National Teams for the 2010 Red Bull FIM Motocross of Nations Have Been Announced

31 Countries Are Primed and Ready to Challenge Reigning Champion Team USA

LAKEWOOD, Colo. As the month of September officially begins, the countdown to the 2010 Red Bull FIM Motocross of Nations from Thunder Valley Motocross Park is heating up. In just a few weeks, the best motocross riders from across the globe will converge on Lakewood, Colo., for the biggest, most exciting professional motocross event in the world.

In a recent announcement, Youthstream revealed the lineups for all 32 countries that will compete just outside of Denver on the final weekend of September. The three-rider teams are littered with the biggest names in the sport, including riders from both the U.S.-based Lucas Oil Motocross Championship and the European FIM World Motocross Championship.

Team USA leads the way after capturing its fifth straight win at the prestigious event last season in Italy. Rockstar/Makita Suzuki’s Ryan Dungey returns as Team Captain for the U.S. in the MX1 class, just one year after leading the team to victory. Joining the newly crowned 450 Class Champion of the Lucas Oil Motocross Championship are a pair of his American motocross counterparts that will each be making their respective debut at the Olympics of Motocross.

Honda Red Bull Racing’s Andrew Short is a veteran of the sport and coincidentally enough, a native of the state of Colorado. Thunder Valley serves as the eight-year pro’s home track and there isn’t a better place in the world for Short to make his first appearance as a competitor in the MX3 class. Rounding out the impressive Team USA lineup is GEICO Powersports Honda’s Trey Canard. The third-year rider had experienced a breakout season in 2010 and has risen to become the top 250cc rider in the U.S., making him the obvious choice for the MX2 class.
