NATIONS (MXOAN)

Donnybrook Park in Harare, Zimbabwe, home of the

African Continents favourite year-end MX event, The

Summer Series on 30 August to 1 September 2019.

Donnybrook Park and their team behind this year’s

event are fired up to get Africa’s best riders back

to the Harare track, for another epic edition of this

incredible competition.

Track preparation has been ongoing for the last four

months and Rick Goby (Zimbabwe Motocross) said

that they have gone all out to create an excellent

dirt track that even the World’s best would love to

battle on.

“Our team has been working under a lot of pressure,

understandably, but despite our little challenges here

in Zimbabwe, we are not slowing down, in order to

provide a facility that will make the FIM Africa proud

of our efforts.”, said Goby and he also assured that

all the FIM requirements in

lieu of Environmental and the

Ride Clean campaign are

being adhered to as much as

possible.

Speaking of world class riders,

the seven nations competing

this year, all have just that,

some of the best riders in the

world, and considering that a

number of them have already

been on international duties at

various stages of their careers,

the fight for the all-important

African Nations title is poised

on a the edge of a berm,

about to blow out and provide

the fans watching, some of

the best Motocross action

you can find anywhere in the

world.

South Africa must come

into this event as odds on

favourites, having won the

title the most often, with

only Kenya and Uganda he

only other teams to have

taken the title, since 2009.

However, Zimbabwe and

Botswana also stand a very

good chance for the top spot.

Particularly Zimbabwe, as the

host nation is coming in full

force, to attack the rest on

their home soil.

The event will also be televised, with a postproduction

being put together by the 2 Wheels

TV crew from South Africa, who will put the post

production onto DSTV Ignition Channel 189, as well
