World women’s motocross champion Courtney Duncan is more frequently seen wearing protective gear than a fashion brand.

But this week Palmerston's world two-wheel champion left Dunedin designer Company of Strangers’ store with bags in hand.

Duncan needed an outfit for the Federation Internationale de Motocyclisme world champions awards ceremony in Monaco this weekend.

The outfits are a closely guarded secret. She chose two, and will decide which to wear on the night.

Duncan, who dominated the 2019 WMX season winning all but one race, said a friend referred her to the Dunedin shop and she thought the brands were ‘‘awesome’’.

‘‘Nothing better than representing my home city on the world stage,’’ she said.

A Company of Strangers spokeswoman said they were sworn to secrecy but looked forward to Duncan making a splash.
