The fourth round of the Yamaha Gozo Motocross Association Championship took place on Sunday at Ta’ Xhajma Track.
It was a great afternoon of racing for fans and motocross enthusiasts, who had the opportunity to watch Gozitan and Maltese riders take part in the most challenging and determined races of the season so far.
In Class A, nine riders participated in one of the most challenging events ever. Nothing was truly determined until the very end.
All of the riders put on an incredible show of motocross racing. Unfortunately Joseph Bigeni had bike trouble so he had to opt out of the races.Malta champion Clayton Camilleri came in third, while David Dimech won second place. Camilleri’s younger brother Kyle, won this category, while Steve Xuereb placed fourth just 1 point behind Camilleri.
Etienne Bigeni, Stefan Dimech, Robert Spiteri and Keith Bugeja dazed the audience with their incredible stamina and determination.
Class B was just as challenging with Nataniel Camilleri on his Yamaha YZ 250cc acquiring maximum points followed closely by Matthew Zammit and Jorn Stellini respectively. Maltese veteran rider, Lewis Debono also joined this category.
In Class C, Anthony Fenech did very well, he was followed by Mark Camilleri who was 5 points behind. Matthew Spiteri showed great determination in his bid to place well, achieving third in this class, while Raymond Caruana, Steve Cassar and Emma Xuereb continued to pursue their competitors.
