25.09.2007 Triumph And Tragedy – The Karl Stegen Story
MX is way more than racing. It’s full of wonderful personalities and stories. I did start to work for Mxworld to bring the human side of MX to the people. For a while now I wanted to learn more about a special South African rider. His name is Karl Stegen.

23.08.2007 AMU Motocross-Championships in Kenya

Successful Namibian Junior Motocross Team returns from
A.M.U. All Africa Championships in Kenya

After all the last minute organizing and anticipation, the 7 Namibian riders returned home with well earned success and holding their heads high. It was an enormous experience for our riders facing possibly their toughest race conditions yet. The track conditions, although absolutely of the highest standards, were not what our riders are used to. Riding borrowed bikes with only a short time to get used to them, did not make it any easier.

From the 17th to the 19th of August the Motocross Africa Championships 2007 will be hosted in the vicinity of Kenya’s capital Nairobi.
Planning by the Namibians started early this season already but by March it was clear that the costs for the Namibian national team would be too high. As often before, the endeavour failed due to the costs for the transportation of the bikes. Unfortunately the invitation had to be turned down.

07.09.2006 Loving memories of the Stegen Family
Karl’s death obviously came as a huge shock to us, and many others.
Everyone who knew us well will know that we were a very close family, and his death was expected to affect us very badly. Yes, it has, but really nothing quite like what we expected or what we had been told. At least not up to this stage. To some extent his death is still sinking in and in so many ways we want to do something or other, only to realize that Karl is no longer with us.

18.05.2006 AMU Enduro Results from Zimbabwe
Jan de Haan (Namibia)
The AMU (African Motorcycle Union) Baja, which took place last weekend in the vicinity of Harare was overall a great success. However it has to be mentioned that only 4 countries took part and the best riders from South Africa did not participate. It is about time to investigate, why the interest of particularly South African riders is lacking, not only in Enduro but the same applies in the AMU Southern African Moto Cross Challenge.
