Strongest teams are definitely USA, France, Germany and the Netherlands. Those I think are the top four. No idea in what order, but if I had to put my money on it I would go for the US of A.

A bit baised, but I hope the Dutchies wil get it, would be about time.

9/10/2018 8:34 AM

A lot of pressure on the USA this time round. They'll probably nudge it. Obviously rooting for Team GBR, wouldn't be surprised if they reach the top 5.

Team Guam vs Team Puerto Rico in B-Final fighting for the first spot

|

9/10/2018 9:09 AM

It's surreal looking at the Team Puerto Rico entry.

9/10/2018 9:32 AM

Tanel Leok...............again!!
He's gotta receive some sort of special honor, I saw him on the entry list 2001 Namur and not sure if that was even his first time?!!!
Crazy thing is he could probably break into the top 10? With a bit of luck.

Tanel was 15 when he first raced MXdN. I believe this is his 18th time in a row representing Estonia so 2000 was probably his first event. He's 33 now.

Hopefully Estonia has a few promising amateurs that will one day be able to represent their country. They can't keep sending Leok unless he's The Terminator.

I still don't get Team The Netherlands team , with Calvin Vlaanderen . South African , racing for the Netherlands. I get the whole dual citizenship thing , but it kinda open's a whole new can of worm's. I dig the hell out of Calvin , and am glad he's racing.....but why not for South Africa?

And there goes Jeffro. One of God's own prototypes. A super high-powered mutant of some kind never even considered for mass production. Too weird to live, and too rare to die.

"The Terminator" I like that name for Leok, bearing in mind how many people were getting upset about being beaten by Estonia and most probably Tanel in a previous post laughing whistling

Apparently he fell out with the South African federation - see here https://exhaust.racerxonline.com/2018/08/14/why-the-dutch-can-win-the-motocross-of-nations

I used to be indecisive, but now I'm not so sure.

9/10/2018 12:23 PM

Didn’t Roostier Haulin get hurt in that last MX GP? I thought France was going to have to replace him?

Amazing. Especially in a row.
Max Nagl also has done a lot. Definitely most of them until today, starting in 2005 or 2004

Dean Wilson rode for Canada and GB as well, if you have the passport for that country you can race,

did Calvin ever race for South Africa?

so reed didn't quite make the guam team either eh? I didn't have real expectations of it, but did think it would be cool to see him there

Deanos deal was a Crock. Maybe he never raced in Scotland? I dunno, but all this mix and match shit removes the whole damn point of Nation against nation and passports and dual citizenship be damned.

Reeds not an American by birth. Puerto Rico and Guam have nobody from either place. What if other countries like Canada or France started hiring non born and bred people? The race is becoming the Motocross of Musical Chairs.

France could get Musquin on one of its island territories teams and get a few others to race for France like we do for P.R. and Guam, and really confuse this whole mess.

My post is my opinion. If you don't agree with it, I'm OK with it.

So you think only natural born citizens are a true representation of a Country? I agree the system seems to be flawed but I don’t agree that only natural born citizens should qualify.

It's nation against nation. It would be different if the guy moved to say the US as a toddler and never raced anywhere else, but when you grow up somewhere, race your whole life there, and then move to Europe(Reed), and race as an adult, and then move again, you've defeated the purpose of the race if you aren't racing for your home country.

You've just turned it into another race with dudes from wherever.

He planned to go racing for South Africa, but there were differences about him riding for the RSA flag in the GPs so he said F you guys and now races under the Dutch flag. He does hold a Dutch passport so he is eligible.

He has a Dutch passport and had the support of the Dutch federation for a long time.

Germany could be strong IF Nagl is able to ride and is fit. I thought he had another surgery last week, so I'm not sure if he can even participate. And if he does, he didn't show much potential with the TM and without race rhytm I don't think he'll be able to even make top 15.
And for Jacobi, did he even had 1 weekend this year with 2 solid results? He always seems to crash or whatever....

To me USA and Netherlands are the two strongest teams. For 3rd place it will go between France and England I think. But hey it the Nations, strange results garanteed.

Edit: I forgot Belgium. They can fight for a podiumspot too

|

9/11/2018 2:07 AM

Well, USA, France, Netherlands, Belgium, UK, Germany, Australia, Italy, Switzerland, Canada, Estonia, Sweden, Ireland, Spain, Austria, Venezuela, Brazil, New Zealand and Czech Republic are certainties for the A-final according to me.

B-Final will go between Guam, Japan and Argentina I think.

Little prediction:
1. USA
2. Netherlands
3. Belgium
4. France
5. UK

|

9/11/2018 2:38 AM

1. USA
2. France
3. Netherlands
4. Belgium
5. GB

There are only really 3 contenders for the win for me and USA are the strongest of the 3 along with the Netherlands and France.

After that, it's going to be really close. Belgium, GB, Italy, Germany are all very close on paper and their won't be much difference between finishing 4th or 8th. One of those teams could even sneak onto the box

A huge bummer for Austria.
Sandner & Neurauter out with injurys.

Could've been a good year for us.

Bummer. They could still send Roland Edelbacher and Michael Kratzer if they want to. A young team that can get some experience.

I think so but I'm not 100% sure.

I think they will replace Sandner with Edelbacher and Neurauter with Johannes Klein

9/11/2018 7:43 AM

Hofer, Edelbacher, Sandner etc. Austria has a bright future ahead of them in the MXd(o)N)!
