NEWS Thursday 23th August 2012 By Geoff Meyer

It's only a little over a month before the biggest Motocross race of the year is upon us. The 2012 Monster Energy Motocross of Nations. Set for the Lommel circuit in Belgium where Team USA took victory for the first time in 1981 this event has huge history. Here is some history of this great event.

The Motocross des Nations is an annual team motocross race, where riders representing their country meet at what is billed as the "Olympics of Motocross". The event has been staged since 1947, where the team of Bill Nicholson, Fred Rist and Bob Ray, representing Great Britain, took home the Chamberlain Trophy for the first time.

The event as it stands today is an amalgamation of three separate events, the original Motocross des Nations, raced with 500cc motorcycles, the Trophée des Nations, raced with 250cc motorcycles, and the Coupe des Nations, for 125cc motorcycles.

Before 1984, the three events were held in different locations on different weekends, whereafter they were combined into a single event with one rider per class. The scoring for the event works on the position system, i.e. first place is awarded one point, second place two, etc.
Each class (currently MX1, MX2 and Open) races twice, each time against one of other two classes, for a total of three races. The worst score of three races is dropped, and the lowest combined score wins.

The event's name has been officially anglicised (as Motocross of Nations "MXON") since 2004, when Youthstream was awarded promotional rights for the World Motocross Grand Prix, although the general moniker Des Nations or MXDN is still very much in use.

Historically Great Britain dominated the early years, before the competition became more fierce. With the rise of motocross in North America from the 1970s, the USA embarked on a famous winning streak, lasting 13 years from 1981 to 1993. They are currently on a seven year winning streak 2005 to 2011. Can they go to number eight in Lommel.

Yes it's a classic.
22 yrs ago and a young Stefan Everts was just starting to come into his prime.
I've never seen a rider to this day who could ride a 125 so smooth and effortless on such a gnarly sand track as Valkensward Holland.

It was the complete opposite of Jeff Stanton who after a bad start and a couple of crashes, literally carried Team USA on his back. With brute force, he slammed and bounced off everything and everyone in his way leaving some on the ground on his frantic last lap.

It was a race for the ages and just another reason the Moto D is the greatest race of the year! smile
