She also added that the company is committed towards the promotion of sports and will go an extra mile to facilitate the training of the young riders in the 50cc and 65cc category to improve on their skills.
 

“We want many more Blicks and Maxime in future and as TOTAL, we shall be involved in the training of 50 and 65cc category riders.
 

National motocross team captain Arthur Blick Jnr assured stakeholders that his charges are ready and will win this year’s FIM-Central Africa Motocross Challenge (FIM-CAC) that starts with the first round at the Uganda Motorsport Arena in Busiika on Easter Sunday.
 

“We are naming a strong team that am confident will reclaim this trophy we lost last year to Kenya. All our riders are in good shape and have improved on their speed a thing that keeps me confident,” Blick stated.
 

He added that Uganda will field a team of 50 riders to be able to collect maximum points in the first leg. The second leg will be hosted by Kenya and then Uganda the final leg again.
 

The FIM-CAC will have riders from Ivory Coast, Tanzania, DRC and defending champions Kenya.
