RED BUD MOTOCROSS DES NATION IS SIX DAYS AWAY: WHO’S WHO?

The 2018 Motocross des Nations will be held in the United States at the Red Bud track in Michigan on October 6-7, 2018. If you are going to attend expect some rain—after all, it is Michigan in the Fall.

Martin Barr (left) is the only original rider on Team Ireland who will be at Red Bud this coming weekend. Stuart Edmonds and Graeme Irwin got injured after the team was announced.

European countries are used to having the MXDN held on the continent, so many of them were not able to afford to send their teams to the USA (now they know how Team USA feels every year)—most notably Team Denmark (which is a shame because Thomas Kjer Olson finished third in this year’s 250 World Championship). Other countries that have attended before or currently host MXGP rounds, but will not come to Red Bud included Turkey, Indonesia, Latvia, Bulgaria, Finland, Poland, Iran, Israel, Lithuania, Norway, Morocco, Greece, Russia, Slovenia, San Marino, Mongolia, Luxembourg and Hungary.
