YAMAHA Gozo Motocross Championship- Round 4

Tuesday, January 16, 2018, 7:28

The Gozo Motorcross Association organised its fourth round of the championship 2018 at Ta’ Xħajma Track. Races started at 1pm.

Gozitan and Maltese riders came together to provide the most challenging and determined races of the season. In Class A, nine riders participated in one of the most challenging events ever. Nothing was truly determined until the very end. All of the riders put on an incredible show of motocross racing. Unfortunately Joseph Bigeni had bike trouble so he had to opt out of the races. Malta champion Clayton Camilleri came in third, while David Dimech won second place. Camilleri’s younger brother Kyle, won this category while Steve Xuereb placed fourth with just 1 point behind Camilleri. Etienne Bigeni, Stefan Dimech, Robert Spiteri and Keith Bugeja dazed the audience with their incredible stamina and determination.

Class B was just as challenging with Nataniel Camilleri on his Yamaha YZ 250cc acquiring maximum points followed closely by Matthew Zammit and Jorn Stellini respectively. Maltese veteran rider, Lewis Debono also joined this category.

In Class C, Anthony Fenech did very well followed by Mark Camilleri with 5 points behind.  Matthew Spiteri showed great determination in his bid to place well. In fact he placed third in this class while Raymond Caruana, Steve Cassar and Emma Xuereb continued to pursue their competitors.

The president, Frank Xuereb, handed trophies to each winner. Today’s event was also supported by ‘Service with a smile on time, tiles, plastering and gypsum’.

Gozo Motocross Association would like to thank CVC for their constant support by filming today’s event which will later feature in SportGhawdex on TVM2, presented by John Busuttil at Gozo Sports Board, every Monday at 18:30.
