Tony Cairoli’s KTM 450SXF on American soil.
It is crazy to think that it is already October and the 2018 Motocross des Nations is here and in America. Red Bud is such a great venue to hold the MXDN. Mainly due to he hardcore motocross fans that reside within proximity of the track. These fans will be on par with the foreigners fog horns and cow bells.
Team USA hasn’t won an MXDN since 2011 in Saint-Jean-d’Angély when it was Ryan Dungey, Blake Baggett and Ryan Villopoto on the team. Team USA has never lost an MXDN on American soil. So the odds are in team USA’s favor this weekend.
Here are a few photos from our Chief Test rider Dennis Stapleton as he was roaming through the pits.
