In a correspondence to the media, the Bartica-based racing team — consisting of Andrew Wong with his 2018 KTM 125cc dirt bike, Bobby Rasul with his 2019 YZ Yamaha 125cc bike, and Stephen Vieira with his 2016 YZ Yamaha 125cc bike – have expressed confidence of a repeat of their impressive showing last year.
At the 2018 Bartica Regatta Motocross event, Rasul and Vieira were tied for the champion biker accolade in the 125cc event, after each had notched one win, one second and one third place finish in the three races in which they had competed; while Wong had won the third race.
News from Team BLB indicate that their machines are in prime working condition, while reports from Bartica have revealed that the Mongrippa Hill ground has in place all systems for keen rivalry among bikers from Georgetown, Essequibo and Bartica.
