Youthstream is pleased to announce that the 2010 Red Bull Motocross of Nations, will be run at the Thunder Valley Motocross Park facility, just outside metro Denver, in Lakewood, Colorado on September 25 & 26.
Only three years after the amazing success of Budds Creek, Maryland, that marked the last professional motocross appearance of the legendary Ricky Carmichael, the Red Bull Motocross of Nations will be back in the heartland of team USA, the winningest team of the last two decades.
Over 30 countries will send their three best riders to compete for the coveted ‘Chamberlain Trophy’ – the equivalent of ‘Olympic Gold’, as the Red Bull Motocross of Nations is also known as “The Olympics of Motorcycling”.
2010 will mark the 64th edition of this event, and this will be the third time it’s ever been held in the USA, following this year’s Franciacorta, Italy edition.
For this exciting return to the US soil Youthstream teams up with Thunder Valley Promotions, the company widely recognized best motocross organizer in the country for a strong and promising partnership.
A statement from Mr. Giuseppe Luongo, President of Youthstream:
“We are extremely proud to bring the prestigious Red Bull Motocross of Nations to the Denver area in 2010. In 2007, we brought the event to Maryland, and it was one of the most successful motorcycle races ever accomplished in the USA.
In 2008, we promised the entire world, both fans and industry, that we would return the event to the USA on a regular basis. Now, in 2009, we are glad to announce that we have fulfilled that goal, with the 2010 Red Bull Motocross of Nations being held in Lakewood, Colorado the last weekend of September.
We have communicated with riders, teams, industry, and fans. We have analyzed every aspect in choosing the proper venue – the infrastructure, the track promoter, the hotel availability, things to do in the city before & after the event, airport & access for fans that will attend from all over the world. Colorado and Thunder Valley Motocross meet all those standards and more.
I would like to thank both Mr. David Clabaugh, the owner of Thunder Valley Motocross Park, and Youthstream USA General Manager Mr. Mario Marini. Together, they have worked very hard to make this event a reality. I would also like to thank the FIM and AMA for their support in making this happen.
Together, we now have much work to do to make this the biggest & best motocross event ever in the USA, and quite possibly the world.”
Dr. Wolfgang Srb, President of the FIM Motocross Commission (CMS) said:
“This is a win – win – win situation for everybody. The biggest and most important Motocross race of the world returns to the USA, only a few years after the successful event in Budds Creek. This is brilliant news for the Motocross community and for all the fans.
“The FIM Motocross of Nations is the showcase of our sport and deserves to be staged on the best venues. Thunder Valley Motocross Park ranks around the top venues worldwide and will be a first class facility. Congratulations to all who made this most important deal possible!”
