Hello,

In 2006, RacerX online published a video of team USA riders at the MXdN. It had James Stewart, Ryan Villopoto and Ivan Tadesco. The song was “Bittersweet Symphony” by Beck. It has been about ten years since I last saw the video, but it stands out as one of my all time online video favorites.

Does anyone know if it is still online anywhere? I’ve tried to find it on and off over the past decade. With the 2018 team announced it has me thinking about it again.

Here you go.

(And the song is by The Verve, not Beck.)

I've always loved this one too, mainly for Joel Robert's facial reaction at 2m 53s.

Gotta love Joel Robert's grin and JS7 giving a few love taps to the trophy. Hard to believe that was twelve years ago.

There's something happening here, what it is ain't exactly clear.

Man, i remember this like it was yesterday! My first proper race i went to spectate. I was 12 at the time, and didnt really have an idea what the MXDN was about, but when the you were caught in race traffic for hours and hours beforehand and people were abandoning their cars, you knew it was a big deal. The whole day was nuts, huge crowds, special atmosphere. IMHO matterley basin is one of the best circuits in the world. I know alot of the top riders think the same.

LIT!
