Gilbert, Bogiages set for Lesotho charge
Pepson Plastics Husqvarna Racing star Kenny Gilbert heads for the 27 July Live Lesotho 400 looking to make it three wins on the trot in the African Cross Country Motorcycle OR1 championship, while teammate Taki Bogiages is confident to be back on top form for his OR2 attack.
Gilbert will arrive at Thaba Bosiu Cultural Village-based race in a comfortable lead in the OR1 title chase following his wins in the previous two races. “I have had a good run so far this season and I’m now looking forward to another strong race in Lesotho” Kenny confirmed. “The mountain tracks are bound to be quite technical, which I prefer and my Pepson Plastics team will have my Husqvarna ready to keep our championship momentum rolling – let’s do it!”
Bogiages meanwhile heads to the Maluti Mountains on the front foot and keen to ramp his OR2 title chase up following strong regional race results as he returns to full strength. “I am delighted with my day by day progress,” Taki admitted. “Now the hard work starts as I push forward. “I can’t thank my Pepson Plastics Husqvarna team enough for the support throughout, but our next stop is the Lesotho national where I plan to pay all the guys back with best possible results.”
“Pepson Plastics Husqvarna Racing arrives at the Live Lesotho 400 Cross Country race on the front foot,” Husqvarna Motorcycles South Africa brand manager Fred Fensham concluded. “Championship leader Kenny has been in brilliant OR1 form this season and Taki is quickly getting back on top form in OR2 — go get it guys!”
