Last Sunday, the association held the fifth round of the Gozo Motocross Championship 2021 fuelled by Enemed which turned out to be a remarkable full day of racing today at Ta' Xhajma Motocross Track!
A total of 22 riders, including two females, participated in last Sunday's Round 5 as challenge after challenge took place in each of the 18 races organized by the association.
Here's a recap of the day.
In Class A, reigning champion Steve Xuereb has proven once again that he is one to beat, as for another time he took maximum points of the day, finishing first in all the three heats. It was a challenging day for Mario Cauchi as he finished third place in all the heats following numerous mistakes made during races, however he still kept his second place overall in his class. Rider David Dimech has also shown great skill, finishing second in each heat.
Robert Spiteri stole the show in Class B as for the first time ever this season, he finished first place on the day following several mistakes made by class leader Jorn Stellini in the first and second heats of the day. Spiteri took maximum points in the first two heats however Stellini came back strong in the third heat and took back his usual first place position. At the end of the day, Spiteri gained enough points to be crowned winner of Class B, followed by Jorn Stellini and Matthew Zammit in third.
Class C was led by Jurgen Attard, who took back his first place after finishing second and third in the last two rounds. Mark Camilleri followed in second place with Steve Cassar and Anthony Fenech following behind.
Luke Caruana once again took first place in Class D with father Paul Caruana, Chris Tyler Mizzi, female rider Emma Xuereb and Scott Donovan following behind.
A special Enduro Class was organised for visiting riders with Clyden Formosa taking first place, Joseph Gauci second and Samuel Gauci in third.
Last but not least, the highlight of the day was once again the Junior Class with young riders Zac Tabone, Trysten Theuma, Luka Haber and Milos Schembri. Following a set of three heats, the 6 to 11 year old riders surely captured the moment.
GMA training coach, Scott Donovan, presented trophies sponsored by Grima Service Station and Grima Fuel Supplies, to all winners of the day.
The quarter final of the Championship will take place on 7th March 2021.
