Motocross racers kicked up the dirt in 19 races at Nongprue Cycle Cross 2014 at the Mabprachan Reservoir.
Former Culture Minister Sonthaya Kunplome opened the Sept. 3 competition at the lake’s motocross stadium with he and Nongprue Mayor Mai Chaiyanit handing out the many trophies and cash prizes.
The tournament was organized to develop skills of young riders both on the bike and in the repair garage. It was hoped it also gave them more skill driving regular motorbikes on the street.
