Maddy Malan and Triston Purdon

battling it out in the MX1 class.

But there was drama for Young in race 2 as he hit trouble

and left du Toit to the win from Petersen, Grundy,

Mynhardt, and Hayden Tully (Yamaha).

That means that du Toit now leads that title chase by

three points from erstwhile leader Young.

Emmanuel Bako (KTM) made no mistakes in the

85cc Junior as he stormed to a double win over Seth

Young (KTM), Timo Maximo Toepfer (KTM) and Deegan

Bloomfield (Husqvarna) each time while Joshua Fletcher

(Yamaha) and Pieter Brink (KTM) shared fifth and sixth


That means that Bako closed Young’s title lead down

to 14 points and sits just a point behind second placed

Bloomfield in that title chase.

There was a turn-up in the books in 65cc MX as local

lads Jordan Van Wyk (Husqvarna) and Trey Cox (KTM) put

one over Capetonian championship leader Neil van der

Vyver (Q4 Fuels Husqvarna) with Liam Botha (Husqvarna)

third each time, while KTM pair Thor Johnson and Damon

Garrell tied on points in fifth for the day.

That saw van Wyk close his title deficit down to van

der Vyver 25 points with Cox a further eight adrift.

Cape 50cc baby motocross kids, race 1 winner Jake van

Schoor and double second place lad Ethan Williamson

ended up on equal points for the day after race 1 winner

Brody Bircher (KTM) found trouble in moto 2.

Logan Van Vuuren (KTM) was third both times ahead

of local lad Evan Frost (KTM) who delivered his best

result of the season ahead of Trent Valsecchi (KTM) and

Chase Bekker (Husqvarna). That leaves Williamson in a

14-point title advantage over van Schoor.

The 2019 South African National Motocross

Championship now heads to its penultimate appointment

in the city of Welkom with one or two champions likely

to be crowned in the Free State, while others are clearly

going all the way down to the line.
