Round 2 Motocross Nationals heads to Cape Town!

We couldn’t have asked for a better season opener of the 2016 Monster Energy TRP Distributors SA National MX Championship in Port Elizabeth. Both fans and competitors expected round one to be interesting but what they got was better then they ever could have anticipated. Not only was the competition in the premier MX1 and MX2 classes on another level, but every single other class offered incredible racing.
Round 2 now heads to the ever popular Zone 7 in Cape Town on 2 April. The competitors enjoy the Zone 7 track and it’s a great venue that always draws large crowds. In the premier MX1 and MX2 classes, it is anyone’s win. The level of talent is so high that there are so many favourites that could easily take the win. It is going to be intense racing at every stop this year. The first round also attracted riders from Zambia, Zimbabwe and Swaziland and we hope to see them all again in Cape Town.

The Championship is sanctioned by Motorsport South Africa (MSA) and brought to you by Motocross South Africa (MX SA) in conjunction with Monster Energy, TRP Distributors, Thor, Bridgestone, FMF, Gaerne, Motul, DC Shoes, Bell Helmets, Rockwell Watches, Racestar Graffix, Pac-Rite, 100%, Fly Racing, Winstel, MMT and Progression. Official vehicle partner is Ford Performance.

Racing will kick off at around 10am. There is catering on site and this is guaranteed to be a great day out for the whole family. Entrance is R50 per adult and free for kids of 12 years and younger.

Zone 7: Van Schoorsdrift Road, Cape Town, Western Cape.

RISE – Caleb Tennant back in the hunt for MX glory

The kid has always been good, but he has been plagued by injuries. So it is appropriate that his new video edit is called, Rise. Caleb will be back at Zone 7 tomorrow to compete in the Mx1 class and judging by the riding in the video, he could just be on top of the podium.

Caleb Tennant hasn’t been seen on the race scene since he finished 3rd in the the MX2 class in 2013. In 2014 Caleb was forced to turn in the towel due to financial setbacks and went to go work full time for his father while saving up to get back on a bike. He missed riding so must that he started making calls to Laren van der Westhuizen, current trainer John Wakefield, Shaun Pautz and Cecil Penny Racing with the help of TLB Monster Energy Yamaha they organised him a ride.
In January 2015 while preparing for the season ahead riding at his home track Zone 7 Caleb suffered a bad crash, with his front wheel collapsing on a table top, cracking ribs and breaking his collar bone putting him out of action for over 2 months. Mid way through March Caleb got back on his bike and started preparing for the 2nd round of the South African Motocross Nationals which is being held in Cape Town. “Id like to thank all my sponsors, mechanic Shaun Pautz, trainer John Wakefield but a special has to go out to Laren van der Westhuizen who pushed me to get back on my bike again. I look forward to racing against the countries best again on Saturday.”

MX alive and well in South Africa – Round 3 in Richards Bay

I got to go down to the MX Nationals in Cape Town was pleasantly surprised to find a really solid crew racing at a well organised event. MX in SA has been languishing somewhat the last few years, but with this new series it seems things are back on the up. The most recent stop was Round 3 at teza, in Richards Bay. The track, built on a guy’s private farm for his son, is almost on the US scale, with massive jumps and a great mix of sand and dirt. The racing looked tight and fast, much like the promo girls! Check out the video and get down to a stop near you to see some proper , filthy MX…
