Round 6 of EMX 125cc Series takes place at the infamous Maggiora Motocross Park in Italy, with New Zealand’s Josiah Natzke (KTM Factory Junior Team) dialled for top results.

Not since Ben Townley won the GP Round at Castiglione Del Lago in 2002 and 2005, along with Josh Coppins win of 1-1 at the GP Round at Mantova in 2007, has a Kiwi competed on a track long established in Europe’s Motocross history.

Geoff Meyer editor of (www.mxlarge.com) attributes the track as ‘the circuit is very “old school” motocross- lots of big uphills and downhills’. There is even a restaurant at the top of one of the uphills!

Hard pack, varying changes in elevation, how will Natzke race EMX 125cc come the weekend?

Josiah: ‘I’m just keen to go racing and try repeat results at France that would be ideal. It won’t be easy though. Main focus will be qualifying well to put myself in a good position to get a good start and go’.

With 15 points dif to leader, Josiah has certainly proved his position at the pointy end of the table.

Q: What stands out as the most important thing that you have learnt since beginning EMX 125cc Championship Series?

Josiah: ‘How to put the pieces of the puzzle together. I hate puzzles and I’m not good at them but I’m learning to love them because a puzzle that is put together properly will win races’.
