Rider: Eli Tomac 

Eli Tomac is one of the most decorated riders in motocross history. He has won the 450cc AMA Supercross Championship twice and the 450cc AMA Pro Motocross Championship four times. Additionally, he’s clinched the 250cc AMA Supercross & AMA Motocross title once. He ranks second in 450cc AMA Supercross victories with 51 wins and stands third in 450cc AMA Motocross wins with 32.

UPCOMING MOTOCROSS OF NATIONSKen Roczen 2010 mxdn lakewood_-7

Ken Roczen will return to team Germany for the 2023 MXDN. Ken, whose schedule is usually inundated with racing, has taken a different approach this year. Usually, racing an entire Supercross season, followed directly by a whole Motocross season, the riders may feel burned out by the end and not want to do MXDN. But with a lighter schedule for Ken this year, he only decided to race Supercross. He ran the Monster Energy Supercross; he joined the WSX Series in Great Britain. Ken did race one Motocross event this year in preparation for the SuperMotocross playoffs. Well, now Ken is off to France to represent his Country of origin. Check out some of Ken Roczen’s last MXDN stats below.

The last time Ken Roczen won an MXDN was in 2012 when Team Germany overcame Team Belgium and Team USA to clinch the overall. Consistency would help them take that top position that year, as none of the riders would win a moto but still took the overall. Ken Roczen would go 5-4 in the 250 class, giving him a good enough score to take the overall. His teammates Max Nagl would grab second in the 450 class and Marcus Schiffer went 7-14 for 7th in the Open class. The combination of the results was enough to bring the team to victory.

The next year, Ken would return to Team Germany for a chance to win back-to-back Des Nations, but as a team event, every moto matters. Ken would go 2-1 in the 250 class, beating Eli Tomac after he ejected himself over a fast single. Ken’s teammate Max Nagl would also put up good results with Moto scores 11-4, placing himself in sixth. Unfortunately, the third rider of the squad, Dennis Ulrich, would run into issues in the Open class, resulting in moto scores of 40-39.  Ultimately, the team would end up seventh overall after this result.
