The Husqvarna South Africa Motocross Team dug deep this past weekend at the third round of the National Motocross Championship in Bloemfontein.

Davin Cocker, piloting his Husqvarna FC450 in the MX1 class with impressive consistency clawed his way back to hard-earned third-place finishes in both motos, securing a solid fourth-place finish overall. Cocker commented: “I am happy with the way I performed today and my team and bike was great as always. It’s unfortunate that I missed the overall podium with the way the points work, but I can’t complain with podium finishes in both heats.”

Teammate Barend du Toit on his Husqvarna FC250, battling through an injury in the MX2 class, had a difficult weekend. Despite the physical limitations, du Toit persevered, placing seventh in both motos for a seventh-place finish overall. “There is not much to say of this weekend. I injured myself early on in the day which is not ideal with such a competitive field in MX2. It really was a day of just pushing through pain to try and get some points.” He continued to say, “I will be back stronger in the next round and show what I am capable of.”

“We’re incredibly proud of the way both Davin and Barend performed this weekend,” said Kerim Fitz-Gerald, Team Manager for Husqvarna South Africa Motocross. “Davin’s reliability and consistency made him a tough competitor, and Barend’s commitment to racing while injured is truly inspiring. The entire team is behind them, and we know they’ll be back even stronger at the next round.”
