KAMPALA. The Victoria Race Track is the place to be today.
Riders will be battling for points in during the fourth round of the Mountain Dew MX Championship. Rally fans will also have a slice of action as the first round of CRC and National Sprint Championship takes place at the 2km sprint double track.
In the MX, Gift Ssebuguzi and Alon Orland, who have not tested defeat in the previous three rounds will be out to strengthen their grip in MX50 cc and MX65cc respectively.

Fortune Ssentamu, in MX85cc, looks set to dominate in the absence of Stav and Aviv Orland while Ali ‘Bobo’ Omar perennial rival Alestair Blick are separated by only four points with Paddy Blick, a further 25 pts.
Veteran Arthur Blick Jr, a 10-time MX1 champion, will take on Asaf Natan and reigning champion Maxime van Pee who has recovered from his knee surgery. In the sprint, Blick Jr, Ronald Ssebuguzi, Omar Mayanja, Christakis Fitidis, Rauf Adam and Kephar Walubi all have one thing in common. They drive Mitsubishi Evo X and will want to gauge their cars ahead of the Pearl Rally later this month. The event is sponsored by Mountain Dew, Shell Advance, Cherish Hospital and Lato Milk.
