Motorcross rider Aviv Orland has to wait until February if he is to get an international license which grants him the opportunity to take part in international events in the United States of America.
Orland is set to participate in five international events but the local governing body has to first fill the post of deputy vice president in charge of motor cycling which fell vacant last year after the resignation of his father, Barak Orland. In order to receive an international license, the rider has to present the 2020 local license.
FMU General Secretary Joseph Mwangala told Daily Monitor that they have to wait for the February elections on February 1, to elect a substantive voce president.
“We received a letter from Mr Barak Orland requesting us to issue a license to Aviv Orland. But it is unfortunate that we do not have a vice president in charge of motorcycling,” said Mwangala.
He added that the new person is in charge of issuing the 2020 licenses.
Aviv’s activities start in May and they include; Hang-town National, Fox Raceway National (May 23rd), USA, Thunder Valley National (May 30th), Florida National (June 6th) and the High point National (June 20th).
The 125cc rider will taking part in international activities for the first time after fracturing his leg which forced him to miss team Uganda’s Africa Nations Championship in Zimbabwe last year.
