This weekend the National MotoCross Championship heads to the sandy track in Nelson Mandela Bay for the fourth round. Husqvarna Racing have their sights set on a solid result after a slower-than-normal start to the season.

Michael Docherty said: “I’m looking forward to PE, finally had some time to get myself healthy again.” He added that “it’s going to be good racing with all the boys and been looking forward to racing in PE for many years now. My main goal is to go out there and win but it isn’t going to be easy as the riders here are riding at a much higher level than before, but I’m excited for good battles.”

Young Neil van der Vyver who is currently lying in second place in the championship is visibly excited at the prospect of racing on familiar soil. “I can’t wait for PE, it’s one of my favourite tracks because it’s so technical and the more technical it is, the better so I’m looking really forward to the race” he said. He went on to say that he is just a few points down in the championship and that the goal is obviously to win.

Josh Mlimi knows how tough the sand in PE gets and was cautiously apprehensive. He commented “I’m feeling really good, that is one step in the right direction, PE is always tough so will be looking to make up some points and just get comfortable again but most importantly get home safe.” He went on to say “I know it is not going to be easy for everyone so looking to be in the fight for as long as possible and get the best result”
