Battling temperatures of 39 degrees, racing natural terrain hard pack and encountering several incidents in both races, Josiah concedes he is not happy with the result. However, the learning curve adds fuel to finishing the European Motocross Championship 125cc in top position.Standing 2nd Overall in EMX 125c with 2 Rounds to go, Josiah has proved a formidable contender on European tracks with his never-give-up attitude and dogged determination that he is there for the long-term.
