The Gozo Motorcross Association organised the semi-final of the championship 2019 at Ta' Xħajma Track. Races started at 1:00pm

Half way through the competition, a sudden heavy downpour forced the riders to run for shelter. The GMA committee together with the riders agreed that the track had become too dangerous, therefore the races had to be stopped.

Meanwhile, riders of Class A Steve Xuereb and David Dimech fought hard to place in the first positions in all of the three heats. Xuereb, who is at the top of the classification won first place while Dimech followed closely. In Class B Glenn Vella came in first.  Mario Cauchi placed second while Robert Spiteri came in third place. Vella is at the top of his game, collecting maximum points in each competition.

In Class C, Daniel Portelli did very well. He was followed closely by Jorn Stellini who is heading his class and is on his way to victory.  Returning rider Godfrey Bigeni came in thrid place.

Class D was the most interesting with 16 year old Isaac Bartolo topping the game followed by Eric Cardona. In third place, David Mercieca is heading his class although nothing is truly certain until the very end.
