MX des Nations: the USA returns to success! | Motocross – Enduro – Supermoto

Motocross of Nations – RedBud

Eli Tomac, Chase Sexton and Justin Cooper offered the United States their 23rd success on Sunday in the Motocross des Nations. Under the rain of RedBud, the 3 men easily won the final standings of the 75th edition of the most anticipated race of the season ahead of France and Australia. Italy and Belgium complete the top-5.

The United States hadn’t won the Motocross des Nations in 11 years, when Ryan Villopoto, Ryan Dungey and Blake Baggett won a memorable edition of the event at the Saint-Jean-d’Angély track in France. Since then, Roger De Coster’s proteges, despite having largely won the MX des Nations with 22 successes at the time (against 16 in Great Britain or 15 in Belgium) had never again managed to start with the famous Chamberlain Trophy.

Often far from fighting for victory or even for the podium in recent years, we thought that the US was losing interest in the event, that we would end up never seeing their best representatives there again. This year, with the two strongmen of the outdoor season Eli Tomac and Chase Sexton as well as Jett Lawrence’s most dangerous opponent on a regular basis this summer in 250cc, Justin Cooper, the Americans arrived on their land, ahead of the home crowd, with all the resources of their game to shine and win back this trophy that had eluded them for so long.

Winning bet for the trio managed by De Coster. The three men were consistently at the forefront of the 3 races and offered a clear victory in front of a solid French team with a very fast Marvin Musquin on the small 250, a solid Dylan Ferrandis, unlucky with a crash in the second race, and a Maxime Renaux who ended the day in style giving himself the luxury of beating Jett Lawrence and Chase Sexton in the 3rd round between MXGP and Open riders! With 3 points more, the Australia of the Lawrence brothers associated with Mitch Evans completes the podium.

The day started off with a bang for the Belgian clan with Jago Geerts’ superb second place in the first round of MXGP / MX2, the only man able to keep an eye on Eli Tomac, and the excellent 12th place of Liam Everts in the handlebar of his 250 SX-F. With these two results, Belgium immediately placed themselves among the favorites, occupying the provisional 3rd place.

The 13th and 14th place of Van Horebeek and Everts in the OPEN / MX2 heats have relegated Belgium to 5th place, a ranking that our country will maintain after the 3rd heat which translates into an 11th place for Geerts, author of a good recovery after a crash at the first corner, 12th for Van Horebeek. The fall of Geerts certainly costs Belgium 4th place as ours ends a small point behind the reigning champions, the Italians, who are therefore satisfied that RedBud reaches the foot of the podium.

Next year, the 76th Motocross des Nations will take place on the Ernée track in France.
