The highly competitive Motocross Class A riders demonstrate true skills of riding their motorcycles. The ex-champion Clayton Camilleri has progress very well both in riding techniques and race endurance on his KTM 250cc bike. Clayton is leading with 90 points in 4 races and is very closely followed by Carmel Borg with 88 points on a Suzuki RMZ. Current Championship leader Stefan Dimech is placed 3rd overall with 82 points on a Honda CRF. With 4 races to go in this championship one can never tell who the winner will be. Seven of the ASM Class A and B Motocross riders are preparing to race in the Sicily Regional Motocross Championship in the under 21 and over 21 classes.

Gozo Class B rider Charles Borg on his Honda is leading the Class B championship with 89 points. Charles has built a gap on his Runner-up Turu Micallef who have won 66 points. Both Borg and Micallef ride on Honda CRF’s. Young Brandon Muscat Cassar have 53 points. In fact, 4 riders are sharing 53 points but according to the European rules Brandon Cassar is placed 3rd , Brandon Slowe is 4th, Renato Mizzi is 5th and Joseph Bigeni is 6th overall. Surely next events race points will move them up or down the points scale.
