A new generation of riders get their first race experience
with MX SAs Moto Kids.
JOHANNESBURG, GAUTENG, 2015 MX SA kicked off its brand
new Junior Rider Development Fun Series called Moto Kids with
an incredible 24 kids ranging from 4 to 12 years old. Using
a similar format that we developed for the ladies over the
past few years with Diamonds & Dirt, the kids had a series
of fun races based on skill level including both MX and Enduro.
Round 1 took place at Chestnut Hill on 29 March and is in
association with Motorsport South Africa (MSA).

It was difficult to tell who was more excited, the parents,
or the kids, or us but by the end of the day it was clear
that everyone had a great time. For many of the kids it was
their first time in any kind of race situation and from the
absolute beginners to kids who are ready to start racing we
had some intense racing.
We had a total of eight classes based on age and bike size
who were then divided into two groups. For the MX the beginner
group with the peewees and the kids new on their KTMs
raced on the flat track and the older and more advanced kids
raced on the Junior MX Track. The same two groups got their
first taste of off road racing as they were guided around
the little out loop with our marshals for their enduro race.
With so many amazing young riders participating in this first
event, we feel that each and every one of them was truly a
winner. The excitement and sense of accomplishment that you
could see in their faces were absolutely incredible.
Words cannot describe what an incredible day we had and we
would like to thank all the juniors and their parents that
attended, all the friends and family that came out to support
and to everyone that helped, we cant wait for the next
round. Keep an eye on our Social Media and web sites for news
for round two in the coming weeks.
