Home advantage

Maxime van Pee, Team Uganda captain said they will use home advantage to collect as many points before the return leg later in the year.

"We expect around 60 riders with only Ali 'Bobo' Omar in the 125cc absent.

He is recovering from an injury he sustained at the beginning of the season," Maxime told the Daily Monitor.

Uganda registered wins in the MX50, MX65 and MX85 last year.

Alon Orland is defending champion in MX65cc after he edged Kenya's Race Garner. Kenya also had Ethan Nyachae, Rolf Kihara and Ngugi Waweru winning the MX125, MX2 and MX1 respectively.
