National Motocross Championship – Round 8

It was another bullish weekend for Red Bull KTM’s, Cameron Durow, at the final round of the National Motocross Championship held at Chestnut Hill.
Undoubtedly, it’s no secret that Durow is the standout figure to watch in the Motocross world after wrapping up two championship titles in the previous round.

Grant Frerichs, Group Marketing Manager commented, “It was strange to go to a race day without any championship pressure after wrapping up all 3 of our respective championships a round early. Cameron Durow still showed up on the day with the only intention of winning and he proved moving into 2024 that he is once again the one to beat. We are extremely happy to have 2 number 1 bikes under our Red Bull KTM Gazebos next year in the premier classes.”

Competing in the MX1 and MX2 classes and with an absolutely perfect season for Durow claiming overall wins for both classes, he commented, “A bit disappointed that it’s over now, but it’s been an amazing year for me and I ended off really strong with both overall wins and winning every overall this year has really been a big achievement for me.” He continued, “I am super excited to start 2024 off with two red plates and excited to see what the year has in store.”

Luke Grundy, the reigning High School class champion, concluded his final race in this category, gearing up to transition to the elite MX2 division next year among the seasoned pros. Regarding this shift, he remarked, “It was a good weekend in the books as it was my last race in the 125cc High School class and my first race in the MX2 class. The track got really technical but I had loads of fun racing at such a high-intensity level. Checked off a lot of boxes this past weekend and looking forward to what next year has in store.”

Jonothan Mlimi, representing the MX2 class, put up an impressive performance coming in 5-3 and third overall. He commented, “It’s been a tough season but I am stoked to walk away with a third overall for the final round. I am excited for the 2024 season and to battle it out for the top step.”
