The final round of the SA National Motocross Championship was held in Johannesburg at Terra Topia MX track on the 14 October.
In the competitive MX2 class, it was going to be a very close day with the track being extremely one lined and tight. Heat 1 saw Anthony get off to a good start and fight for the lead at times but decided to ride hard and comfortable to bring it home in 3rd position.
Heat 2, unfortunately started badly for half of the race field. A rider fell on the first corner causing a 10 rider pile up. Anthony was in the mix and had to get his bike out and fight from 15th to 6th by the end of the race. Well fought!
Overall Result: 3 – 6 = 5th overall
With Anthony just returning from London with an injured back and shoulder, he decided to skip the MX1 class and focus 100% on the MX2 class as he was fighting for a podium spot in the national championship in that class.
With this being the last round, Anthony claimed 3rd overall in the MX2 SA National Series even with missing one national to a broken hand. Hopefully we can heal up, train hard and come back strong for the 2018 season! Words from Anthony “I truly can’t thank everyone of you for all the support this year. I have been helped from so many different angles and without it I wouldn’t be out on track living my dream. Thank you for being apart of this incredible journey. I am planning bigger and better things for 2018. I hope we can keep our program going strong and achieve more goals. Thank you!”
Please get in touch with Anthony regarding 2018 plans. Thank you!
