In collaboration with the Ministry for Gozo and Gozo Sports Board, the Gozo Motocross Association organised the second part of the Motocross twinning between Gozo and Sicily. Following the successful endeavour in Sicily in May 2018, now it was the Sicilian's turn to visit Gozo and the Ta Xhajma Motocross Track.

A large crowd gathered to watch the races that took place last Sunday between Gozitan, Maltese and Sicilian riders. It was truly a fun day as veterans and young athletes participated in this unique event. The youngest riders, 13 year old Antoine Muscat and 14 year old Mark Camilleri put on a great show while the veteran class proved to be no less especially with the participation of Antonino Muscolino who is the second eldest active motocross rider in Sicily at the age of 71. Female riders Nicole Cutajar and Emma Xuereb also participated in Class D.

These are the results of the day:

1- Kyle Camilleri, 2- Steve Xuereb, 3- Garry Debono

Class B:

1- Daniel Portelli, 2: Robert Spiteri, 3: Jorn Stellini

Class C:

Peppe Cernuto, coordinator of the Sicilian riders said that he enjoyed his time here in Gozo. He was welcomed warmly by the members of the association and he praised the Gozitan organisation. He loved riding Ta Xhajma track and together with GMA president Frank Xuereb, promised to continue this collaboration between the two islands next year. Xuereb donated hand-made souvenirs, made by Steve Xuereb for the occasion.

This event was fuelled by Enemed and also supported by Ravenol. The Ministry for Gozo and the Gozo Sports Board also supported this fantastic event. President Frank Xuereb presented trophies to the winners and also distributed Ravenol merchandise by Galea General Services LTD to the riders.

Round 2 of the Gozo Motocross Championship 2019-20, will be held next Sunday, 10th November 2019. Greek motocross rider Dimitris Keramidas, three times East European Champion and Greek title holder for the last 30 years, will be joining us for this event. Do not miss it.
