GERMAN motocross trainer Jurgen Kuper started training the national team on Tuesday at Garuga Racing Track in preparation for the FIM Africa Central Africa Motocross championship in Nairobi next month. 

Kuper who was the guest rider on Sunday during the fifth round of the NOMI National Motocross Championship started with fine tuning the riders on how to control the power of the bike in the various sections.

Handling the youngsters who impressed him a lot with the rate at which they were learning, Kuper said that it’s the belief of the rider that makes him what he wants to be.

“They are responding very fast especially the kids. My friend here (Imran Nkurunziza) is doing well and is a fast learner,” Kuper stated while instructing the others on how to be focused while riding.

He discouraged the riders from riding behind opponents because the dust from bikes will always distract them.

“Riding behind your colleague is dangerous because you may not see the stones on the track and eventually you’ll slide and fall” he added.

Low turn up affects training

Being a school day with many riders busy with exams, the turn up was low and Kuper could not take the riders through all the prepared drills. The rest of the riders are expected to turn up on Friday and Saturday.

Kuper trains the 85cc, 65cc, and 50cc in the morning and then the MX1, MX2 and seniors in the afternoon.

Maxime Van Pee, John Schrier, Zeb Byaruhanga, Zaya Byaruhanga, Yogi Nkurunziza, Arthur Blick Jnr and Vince Schrier were those present for the sessions.
