Durban-born Factory Red Bull KTM motocrosser Tyla Rattray became only the third South African to have clinched a motocross world championship when he won the FIM MX2 series in the final round of the championship in Faenza, Italy, last weekend. The win is Rattray’s maiden title in the MX2 class, after finishing as runner-up in 2004 and being thwarted by injuries in previous championships.
