The 2016 FIM Africa, Central Motocross Championship(CAC) ended with Uganda emerging champions.

The second and final round took place over the weekend at Jamhuri race track in Nairobi, Kenya.

Uganda unexpectedly secured the CAC title despite a fewer number of riders assembled for the final round. Eighteen riders represented Uganda.

With a 676 points advantage from CAC first round, Uganda’s hopes immediately came under threat as Kenya dominated the first heat on Saturday.

But a resilient push on Sunday helped Uganda secure 582 points while Kenya picked 1218 points.

Team Uganda however managed to win with a 40 points advantage to register a fifth regional MX title.

On top of the overall win was Maxime Van Pee’s regional MX1 title hatrick after he won the class yet again.

Aviv Orland, Barak Orland and Miguel Katende also spiced up the celebrations with wins in the MX85, Vets class and 50peewee respectively.
