Uganda Motorcross team, Maximee Van Pee, is optimistic Uganda will perform better in Zimbabwe during the FIM Africa motocross championship next month.
Maximee, who had issues with his bike in the first heat and registered a DNF in the MX1 class, was amazed by the skills shown by all riders although others like Liam Ntale, Kylan Wekesa and Fortune Sentamu had their bikes develop mechanical issues during the race.
He lauded riders including Kreidah Nsubuga in the 65CC, Malcom Lubega in the 85 CC and Wazir Ali Omar in the 125 CC adding that it is a sign of maturity and determinations.
” We will now have a big challenge of listing who will be part of team Uganda that will represent us next month because every rider has stepped up their performance,” Maxime said.
“Should parents continue giving their children the best trainings and not forgetting looking at their endurance then surely we will be the team to beat in Zimbabwe during the FIM Africa Nations of Motorcross Championship” added Maxime.
Uganda target winning the Championship that has eluded them since 2012 when they won it on the home turf in Busiika, Luweero district.
Zimbabwe will be hosting the Championship from 30th August to 1st September 2019.
