Team USA has won the 64th edition of the Motocross of Nations, this year held in the USA. The American team of Ryan Dungey, Trey Canard, and Andrew Short put on quite a performance in front of their home crowd.
There are three races in Motocross of Nations. The first race of the day – MX1 and MX2.
This race would feature the top American supercross and motocross racer Ryan Dungey, and World Motocross Champion Tony Cairoli – a race that many people all over the world have wanted to see. The race also featured America’s Trey Canard, France’s Marvin Musquin, and Germany’s Ken Roczen – all on the 250’s against the bigger bikes.
Ryan would go on to win this race. There was drama from the very start – Trey Canard crashed going into the first corner! Would Team USA’s hopes end before even the first lap had ended?
Trey put in maybe the ride of his life, coming from last to finish 12th in the moto. Against not only the 250 class riders, but the ‘big’ bike riders as well. Ken Roczen would score as top 250 rider, and, as mentioned earlier, Ryan Dungey won the moto. World Motocross Champion Tony Cairoli of Italy would finish second, and World 250 MX Champion Marvin Musquin would finish 39th – the victim of mechanical problems on the bike.
Right after this race, the media was informed that Tony Cairoli was feeling the combined effects of the weather (hot) and the altitude of the race track (over 1 mile in altitude, definitely takes some getting used to, because you are not able to get enough oxygen into your body as at sea level).
Race 2 would be – MX2 and Open. That would be 250cc bikes, and Open a rider can choose any size bike he and his team want. Most riders choose the big (350 to 500cc) bikes. Some of the ‘names’ now in the race because of the Open class – America’s Andrew Short, and New Zealand’s Ben Townley.
This race would have some drama as well. As you can see very well in the photos below, Andrew Short, who was leading had a run in with Ben Townley, who passed Short for the lead. Some on hand thought it was a bit of rough racing, but hard to say … you have two guys going for the lead … but Andrew ended up on the ground. And it took him a while to get going again.
Ben Townley would go on to win this race. Kyle Regal, racing for Puerto Rico finished second! Ken Roczen, racing a 250 would finish third. Canard was seventh. Max Nagl, also racing for Team Germany was fifth. Andrew Short finished 13th.
This set up the final race of the day – MX1 and Open. Germany was leading for the Championship! They had 28 points, USA was second with 33 points, and Belgium was third with 34 points.
Tony Cairoli and Ryan Dungey lined up right next to each other on the starting gate (as you can see in photos). But this was to be a battle between those three top teams. Staring away from the ‘best’ starting spots of the left hand side of the start gate, on the other side of the ‘dog house’ was Andrew Short.
At the end of lap one – it was Andrew Short and Ryan Dungey of Team USA running first and second – amazing! Dungey would pass Andrew for the lead, and then Townley would pass Short. It was Dungey first, Townley second, Short third. Later in the race, Townley would spin out in a corner, handing second back to Short, and American finished one-two in this moto. It didn’t matter what Team Germany or Team Belgium could do – America would win the overall with those scores of 1/2 in this race.
And that’s what they did – Team USA would win! Belgium takes second, and Germany third!
As far as individual performances, it was Ryan Dungey’s day. He proved that today, he was the best, winning both of his race. Ryan won the individual honors for MX1. Ken Roczen of Germany would be the best 250 (MX2) racer of the day, and Clement Desalle of Belgium was the individual winner of the Open class – all on Suzuki’s!
Here are the official results:
- USA: Dungey, Canard, Short
- Belgium: Ramon, Van Horebeek, Desalle
- Germany: Schiffer, Roczen, Nagl
- Great Britain: Nicholls, Wilson, Anderson
- Italy: Cairoli, Lupino, Monni
- Australia: Metcalfe, Ferris, Marmont
- France: Paulin, Musquin, Boog
- New Zealand: Coppins, Groombridge, Townley
- Portugal: Goncalves, Basaula, Correia
- Puerto Rico: Ruiz, Osborne, Regal

You remember. The 2012 Motocross of Nations. Lommel, Belgium.
Team USA was heavily favored coming into the event, to be held at the world famous Lommel sand track.
But the rest of the world had something to say about the matter. First, world champions Tony Cairoli and Jeffrey Herlings proved no one can ride the relentless & ever changing sand of Lommel like they can.
And, as German Team Manager Mr. Nagl had said all week “My boys can do it!” And his boys did it – winning the 2012 Motocross of Nations!
This article was originally published the day of the event, September 30, 2012.
Team Germany – Max Nagl, Kenny Roczen, and Marcus Schiffer, have won the 2012 FIM Monster Energy Motocross of Nations today in Lommel, Belgium. Top individual honors go to World Motocross Champion of MX1, Tony Cairoli.
The Motocross of Nations runs three motos – MX1 & MX2, MX2 & Open, and MX1 & Open as the finale.
Second overall today, Team Belgium – Clement Desalle, Jeremy van Horebeek, and Ken de Dycker.
USA’s win streak came to end, but even with bad luck, the team of Ryan Dungey, Blake Baggett, and Justin Barcia finished third.
Each year the “Nations” is held in a different country. The thing that made this year’s race unique in Belgium – the sand of Lommel. It’s deep, soft, rough, and relentless. Next year the Nations will be held in Germany.
The scoring at the Nations takes the best five out of six finishes for each team.
Earlier in the day …
Sunrise in Belgium. Not a cloud in the sky. Yesterday’s Qualification races had a packed house, the circuit jammed with spectators. At 7:30am this morning, the line of people waiting to get in is already huge.
And there is great anticipation in the air, because of the number of teams that feel they have a chance win the coveted Chamberlain Trophy. With USA struggling yesterday, that has given an even further boost to those teams.
The top contenders, in order of Qualifying yesterday – Germany, Belgium, Italy, Netherlands, France, Great Britain, and USA. And it’s the one time a year that the World Champions get to battle with America’s best – Cairoli and Herlings against Barcia, Baggett, and Dungey. Add in Belgium’s strong team of Desalle, van Horebeek and de Dycker. France’s Boog, Paulin and Musquin. Germany’s Roczen, Nagl and Schiffer. It’s going to be an exciting day!
First moto is MX1 and MX2 – Tony Cairoli (Italy) dominated. He led every lap. Gautier Paulin (France) second. Germany is leading country right now after this first race (Nagl and Roczen raced). USA had problems – Dungey crashed. Baggett crashed. Dungey gets seventh. Baggett gets 15th.
Race 2 – MX2 and Open. And Jeffrey Herlings destroyed this race – led every lap as did Cairoli in the first moto. The Sand King won by a large margin. Meanwhile, Team USA has problems again. Justin Barcia was dicing with Ken de Dycker early on, and the two literally collided – you could hear the noise their bikes made hitting each other. It left Barcia on the ground, and de Dycker with one less rider to worry about.
Belgium had some tough luck as well – Jeremy van Horebeek went out of the race early.
Baggett was working his way up for the USA, finishing sixth. Barcia recovered from his crash and was in the top five most of the race – until the very end – bad luck for the USA as Barcia pulls into pit lane – broken front wheel. Germany’s Roczen takes fourth. Teammate Marcus Schiffer seventh.
The final race of the day – MX1 and Open. And the early leader is … Tony Cairoli. Herlings is back in 16th. For USA, the first lap has Dungey in second, and Barcia in third. Next lap, Dungey crashes. HIt some big bumps wrong, and went thru the fencing on his left hand side of the track.
The track is so rough. Lap times are around 10 seconds per lap slower than earlier in the day for the fastest riders. Cairoli leads … but sand master Herlings has moved into second. It’s been a masterful day for the two world motocross champions (MX1 and MX2) and the Red Bull KTM squad.
With just a few laps to go, it’s quite fitting that individual honors on the day will come down to Cairoli and Herlings. Both riding the KTM 350. Cairoli is leading, but Herlings has closed up right behind him.
The running order for the title right now is Germany first, Belgium second, and USA third. Amazing considering all the problems both Belgium and America have had today.
Cairoli has done it. He’s won this moto, and top individual honors on the day. Herlings finishes second, and Justin Barcia third. Germany’s Max Nagl finishes seventh, Schiffer 14th to seal the deal for Team Germany.
Final Team Results – 2012 FIM Monster Energy Motocross of Nations – Lommel, Belgium
- Germany – Nagl, Roczen, Schiffer – 25 points
- Belgium – Desalle, van Horebeek, de Dycker – 29 points
- USA – Dungey, Baggett, Barcia – 39 points

Blake Baggett had some good quotes at the post race press conference. “The only place in the USA with sand like this in on public beaches. I’ve never ridden on anything like this before. And hats off to Germany and Belgium and Cairoli and Herlings – those guys are animals.”
USA Team Manager Roger De Coster had a good quote afterwards as well “Thanks to Tony Cairoli and Jeffrey Herlings for the riding lessons. And congratulations to Team Germany and Belgium.”
