MIDAS, RAD Moto and Vision Racing Report by Geoff Kruger

The NORTH vs SOUTH Interprovincial Challenge event was recently held at the Bloemfontein Off- Road Club. A total of around 250 ENTRIES were received for this event. Numbers that motocross in South Africa has not seen in some 15 years! There was an awesome ATMOSPHERE and VIBE around this event and the weekend’s activity was held in the true spirit of camaraderie and sportsmanship.

A big THANK YOU to Anton and Choppie who put in so much effort to ensure the success of this event. As always the Bloemfontein circuit is well prepared, but on this occasion, it was set-up to standards of absolute excellence. “World Class”! - are the words that spring to mind. Well done to all that were involved in organising this event.
