Motocross Races In Nigeria
Hitherto, conventional belief was that Africans cant do motorsports! The success so far recorded by the Motorcycle Sports Club of Nigeria in three (3) short months since the races started is testament to the potential huge popularity that the sport can enjoy in the country of 150 million people.
To this end, the Edo State Government has commissioned the construction of a 4km Asphalt track for superbike races...a first in Nigeria, West Africa and arguably, the Black World. All thanks to the vision of a young man, Mr Okao Oduagbon to challenge status quo and cause a paradigm shift.
Please bring to the attention of your world wide viewers and the Sports world, the tectonic shift in motorsports. If Africans can participate in motorsports as already demonstrated in motocrossnaija, a whole new industry capable of changing the socio economic conditions of Black Africans is about to take off.
