Bloem 2017 - Eric Palmer
2017 SA Motocross Nationals – Bloemfontein Race Report
Round 3 of the SA National Motocross Championship took place in Bloemfontein on Saturday, 6 May. After being on the sidelines for 6 weeks with a broken hand, Anthony was excited to get back on track and racing. It wasn’t going to be an easy task with his hand still healing and very tender.

Heat 1, Anthony fought hard all race to come from the back of the pack in the start to finish in a well deserved 3rd place.
Heat 2, the top 4 riders were like a freight train for most of the race with Anthony in 4th. Unfortunately with 5 minutes of the race to go, the injured hand of Anthony started bleeding and paining. Anthony tried his best but lost two positions in the process.
Overall Result: 3 – 6 = 5th overall

Heat 1 and 2 were frustrating races for Anthony. Bike problems saw Anthony get out the start gate in both races way at the back of the field. He had to work his way through the field and fight for a top 5 finish. Onwards and upwards!
Overall Result: 5 – 6 = 6th overall

Anthony says, “Thank you to each and everyone that plays a vital role in making my racing possible. I will keep charging on for the rest of the SA season.”

Round 4 will take place in Johannesburg on the 3 June.
