Despite defeating Kenya national team captain and MX1 champion Ivan Guya during the fifth round of the National Motocross Championship at Victoria Race Way Park Garuga on Sunday, Maxime Van was not happy with the results of the day.
The Uganda team captain, who won 2 of the 3heats, said that he had wanted to win all the tightly contested 3heats for Ugandan fans to celebrate more.
“Yes I have won the overall but I wanted to win the third heat too for our fans who have endured all the dust and hot weather,” Maxime stated with a low tone.
“I made a mistake and fell in the last heat but it is good I won overall,” Maxime added.
He was however impressed with the standard of Ugandan riders in the junior classes and said motocross has a future.
Guya, who led the Kenya team as guest riders, also attributed his defeat to the crash in the first heat and engine failure in the second heat when he entered a wrong gear in a corner and failed to start in time.
He promised to fight back in the FIM Africa nation’s championship in Zimbabwe next month.
