Brother Leader Tread KTM’s Bradley Cox and Charan Moore have officially been crowned 2020 National Cross Country champions. The riders received top honours in KwaZulu-Natal this weekend as the series ended with an exciting double-header round in Mid-Illovo. The victory marked a significant milestone for Moore who snatched up the first OR1 national title of his career. Having only been recruited by the team at the start of the 2020 season, the rider has bolstered his status as one of the front runners in this sport.
“I put everything I had into this championship. This KTM family and team made it all the sweeter! Thank you all for helping make this possible,” said an elated Moore.
Brother Leader Tread KTM teammate Bradley Cox stormed to national OR3 glory for the second time in his career. Drawing on the inspiration of his father and racing legend Alfie Cox, the young multi-disciplined talent has been determined to make a name for himself in all facets of South African motorsport.
With his sights set on dreams as big as racing the Dakar Rally in the near future, the victory this weekend was an important steppingstone for Cox.
“It takes a village to make this dream happen – thanks to everyone who has been a part of my circle! Hours and hours of hard work goes into this and to see it payoff is always so rewarding,” commented Cox.
A cherry on the top of what was a phenomenally successful season for the team was a second place from Jarryd Coetzee. The OR2 rider fought tooth and nail to defend his 2019 title and will certainly return to try reclaim the top step next year.
“What a season it’s been! From not knowing if we’d even be able to race again this year, to walking away with the OR1 and OR3 National championship – it is a big blessing for the team!
I am so proud of the riders and the team for all their hard work and dedication throughout this challenging year. It was a demanding weekend of racing, but everyone gave 110 % and it payed off in the end. We will now regroup and start planning for the 2021 season. Thanks so much to all our riders, their family and everyone in the team for all the sacrifices that made this dream come true for everyone,” said KTM South Africa’s Marketing Manager Louwrens Mahoney.
