A staple of the Vintage Iron World Championships has been the Motocross des Nations race that allows visiting riders an opportunity to represent their country, their state or even their zip code in a three man team race. Some teams ride it for the fun of being involved while others are in it for the win. Either way the Motocross des Nations race is one not to be missed.
