Small, sharp Pepson Plastics Kawasaki team for Ganyesa

Pepson Plastics Scottish Cables Motul Factory Kawasaki Racing is sending a small, sharp team to round 3 of the 2023 Trademore South African Cross Country Racing championship at Ganyesa this weekend, following another successful Gauteng GXCC outing at Radium over the past weekend.

“We head to our annual desert race at Excelsior Farm at Ganyesa north of Vryburg in the Northwest off another very good outing at the Radium GXCC on Saturday,” Pepson Plastics Scottish Cables Motul Factory Kawasaki Racing team boss Iain Pepper confirmed. “We will be taking a smaller team than usual to the National for a few reasons, but we arrive with a strong attack in various classes.

Kenny Gilbert, who won Seniors at Radium on Saturday, Masters winner there and National leader Pieter Holl will head our Ganyesa attack. They will be joined by Ryan Angilley, who returns to OR3 after injury, Jayden Boyce in 125 High School, and Jake Pretorius in Junior 85. Taki Bogiages is injured, Wian Wentzel is writing university exams and Jaycee Nienaber will miss this one.”

Pepson Plastics Scottish Cables Motul Factory Kawasaki rider Pieter Holl has enjoyed a brilliant season so far and arrives at Ganyesa in a strong Masters championship lead off another regional win last weekend. Seniors’ teammate Kenny Gilbert also won his Senior regional class over the weekend, but he has a tougher task in the national having misdeed the first round and ending second in the second race.

Comeback rider Ryan Angilley is Pepson Plastics Kawasaki’s sole rider in OR3 this weekend. Teammate Wian Wentzel may be indisposed for the National weekend but he enjoyed a strong second in OR3 in the past weekend’s regional. Jaycee Nienaber was also third in OR1 at three Radium regional, where Lee Thompson came home fourth in Seniors too.

“We have a small but sharp Pepson Plastics Scottish Cables Motul Factory Kawasaki contingent heading to the desert,” Iain Pepper concluded. “We wish them all the very best of luck. Bring that silverware home guys!”

*Pepson Plastics Scottish Cables Motul Kawasaki Factory Racing salutes Gilberts Mining & Engineering, the Reinhardt Transport Group, Michelin, Arai, Bikewise, Acerbis and Renthal handlebars for their support.
