Shivam Vinayak was back in the groove following victory in the fifth round of the National Enduro Championship staged in Kajiado on Sunday.
With all his adversaries in hot pursuit, the University of Nairobi second year dentistry student cleared the ground in his Kawasaki 450 four-stroke machine which worked out really well on the technical terrain of Kajiado.
Second overall was Nakuru newcomer Mark Glen as Sean Wilcock, who has ridden quite aggressively of late.
Wilcock’s namesake, Sean Pelling, was fourth, followed by Ian Duncan.
Veteran Anthony Nielsen did not participate in the race following an injury that he sustained in practice on Saturday.
Shivam was all smiles following his victory.
“It was such a technical race,” said Shivam, whose off-road limits in Cross Country Raid have been stymied by mechanical gremlins.
Zane Young won the Quads section, followed by his sister Chantal Young, while Chris Wahome came home third.
The event, which brought together quad and bike riders, was organised by the East African Motor Sports Club (EAMSC).
Riders got lots of pleasure from the magnificent setup, riding in the sandy riverbeds, although the greatest fun and challenge was apparent in the ascents and descents which treated spectators to some exhilarating displays of off-road riding artistry.
