Riders primed for regional championship


NAIROBI, Kenya, August 13 – Cruze Muigai, Shivam Vinayak and Ivan Guya will be at the forefront of Kenya’s challenge at the second round of this month’s regional Africa Motorcycle Union (AMU) Motocross championships.

MOTOCROSS_Vinayak leads the MX1 category  at which he has remained unchallenged both at home and within the region

The same can be said for Muigai who is expected to call shots in the MX2 class, formerly  the 125cc category.

Muigai was a real crowd puller at Garuga with stunning jumps that mesmerized the Ugandan crowd

Ivan Guya who made his comeback after a leg injury leads the MX85 after he beat Ugandan Yannick Duyck to second overall slot.

If Guya doesn’t compete in the AMU, then the Kenya assault will be led by Eugene Maina and Adhil Khan who lead the local series. Khan settled for third overall on 47 points behind Ugandan Duyck.

In the MX65, Kenya’s leader Apollo Mbuki will also be seeking to gain impressive ground at home after mechanical problems restricted him to third place in Kampala.

Fatuh Kigundu of Uganda leads the MX65 followed by Eduardo Bosi of Uganda and Sameer Anwar.

Tanzanians who skipped the Uganda meeting, will send 5 riders including Sarah Bjerre at MX 85 and Rebekka Bjerre at MX2.
