From Team Pepson Plastics Husqvarna racing: “I’d say that was a pretty positive weekend for Pepson Plastics Husqvarna Racing,” Husqvarna Motorcycles South Africa brand manager Fred Fensham concluded. “We never struck any gold in the Tugela River Valley, but both our riders scored well to see William Oosthuizen into the championship lead, while young Matthew Green delivered his best result so far, so we head into the second half of the SA enduro season on a strong footing.” Born as a training race to test riders on their path to the rocky mountains of Roof of Africa, the riders now express that the Roof may be better served as a tester for IMPI…. From Team Yamaha: “We are very pleased with the performance from both our riders, and team. Both of our riders took the top step of the podium in the E1 and E2 classes respectively, and we managed to clinch the manufacturers win too. This round proved to be a key point in the championship as it put both of our riders back into title contention after a difficult start to the season. We look forward to the Umzumbe rounds where we hope to continue with our positive momentum.”
