The first round of the Moto Kids junior rider development academy kicked off on 26 March at the ever popular Dirt Bronco. The series, which is running for the third year, is not only a place to give new juniors on dirt bikes somewhere to learn and grow but it also offers existing riders a place to come out, gain some more experience and have fun in both Motocross and Off road.

The big news for 2017 is the partnership with KTM South Africa and Husqvarna South Africa to help grow the development initiative even further. This comes after several years of support from KTM Centurion. At Round 1 the Red Bull KTM National Motocross team was on hand and they did demo rides, handed out the medals at prize giving, signed posters for everyone and they were on hand to mentor and support the juniors for the entire day.
The new owner of Dirt Bronco, Eddie did a fantastic job in hosting Round1 and we look forward to heading back there for Round 3 later in the year.

We have seen many juniors go through the paces at these events and from there move on to regional and national racing, a clear sign that the stepping stones in place at these events do work.

The series is proudly supported by Motorsport South Africa, Sports and Recreation South Africa, Women in Motorsport with partners like KTM Centurion, KTM South Africa, Husqvarna South Africa as well the Sunoco Race Shop.

The next round takes place on 25 June at Nutbush in Hekpoort.
