The Veteran rider who retired from contesting for national Motocross Championship has now returned with more enthusiasm and is captaining the Ugandan team.

“We hope to defend the East African Motocross Championship title that we won last year,” boasted Blick.

The Ugandan team of 20 riders started departing for Kenya on Thursday and the last group will be leaving on Friday morning as their bikes were shipped out on Wednesday.

The team was flagged off Wednesday at Lugogo by Joseph Mwangala, the Vice President of Federation of Motorsports Clubs in Uganda (FMU).


During the first round early this year, Kenya used a home advantage to field more riders than Uganda (13 riders) before emerging victorious.

In response, Uganda managed to rise and shine again in the second round hosted in Busiika where it rolled out more riders than Kenyans before taking the trophy. Uganda must now give their all to defend their title.
