It’s coming. The 2011 Motocross of Nations. France. The biggest MX race in the world. This year it’s September 17 and 18, in St. Jean d’Angely.
You can watch Team USA (AMA Supercross Champion) Ryan Villopoto, Ryan Dungey (2010 AMA Motocross and Supercross Champion) and Blake Baggett (most wins in AMA 250 MX Lites class this season) defend their title against the best riders in the world, here on Supercross.com.
And here is our video recap of the 2007 MX of Nations. The quality of the video is not so great – we were still learning about compression and all that video / Internet stuff. But who remembers 2007 at Budds Creek?
USA won. Ryan Villopoto dominated – on a 250! That was exciting … although our video was less than stellar. It was one of my first times on camera, and then I lost my voice so Lex had to do the voice over. Sorry Lex! (Lex, your voice over is awful!) Ricky Carmichael and Tim Ferry were Ryan’s teammates that weekend.
And I’ll have more flashbacks on Nations for you in the next few days.
