Breaking news … The Italian Motorcycling Federation has determined that World Motocross Champion Tony Cairoli, and former World Motocross Champion David Philippaerts will not ride at 2010 Motocross of Nations in the USA

As is in a strange case such as this, politics and money are at issue.

The Italian Federation has instructed both Tony Cairoli and KTM, along with David Philippaerts and Yamaha, that they must wear the jerseys that the Italian Federation has determined, with the Federations sponsors in the primary positions located on the jersey. They have ‘negotiated’ with the riders and the teams for each that they would receive two ‘spots’ on each arm of the jersey for their own existing team sponsors.

Tony, KTM, David, and Yamaha have determined that they, and their teams, spend and receive an extraordinary amount of money to represent themselves and their sponsors to the fullest.

Tony, KTM, David, and Yamaha decided that it was not in their best interest, nor their teams and sponsors to ride in the most important single motocross event of the year with out representing them.

In turn, The Italian Federation has now stated that Tony and David are not part of the Italian team, because they will not wear the jerseys that the Federation has ‘negotiated’.

This is unfair to fans of motocross worldwide. We hope this gets resolved ASAP, so that fans around the world can see the very best riders in the world compete at this year’s Nations, and, both Tony and David have proven that they are two riders that undoubtedly should be representing Italy.

We are guessing we will hear more about this issue in the future.

2010 Motocross of Nations – Six Riders to Watch (Musquin FRANCE)

2010 Motocross of Nations - Six Riders to Watch (Musquin FRANCE) - Photo 1 of 2The 2010 Motocross of Nations will be held for the third time ever in the USA, this coming September just outside of Denver in Lakewood, Colorado. The Motocross of Nations is the biggest and most prestigious motocross event of the year, with each country sending it’s top three racers to compete as ‘National’ teams. It’s less than two months away!

Some call it the ‘Olympics of Motorcycling’, but we think of it more like the World Cup. Which country will emerge victorious after the battle?

There are plenty of great racers to watch. Although the national teams have yet to be fully selected, we present to you six riders that we feel will be there, will be fun to watch, and each of them from a different country. Each has his own unique style … his own unique personality … and we feel are going to be very exciting to watch!
