It was already difficult to gain information about the South African participants, but information about Team Zambia was practically unobtainable. It is rumoured that there are an overall of 15 participants coming to Namibia and taking part in all classes, but we only know the names of two!
However, this does not hinder Radiowave 96,7 to act as sponsor for the team from the north of our country. Radiowave has supported the Namibian MX-sport with airtime for many years already.
Iulian Dias (ZAM)
In the 50cc class we expect the participation of Iulian Dias. Iulian was born on the 10th of August 1999 in Harare/Zimbabwe, now lives in Zambia, and is a member of the Copperbelt Dirt Riders Club. In 2007 he won the Zambian Championships in the 50cc class. Here comes a real Champion!
The second rider is Hennie Duvenhage. Hennie was born on the 8th of April 1999 and started MX-racing in 2006. In the same year he achieved an excellent 2nd place in the Zimbabwean "Summer-Series" and a third place in the Zambian Championships in the 50cc class. We also learnt that Hennie took part in the 2007 AMU Africachampionship in Kenya. Unfortunately we were not able to get more information.
