Keagan wins club championship

THE Border Motocross Club Championship came to a “fantastic” end at the Border Motocross track on Saturday.

We thank the riders who joined us from PE for their support in this last event of the year.

“Our little riders and the new cute novice ones rode very well and loved the prize-giving,” Sharon Hanekom said.

Visiting rider, Liam Botha, pulled out all the stops in the 65cc class with Keagan Hanekom, close on his heels. Keagan gets the points because he is a club member.

The 85cc race was won by Chase Hanekom. The overall club championship went to a much-deserved rider Keagan

“It is great to see the ladies entering at this level, and it was a pity that Savannah van Vuuren was out for the day due to an fmx [freestyle motocross] injury,” Sharon said.

Breece Romans won the Pro Mini class and the most exciting part of this race was the fight between Jayden Bruce Alexander and Kyle Philips, with Jayden taking second place and receiving the Zane Howard trophy.

For the 125cc class riding with the men was the club’s young lady rider Kylie Kotze who took first place in the event.

In the MX3 class Anton Bezuidenhout took the overall win.

In MX2, there was some exciting racing between Swann and Riley Naude with the club’s local enduro rider Michael Swann ending winner of the day.

In MX1 it was a challenge for David Canning who pushed hard to defend his 2016 Championship; unfortunately he could only manage third place and second overall in the championship.

A special memorial lap was held for Howard and Jean Tiran known as Grandpa and Dad, they are truly missed and will always be remembered as legends.
