Buggies climax the day:

As if the motocross action is not enough, Bobo will again get into the buggy in an unfinished business with Alistair Blick and Paddy Blick in the Buggy championship.

Last year, he dominated the buggy championship and now all eyes are on him as over ten drivers including Arthur Blick Jr, Hussein Mukuye aka Achilles, the Blick brothers Paddy and Alistair, Musa Nsubuga, Joshua Kato and Ponsiano Lwakataka.

Motocross action:

It will be speed, pace and skills that will determine today’s winners in the fourth round of the Mountain Dew National Motocross championship at Garuga.

The track is set, but the rains that have been on will make it more challenging for the riders and buggy drivers which makes the event more exciting, giving fans the worth of their money.

“Garuga is knowns as a fast track for riders, but the rains have made it more challenging which gives those with skills an edge over others,” ten-time national Champion Arthur Blick jr noted.

In the 50cc class, William Blick Jr. on top of the log with 167points, Pascal Kasozi and Miguel Katende will be renewing the rivalry, as Gift Ssebuguzi, Daryl Muhindo and Kreidah Nsubuga will battle it out in the 65cc class.

After three out of seven rounds, top riders last year seems to be dominating the season, but there are many upcoming ones who are proving to be a threat.

In the MX 1 class, Asaf Natan and former champion Maxime van Pee will battle each in a highly billed race that fans are yearning for but upcoming star Fatuh Kiggundu will give the two tough challenge.

In Busiika last month, Asaf put up a good fight but his fitness levels were wanting having returned from an injury without training.

Maxime leads the standings with 180 points, 78 ahead of Asaf who didn’t compete in the opening round of the championship.

However, before MX1 race, fans will be testimony to a mouth-watering race between the two crowd favourites Ali Omar Yasser popularly known as ‘Bobo’ and Fortune Ssentamu in the MX125cc class.

Omar returns from a two-month injury ready to start collecting maximum points on the championship as his target is a podium finish at the end of the season.

Both bobo and Ssentamu are fighters and fans have for long yearned to witness their race since the latter was promoted to the MX125cc class this season from MX85cc but the former is the defending champion.

UMOSPOC vice president Justin Mungoma and rally driver Grace Lubega of Lubega racing team said,” This is the race we have been waiting for, it is time fans judge who is the fastest among their favourites,”

Ssentamu is 105 points in third position behind second positioned Wazir Omar (141pts) and leader Aviv Orland 177 points who will not be racing because he is in USA formalizing his training program.
