Finishing 7th Overall at World Junior MX Championships in 2014, Josiah remains determined to up the ante before the Final Rounds of EMX 125cc, breaking the slowdown of Kiwi podiums since Hamish Dobbyn’s 3rd at Taupo’s hosting of World MX Junior’s in 2009.

Josiah: ‘Competing at World Junior’s will be tough. My team-mate Jorge Prado is from Spain and he has a lot of support there. And you have to nail it because it’s only 2 races for a World Title’.

Racing Junior World’s on the natural terrain track at El Molar will add to Josiah’s experience competing on Europe’s various dirt/sand tracks with the extra bonus of gaining race time before Lommel and the Final Round of EMX 125cc at Assen.

With his usual openness in answering questions, Natzke stays focused on his goals.

Josiah: ‘Every moto counts. I always think back and go man if I could have done this better here I could be leading the EMX 125cc Championship right now. But it’s pretty tight at the moment (with only 10 points from the leader) so it’ll come down to the last race I think’.
