Team Uganda will yet again feature in the upcoming World Junior Motocross championship due this weekend in Heerde, Netherlands.

Uganda’s MX team made its debut at the Junior Championship last year with three riders; Gift Sebuguzi and the Katende brothers; Miguel and Jonathan Katende. 

This year a total of eight riders will fly the Ugandan flag. 

Jerome Mubiru, Larry Ssekamwa, Ramathan Mubiru, Ashraf Mbabazi Junior, Isaac Mitima and Ally Kimera will be debuting in the competition. 

The eight riders will contest in the MX85 and 65 respectively. 

“You are our best young riders. Have that in mind. Have no fear in the European riders, because as they are best in their countries, you are too for us,” said NCS Assistant General Secretary Joseph Oluga.

“We have the same blood only that we differ in colour but if you believe, you can achieve,” he added.

With only a few days remaining to the competition, FMU Vice president in charge of motorcycling; Arthur Blick Jr expressed his worry in regards to the team’s travel plans to Europe. 

“There is been a delay in securing visas for some riders. We hoped to be there on time and have some training because they have a sandy truck which we are not used to here. But the visas have let us down,” said Blick.

The first group of riders will be flying out on Thursday while the rest of the riders will follow on Friday before the start of the main race on Saturday.
