Gift Ssebuguzi and Kreidah Nsubuga are set to line up against each other for the final event on the 2019 calendar.
Both riders will proudly fight for the MX65CC title at probably the biggest and most exciting event of the year, the Mountain Dew MX Championship at the Victoria race track in Garuga today.
Both riders are separated by just four points going into the final race of the year and there will be no margin of error.
But this simply a sub-plot to what promises to be an intriguing race in the MX50 Peewee, MX50 seniors, and MX125 categories, whose titles are yet to be decided.

It is no surprising the four have been the most exciting through the previous six races this season and are guaranteed more twist, turns and excitement.
With the riders going in the reverse following the upgrade of the track, the fans will get value for their money.
In 50cc Peewee, Ashraf Mbabazi looks a good bet for the title. The battle for the other two podium places will be between, Jonathan Katende sponsored by Oryx Energies and Shell-sponsored Liam Ntale. The two are separated by 12 points.

William Blick Jr is odds on for the MX50 senior title despite the efforts of Pascal Kasozi. Lato Milk rider Miguel Kitende is 54 points behind.
Katende has spent a week training at the new track and expecting good result.
“I’m coming in this race looking for only a win in all the 3 heats and wait for what will happen with the leader, William Blick,“ Katende told the Sunday Monitor.

Maxime Van Pee (MX1), Waleed Omar (85cc), Ismail Mukiibi (MX2) and Pieter Pelser (Vets class) will be riding for pride after sealing their respective titles in previous round.
Meanwhile, drivers will have a shake down ahead of the final NRC event, the Mosac Rally, next weekend. Top four drivers in the NRC, CRC and 2WD will battle out.
Shell Advance, Fotogenix, Uganda Lodges as well as Fire and Safety Appliances, are the other sponsors.
