myself in good positions in both the races. I was in the lead halfway through each race and made a silly mistake in both of them which cost me dearly," Duncan said.

"The speed was really good and I still have the red plate [for the WMX points lead]. I have six weeks before the next round to learn and get better and hopefully come back swinging and in fine form for France."

Duncan holds a six point lead over Kiara Fontanesi at the top of the Championship, after taking out a win in the first event of the season in Indonesia.
