EMX Championship Series 7 Rounds

Josiah Natzke showed true determination, skill and fight to gain 7-3 in FIM World Motocross Championship EMX 125cc at Trentino, Italy in the weekend.

After Qualfying 16th on Saturday, Josiah stayed focused on his goal of eliminating mistakes finishing 7th in Race 1 proving he is determined to run up front and be a real contender for Europe’s EMX 125cc Championship Title in the 7 Round Series.

Josiah Natzke: “I struggled with qualifying so that’s something I have to learn. It was a bit up and down in the races but it ended okay. In the second race I was up to fifth or sixth and I made some good passes on the first lap. I’ve got a lot of things to work on for next weekend especially in the sand.”

In what was described as the most electric atmosphere with over 32,000 fans, Natzke stayed on task despite the enormity of the event and nailed 3rd in Race 2.


Josiah’s impressive result of 5th Overall was not only met with congratulations from fans back home in NZ but also from watchful Media sources in Europe.

MXGP correspondence: ‘The young guns of the EMX125 had the luxury of being the first race of the day. This meant they had a well-watered track, which on top of clay and rock was going to make things a little more interesting with traction being hard to find’.

‘While Finland’s Sihvonen win was impressive, as was the performance of KTM Factory Junior’s young Kiwi Josiah Natzke who had the slick and technical circuit dialled, passing his teammate, the hole-shot getter Jorge Prado Garcia, early on in the race to solidly claim third’. Reference MXGP.

With Josiah’s Round 2 EMX 125 at Valkenswaard next weekend on sand, 5th Overall in Standings puts Natzke in good stead for the EMX125 Championship Series.
