Justin Sangster from Bergvliet now holds a national motocross championship.

This after he won three titles this year.

Justin recently excelled in the 125cc High School category during a competition held in Johannesburg, which took place on Saturday 20 October.

He won the title following his shining performances that won him the local Cape Town Club Championship, as well as the provincial championship.

He was also part of the team that represented the country in the Motocross of African Nations in Zambia in August.

“I was over the moon on crossing the finish line knowing I had won the South African 125cc High School title,” says Justin.

“I trained very hard all year long.

“I rode the bike three times a week and went to gym where I worked with a professional sports trainer to improve my strength and endurance.

“I also followed a special eating plan. Being a motocross rider demands very hard work and dedication.”

Justin says motocross has been a large part of his life – a part which started at the tender age of five years old.

Though he has the potential to achieve even greater things in motocross, Justin is looking at the bigger picture for himself.

He is balancing his passion for motocross with his studies to make sure he scores good grades.

He hopes this will allow him to pursue further studies in medicine.

“Although I love the sport, I don’t see myself going much further in motocross as it is very expensive.

“I don’t have any sponsors. My parents took me to Europe to race two years ago and I was as good as the top riders in Holland, France and the UK.

“My dream is to study medicine, so I am going to have to work very hard to achieve that dream.

“I try to stay ahead of schoolwork and sometimes I have to sacrifice going out with friends on weekends when I need to study or complete projects.

“I also stay at school on some days to do my homework or to study.”

Justin says the secret to his success is giving everything he does 100% effort.
