This Saturday 20 October sees the final event in the TRP Distributors SA MX National Championships take place at Dirt Bronco, Linley Rd (Viscount Rd) Randfontein in Kurgersdorp. While there are many divisions competing during what is bound to be an exciting day of riding, amongst them High School, Ladies, Pro Mini and Senior Support divisions, as well as well as the highly contested MX2 and MX3 divisions, all eyes will be on the hotly contested premier MX1 division.
Currently leading is Caleb Tennant who has had a good run this year, but this final event is going to go down to the wire with all sorts of pressure on the leader. David Goosen from Durban is champing at the bit right behind him, and wants the win badly. “I’m 16 points out from the lead in MX1 going into the last round, so there’s definitely hope I can make it happen for 2018,” said Goosen. “I’m just going to go in fighting till the final lap and give it my best shot.”
Not to be discounted, third placed Tristan Purdon from the Eastern Cape has an opportunity to jump from third place to a second in the division, and is determined either way for a huge performance at Dirt Bronco. Both Goosen and Purdon have been putting in the extra hours, in preparation for this event, and do not want to let a final big push slip go to waste.
“For me, the goal is to win all 4 heats at this event,” said Purdon. “So, exciting times for the last round.”
