Round 6 of the 2016 SA National Motocross Championship took place in Harrismith on Saturday, 17 September. Freezing temperatures, heavy wind and tight racing was the call of the day.

MX1
Heat 1, Anthony rocketed off the start line to grab the holeshot and lead the strong field around the track on lap 1. Anthony put his head down and put in fast, consistent lap times to win the first heat by 15 seconds.
Heat 2, another smooth fast start saw Anthony grab 2nd place in the start corner and settle in a comfortable spot. Unfortunately on lap 3, the unthinkable happened… Anthony was coming through a fast section of the track and his bike bounced skew causing to go have a hard crash. Anthony got up right a way but he remounted in 5th place and with his bike being bent and broken he had to settle in that position. With the bad second heat, the first heat helped to score a good overall for the day.
FINAL RESULT MX1: 1-5 = 2nd overall

MX2
Both MX2 heat races were really good for Anthony, however the results didn’t show for the quality of his riding on the day. Anthony set the fastest lap times in both races by over 1 second , but bad starts made life difficult for Anthony on the tight and twisty Harrismith circuit. 
FINAL RESULT MX2: 4-4 = 3rd overall

Anthony is in 2nd place in the MX1 and MX2 SA National Championships. Going into the final round in 2 weeks, Anthony is putting in everything he can to fight for the top spots in both classes.
