St. Jean d’Angely

The last ‘big’ race here at St. Jean was the ‘biggest’ – The FIM Motocross of Nations. In September, Team USA of Supercross and Motocross Champion Ryan Villopoto, former Supercross and MX Champion Ryan Dungey, and Blake Baggett, managed by the legendary Roger De Coster, won the prestigious Chamberlain Trophy. Here you can revisit that 2011 Motocross of Nations won by Team USA at St. Jean.

One thing you can count on at an MX GP in France – a huge crowd, and big support for the home country riders. In this 2012 edition, it will be ‘home’ riders like Christophe Pourcel, Gautier Paulin, Jordi Tixier, Seb Pourcel, Xavier Boog.
