The 2016 Monster Energy TRP Distributors South African National Motocross Championships

Posted on July 4, 2016 at 4:30 AM

Syringa - Round 4 of the SA National MX Champs, the first event held at Syringa Park since its owner was tragically killed early this year, took place on Saturday 2 July and was a massive success.



After a little winter chill in the morning, the day soon warmed up over a fast and unforgiving track. It was hard-pack and technical and resulted in some of the best racing of the season, as well as some minor spills.



Sacha Naude was on fire in MX1, and pulled a huge lead in the 2nd heat, while stand out rider of the day in the premier classes was David Goosen. He was also on the podium in MX1 but entered for the first time in MX2 and took the win in that division. He was followed by a recently on-form Kerim Fitzgerald, with Anthony Raynard in third.


The MX3 division saw the return of Ryan Hunt to the winner's podium. He placed ahead of Ian Topliss in second, while Brett Bircher came in third.



In the ladies division there was an encouraging 10 ladies who entered, and it was Nanda Clowes who edged ahead of the perennial Brittany Cuthbert, with Kayla Raaff in third.



In the 50cc class Neil van der Vyver was in top form and edged out Jordan Dewdney into second, with Jordan Van Wyk in third.



It was a combined regional and national event, with a total of 184 entries. The track manager Grant Foley put on an excellent effort, and the day was a huge success.


The next event in the Monster Energy TRP Distributors SA National MX Champs is set to take place at Thunder Valley, Maritzburg, KZN on the 6 August. For more information go to the SAMX events page here -
