Bako's star continues to shine

HARARE - Rising youngster Emmanuel Bako reaffirmed his growing status as one of the hottest riders on the local scene after winning his respective classes in the Bogwheelers Motocross Championships over the weekend.

The Heritage Primary School, Grade Three student, was unmatched in the 50cc A class and 65 cc B class coming first overall, winning all the heats on offer.

Bako, who earlier this year, won first Zimbabwe national race 2015, shrugged off the challenge of more than 15 riders.

The eight-year-old is quickly rising in the ranks of the motocross world and has set his sights on going faster and higher.

His father Brighton said: “He is doing well at the moment; the good thing about this boy is that he works hard and I can tell you he is going places.

Hewer Scott dominated the 50B to finish in first place while Big Chitima came first in the 65A. Young Joshua Halkien won the pee wee after winning all the heats.

Davin Cocker barely put a foot wrong in the 85A, winning all the heats on offer in that class and finishing first ahead of Reagan Bond who settled for second place in the 85A.

Majaji Musariri rallied to number one spot in the 85B while Reagan Wasmuth showed why he remains one of the most respected motocross riders after finishing first in the 125 cc winning all the heats in the process.

Thixton Cameron came first in the MX1 with Reagan Wasmuth dominating in the MX2 ahead of Perry Bradley and Burl Craig who finished second and third respectively.

Meanwhile, Kuda Mhene Jnr who tore his arm ligament on Sunday will be out of action for the next three weeks.

The Lomagundi student expressed disappointment at the fail as he was the obvious race favourite when he lost control of his bike. He was scheduled to get his arm cast in a plaster yesterday.
