After a three year sabbatical from motocross, former MX2 FIM East and Central motocross championship bronze medalist Michael Ssekubomba believes he is still capable of winning medals for Uganda.
Ssekubomba told NewVision after the FIM Central Africa championship where he finished fourth overall, that missing a podium finish was due to a lack of enough preparation.
“I can still win a medal for Uganda and am going to train so hard so that in Nairobi I finish second or first in December during the return leg of the FIM CAC championship,” Ssekubomba stated.
Ssekubomba finished third in 2012 after a tough but exciting battle with Kenya’s Masalule who later become his favourite friend.
The 32-year-old said that he will continue riding till the Veteran class and will be out to prove the young generation that he is a superpower in motocross.
“I appeal to any corporate out there to support me by buying a new bike so that I compete favourably with these young boys riding the latest models.
In national championship, Ssekubomba faces a tough challenge from youngster Yasin Kasirye whom he trains.
