Twenty two riders are officially set to fight for the FIM Africa, Central Africa Motocross championship title in Kenya. The second round of CAC revs off this weekend on 10th-11th at Jamhuri race track in Kenya’s capital Nairobi.
The team was flagged off this afternoon at Lugogo by the General Secretary of National Council of Sports Nicholas Muramagi. “I would like to appreciate the Federation for steering up the competition not only in the country but even beyond. And the motocross has done a great job representing Uganda outside,” said Muramagi.
NCS boosted the MX team with 5 million shillings to carter for transporting the bikes to and from Kenya. “After their great performance in Kenya we pledged to come out with something on this event, and this is just less to what we expect to support Motocross with,” asserts Muramagi.
Team captain Maxime Van Pee is confident Uganda will come out winners. “Our target is always victory, and we are going for it in Kenya. Regardless of the small number, we shall do our best to have the regional title,” he said.
We shall dedicate our performance to the late Maj Kiggundu whose absence really affected our team. We shall do this for him.
Meanwhile, the CAC will have only Uganda and Kenya battling out after other countries went down on Motocross championships.
