Round 4 of the SA National Motocross Championship took place this past weekend at Dirt Bronco MX Track in Johannesburg on Saturday, 3 June. The national series hadn’t raced at this venue for the last 3 years so there was a lot of excitement and anticipation in the air.
With MX2 being the first class out on track for practice and qualifying, it was a complete mud show and difficult to put in a clean fast lap. Anthony took the time to learn the track and focus on the races.
Heat 1, holeshot, holeshot, holeshot! Anthony flew out the gates to grab the lead from the start. It was a fast race with the top 4 riders separating from the rest of the field. Anthony made no mistake and remained consistent all throughout the race to come away with top honors! Welcome back Anthony!
Heat 2, it was a fight into a muddy first turn where Anthony came out in 2nd place. The top 3 were running fast consistent lap times with the gap between each rider staying the same. Anthony set his fastest lap time in the last lap of the race trying to hunt down the leader. Another brilliant and strong finish in heat 2!
Overall Result: 1 – 2 = 1st overall
Round 5 will take place in Pietermaritzburg on the 22 July.
