Today at the Unadilla National team USA was announced for the 2017 Motocross of Nations. As it is unfortunate a few of Americas top riders have denied to race, Cole Seely (450 class), Zach Osborne (250 class) and Thomas Covington (450 Open class) have stepped up to the challenge.
Zach Osborne and Thomas Covington have raced the Motocross of Nations before, but not for the USA. They raced for Team Puerto Rico in the past. For all the riders, however, racing at Matterley Basin on October 1st will be the first time they get to represent their home country. Roger DeCoster, as usual, will lead the team.
