Our RADmoto team head out to Matatiele in KZN for possibly one of the hardest races on our Junior national Enduro calender. The scenery was amazing but the terrain brutal and our juniors navigator’d it like Pro’s.
We had four racers line up on the starting grid:
Mackenzie Bam on her 50cc race bike came in 2nd on the Saturday and 1st on the Sunday. Reece Lodeweick racing in the 65 cc club class found that consistency was key and put in two 7th place finishes for both days.
Matthew Stevens raced both the 65cc IPC and the 85 Snr’s. He to found consistency in the narly terrain, getting two firsts in the 65cc and on his furrow in the big bikes a 13th on the 85. Dumel Du Plessis pulled a 5th and a 4th out the bag in a packed class.
The Junior National Enduro standings for the weekend, had Mathew top of his class, Reece and Mckenzie both in second in their respective classes and Dumel in 3rd.
While they were getting dirty, Joss Alexander who is recovering from an injury and will be out for a little while, was there to lend support and even marshal with his Dad Charles.
Kieran Brown our 125 rider is training for extreme enduro’s and is currently down in KZN on a training camp.
Caydian Van der Spuy who also is recovering from an injury but it up for the next race, worked on his fitness to be race ready when he climbs on to the bike!
Lady luck was also on our riders side as Mackenzie won a motorcycle and Dumel won R10 000 in the luck draw. They definitely deserved the prizes! Proud doesn’t even begin to describe what we are at RADMoto. The dedication and determination of each of our riders, be it on the bike or off, makes us appreciate our team.
Thank you to the parents who had the heavy lifting jobs and are our unsung hero’s. Thank you to T-bone racing, parents and Juli-Anne Joubert for the pictures.
