Swanepoel had a great race to end up second overall and second in the highly competitive E2 open class. “I was delighted with my pace today,” Brett beamed after accepting the silver medal. “I won a good few stages this weekend and my pace is as good as anyone’s now — never mind that my Husqvarna performed brilliantly as ever.
Botha meanwhile bounced back from his tick bite fever scare last time out to end up seventh overall and fourth in the hotly contested E1 250cc class. “That was a far better weekend for me,” Henco admitted. “And almost a podium too — I was really happy to be back in the saddle and riding hard again and my Husqvarna never missed a beat.”
Young Green meanwhile won his 3rd race in a row as he took a clean sweep to win every special stage on the day as he rode his Husqvarna TE 125 home to an emphatic Junior victory.
“Harding was a weekend of high expectations met with the delivery of great results,” Husqvarna Motorcycles South Africa brand manager Fred Fensham concluded. “Brett showed that once again he is becoming one with the Husqvarna TE 300 with a fine second and Henco displayed great heart after his health issues and finished 4th in E1, while Matt really excelled.
“The Pepson Plastics Husqvarna team has shown great form throughout the season — all the hard work is certainly paying off!”
