In 2016 South Africa was represented by just 3 riders. As a Team they did exceptionaly well to not come last, but due to the way the point systems work lost out on 2 riders points not being available. During the winter series here in the UK Sleyde has developed substationaly as a rider, going from stregth to strength. He continues to gain speed and confidence and has been asked by the South African Team here in the UK to join them for this event. In order for this to happen he needs to raise £1000.00 for the costs of getting to the race and competing in it. The attached video of the Final of Group G 125 cc + 13 YEARS UP TO 18 YEARS, is attached in the video section to give your all an idea of what the competion will be like.
This event has been the selection grounds for the factory teams and sponsors for some years now, with many of the current MXGP, MXGP2, EMX and Junior European Champions having come out of this event. We are not expecting Sleyde to win, but we feel he will qualify in the top 40 for the finals and hope to finish inside the top 30. This will be a huge step for him and wish I was able to facilitate it without asked for help.
I ask you all to please dig deep and give what ever you can. Every little bit you give will bring us closer to the event. We only have a small window to raise the funding for this event.
The event is over three days in July. 14, 15 & 16th ofJuly with us leaving the UK on the 13th and returning the 17th.
