CHECK OUT RYAN VILLOPOTO’S 2002 YAMAHA YZ250 FOX HILLS VMXDN RACE BIKE

2022 FOX HILLS MOTOCROSS DES NATIONS

The 2022 Vet Motocross Des Nations at Fox Hills is happening this weekend in England. As usual, Motocross Action’s Dennis Stapleton is there to cover the action and race the event himself on a 2000 Honda CR250 two-stroke in the EVO Plus class, which allows riders of any age to compete on bikes from in the model year range from 1997-2002. Also, he got invited to fill-in for an injured rider on Team Belgium in the VMXdN Team Race, and for that, he’ll be on a 2001 Kawasaki KX250.

The races are set to go Saturday and Sunday, August 27th and 28th. Before things got underway, Dennis scoured the pits with his camera to show off the hard work that many vintage tuners did in preparation for this race.
