As we pulled into the Phakisa MX park amidst the sound of roaring super bikes and cars (which were on the main circuit), we could feel that there was something special about the place. Riders from JHB, PE, EL, Bloem, PMB and Cape Town participated in the event.
The day started with a short prayer and thereafter 3 special 2015 awards were presented – firstly to Joshua Mlimi for his outstanding accomplishments, secondly to Johnny Nell for his energy and years of support and lastly to Karen Sangster for her commitment, loyalty and efforts as the WOMZA National MX Secretary.
