National Motocross Championship | Round 4 | Richards Bay

The Red Bull KTM Team continued their winning streak at the fourth round of the South African National Motocross Championship held at the challenging Teza Motocross track. Located near Richards Bay, Teza’s demanding layout pushed riders to their limits, but the KTM squad rose to the occasion, showcasing a combination of experience, teamwork, and raw talent.

Cameron Durow shines once again in MX1 and MX2, maintaining his perfect season.
Championship leader Durow defied a gruelling travel schedule to extend his undefeated streak in his respective classes. Having just returned from competing in the USA on Tuesday, Durow displayed remarkable focus to dominate the weekend. Despite the challenging travel, he kept his head down and maintained a consistent pace, strategically avoiding unnecessary risks to secure another flawless victory.
Durow commented, “It was a tough but rewarding weekend. I’m thrilled to keep my perfect season going. My main goal was to have fun and ride smart. I didn’t want to take any big chances that could jeopardize the win.”

Luke Grundy made his talents known, securing a well-deserved second-place finish overall in the MX2 class. Grundy’s impressive performance included a highlight-reel holeshot and a thrilling battle with his teammate for the lead in the second heat. Prior to the race, Grundy collaborated with his mechanic, Kevin Tyrer, to fine-tune his transition from practice bike to race bike, a change that clearly paid off on the track.

Grundy reflected, “After a rough start in the first heat, I was determined to grab the holeshot in the second moto. I can’t deny I’m happy with how that turned out! It was fantastic battling Cameron for the lead for a few laps. Once he passed me, I focused on maintaining the gap to the rider in third and bringing home a strong second-place finish.”

Trey Cox entered the Teza round hungry for his first overall victory in the High School class. His quest was briefly challenged by a second-lap crash in the first heat, but he bounced back to secure an impressive second place finish. The second heat saw him overcome another hurdle – a poor start – before battling through the pack to claim victory. This win secured him the coveted overall win for the class. Despite his success, Cox remains focused on the championship lead. Currently only two points behind the leader, his sights are set on securing the red plate as soon as possible.

Cox commented: “This weekend is a mixed bag for me. While I’m excited to get my first overall win in High School finally, I missed out on gaining crucial championship points. Ultimately, that red plate is my main goal, but I am happy with how the weekend went and I am dead set on trying my best to claim the red plate!”

“What an incredible weekend for the Red Bull KTM Team!” Said Team Manager, Kerim Fitz-Gerald. “Cameron continues to fly the orange flag high and maintain his perfect seasons despite his travel schedule. Really happy for Luke for claiming the second in MX2 and his fantastic holeshot. Proud of Trey’s fighting spirit in securing his first overall win in the High School class. We are very excited for what the rest of the season holds in store.”
