Tuesday, May 16, 2017, 10:09

The Gozo Motorcross Association brought its Championship to an end. The numerous crowd that attended the finals on Sunday enjoyed an amazing show of racing as riders continued to challenge each other in a competitive but friendly manner to the end.

Mario Cauchi was crowned Champion of Class A and overall champion of the Yamaha Gozo Motocross Championship 2016/17. Cauchi started out the championship on a good note following the very close call he had during last year’s competition. Diversely challenged along this vying journey, Cauchi held on tight to his position which ultimately awarded him the pinnacle of this exciting championship.

Keith Bugeja was reigned champion of Class B. His progress was evident as he achieved one accomplishment after another in each race on his brand new Yamaha YZ 250. Keith will be promoted to Class A.

Class C also turned out to be an interesting competition as the result remained indecisive to the end. However Joseph Luke Gauci managed to upturn the outcome and was therefore crowned Champion of Class C.

At the end of the races, trophies, awards and gifts were given to those who deserved it most.

Steve Xuereb was awarded Best Rider 2016/17.

The ‘Frank Bruno Motocross Award 2017’ was given to Robert Spiteri for his continuous enthusiasm, dedication, and discipline as a rider-member of GMA.
