World Motocross Champion Tony Cairoli of Italy won the MX1 Qualifying Heat, Trey Canard of America won the MX2 Qualifying Heat, and Andrew Short of America won the Open class heat.

There is nothing quite like the Motocross of Nations. Photos, video, and words don’t do it justice. It’s a ‘vibe’ and ‘electricity’ that you must witness sometime in your life if you are a MX fan. It’s a first class, top notch production in every way possible.

Motocross of Nations - Saturday (And ACTION!) - Photo 1 of 16Heat race winners Andrew Short, Trey Canard, and Tony Cairoli

In MX1, Tony Cairoli won handily. Which should come as no surprise, since Tony is the 2010 World Champion of the premiere MX 1 Grand Prix motocross series. Ryan Dungey started around eighth, and moved up to fourth position by the end of the 20 minute plus two lap moto. Brett Metcalfe rode well to second in this race, for Australia.

The best race of the day certainly was the MX2 class, with a battle between Trey Canard, and Team Germany’s Ken Roczen. Trey led most of the race, Ken passed him with three laps to go, and then fell on the last lap, leaving the door wide open for Trey to take the win in front of the enthusiastic home crowd. Ken finished second. MX2 World Motocross Champion Marvin Musquin of France was fifth.

And in the Open class, American rider Andrew Short, literally racing on his ‘home’ track, won convincingly. Ben Townley was a strong second for New Zealand.

The photo below shows the three heat race winners (Short, Canard, Cairoli) and the video (coming ASAP!) below shows you just ACTION from Saturday’s Qualifying.
