Junior Ugandan female rider Shadia Kateete 85cc is not scared of the foreign motocross riders coming for the first edition of the Armed Forces Championship.
Over 25 foreign motocross riders have already confirmed their participation in the championship scheduled to take place on sixth October at Busiika Motocross Arena.
At just 8 years of age, Shadia Kateete is hoping to be the Uganda number one female motocross rider.
She is among Ugandan riders aiming to showcase her talent during the newly introduced Armed Forces Appreciation Motocross championship.
During an interview with her, the Junior Rider revealed her desire to be the top female rider in Uganda.
This competition has renewed Kateete’s desire to pit herself against the best. “This number of foreign riders is big and it seems that more are coming, this is like a wake up for Ugandans to start training.”
