Kampala: Uganda MX Team Captain, Maxime Van Pee (MVP) returns to active competition this weekend for Round 3 of the Motocross (MX) National Championships which will be held at Busika Motorsport Arena this weekend.
MVP has been out of action for 8 months following the injury he sustained during the FIM Africa Motocross of African Nations Championships in Botswana last year.
After undergoing reconstructive surgery on his knee, he has been on medical recovery until last month when he tested his fitness during FIM CAC Enduro Round 1 championship that was held on Kalangala Island.
“The track is ok and I am ready to gauge myself against the rest of the MX 1 riders although I will take it easy to avoid aggravating my injury at this stage of my recovery,” said MVP after practicing on the Busika track on Thursday.
He also added, “My target will be to give as much challenge to the National contender’s and collect as much points as possible but not chase down our guest riders like I always do”
The Event that will he held on Sunday 13th May will also feature Coby Gilmore from USA , Shahar Balulu from Israel and Jae Min from South Koreas a guest riders in the MX 1 category which will be a good addition to the thin number of riders in that category.
A good challenge is also expected in the 85cc where Fortune Sentamu will face off with nemesis Alon Orland.
