South Africa’s top enduro talent went head-to-head in Robertson this weekend for the fifth round of the National Enduro Championship. In what is described as the valley of ‘wine and roses’, hard enduro fans were met with a scene of guts and grits as riders navigated through some of the country’s most unforgiving terrain.
Taking centre stage in the Brother Leader Tread KTM team was Bradley Cox. While the multi-disciplined star has taken the National Cross Country Championship by storm, the enduro side of his season has been quiet by his own high standards.
This weekend, however, brought the breakthrough that Cox had been waiting for. It was a proud moment for the orange team as Cox crossed the finish line to snatch up second in the prestigious E1 Class and fourth overall.“Hours and hours have gone into my enduro riding and it finally paid off this weekend! To say I’m stoked is an understatement,” said Cox.
Adding to his excitement was his first experience racing the 2020 KTM 150 EXC TPI. The new generation of enduro machines were recently launched in South Africa and have the Brother Leader Tread KTM squad smitten.
“I super enjoyed the KTM 150 EXC TPI. The first 15km’s were pretty fast, and then the next 15km’s were gnarly rock beds. The bike was just perfect for everything – it was so clean off the bottom-end and I was pretty much in second gear everywhere. The chassis was so good in the fast stuff too, it felt unreal. I’m really happy on it and think KTM have hit the nail on the head with this bike,” said Cox.
Rounding out the Brother Leader Tread KTM team was Scott Bouverie and Kirsten Landman in the E2 Class, who finished in fifth and twelfth respectively.
