Cordwalles riders look to up their world ranking

2014-07-28 00:00

TWO Cordwalles Junior School pupils are jetting off to Belgium on Wednesday.

They will be representing South Africa in the Junior Motorcross World Championships.

Cayle Dormehl (13) in Grade 7 and Cameron Durow (11) in Grade 6 will be joining three other top KwaZulu-Natal motorcross riders Matthew Green, Bradley Cox and

Nicholas Adams.

The event will take place over two days on August 9 and 10.

Cayle and Cameron are no strangers to this highly competitive sport after competing in endurance and cross country motorbike races held in Bulgaria and Czech Republic.

Cayle said they had applied to Motorsport South Africa (MSA) for sanction to compete in the World Champs and they were notified a month ago that they had been selected to go to Belgium.

“To participate in this event one needs to be in the top three in the SA championship,” he said.

He said he was looking forward to competing. “This is the third time I’m competing and when I competed in Bulgaria in 2012 I was number 13 in the world for the 65 CC Bikes in the junior world championships,” he said.

Cameron said this would be his second time competing. “Last year I was in Czech Republic and ranked in position 20 in the world and this time I am looking to improve,” he said. Cameron said the event at Lieroux, Belgium, will be challenging because motorsport is the second biggest sport in that country.

“We will be equal to the task and this will also help us improve our experience as riders,” he said.

They said this clashed with their school work, but they catch up.

The hosting circuit in Lieroux, Belgium, is a brand new track layout and facility, which will even the playing field for all competitors.
