Gozo Motocross Championship Wraps Up with a Thrilling Final Round

On Sunday 5th May, the Gozo Motocross Association presented the Final Round of the Gozo Motocross Championship 2024, fuelled by Enemed. Devoted spectators flocked to the Ta Xhajma Motocross Track, excited to see their favourite riders compete on the challenging course.

With five victories in a row under his belt, veteran champion Steve Xuereb furthered his domination by winning his sixth Gozitan overall Championship. In the meantime, Neil Azzopardi won the Class C competition this year, and Matthew Buttigieg won Class B after winning Class C the year before. Eight-year-old Matthias Sultana made history by becoming the first-ever Junior Champion. Throughout the season, he showed pace and consistency.

The Gozo Sports Board Chairman, Mr. Eddie Vella, had the privilege of delivering the Victory Trophies to the worthy winners, recognising their efforts, to loud acclaim.

There was intense competition throughout the day’s events in a number of classes, highlighted by David Dimech’s triumph in Class A, Jorn Stellini and Roderick Cauchi’s noteworthy results in Class B, and Chris Farrugia and Redeemer Vella’s in Class C. In the Junior Class, Craig Piscopo and Trystn Theuma trailed closely behind Matthias Sultana.

E-bike fans and up-and-coming riders took to the track, showcasing their ability in the face of competition. Emma Xuereb, Kelsey Vella, and Maria Camilleri were among the female riders who added to the excitement.

Mr. Mark Cini acknowledged the efforts of each and every participant and gave awards to the victors, showcasing the motocross community’s strong sense of friendship and sportsmanship.

As a gesture of inclusivity and expansion, the GMA gave new riders a chance to show off their racing skills by giving them a platform. A special thank you was extended to the hardworking marshals whose dedication makes sure that every event runs smoothly.

With the end of another exciting season, the GMA thanked all of its sponsors, namely Enemed and the Ministry for Gozo, for their crucial assistance, especially the people and organisations for their contributions, which have been crucial to the championship’s success: CVC Media, Emergency Response Rescue Corps, and committed volunteers.

The GMA promises to return in October with renewed vigour and enthusiasm for the much-anticipated GMA Championship 2025, following a well-earned summer break.

Enemed’s involvement as the official partners of the championship is crucial in fostering the expansion and advancement of motorsport in Gozo, demonstrating their talent to both the local community and high-calibre sports.
