MXoN To Thunder Valley in 2010

Cycle News Staff | August 14, 2009

If you missed the Motocross of Nations three years ago at Budds Creek, Maryland, then start making plans now for the 2010 edition, which will once again visit the United States. Youthstream has just announced that the Red Bull FIM Motocross of Nations – the most prestigious of all international motocross races – will take place at Thunder Valley Motocross Park, just outside metro Denver, in Lakewood, Colorado, on September 25 & 26

Over 30 countries will send their top three riders to compete for the coveted ‘Chamberlain Trophy’ – the equivalent of ‘Olympic Gold’, to take on the Americans, which, by the way, happen to be the winningest team of the last two decades.

2010 will mark the 64th edition of this event, and this will be the third time it’s ever been held in the USA, following this year’s Franciacorta, Italy edition.

For this exciting return to the US soil Youthstream teams up with Thunder Valley Promotions, the company widely recognized best motocross organizer in the country for a strong and promising partnership.

According to Mr. Giuseppe Luongo, President of Youthstream, “We are extremely proud to bring the prestigious Red Bull FIM Motocross of Nations to the Denver area in 2010. In 2007, we brought the event to Maryland, and it was one of the most successful motorcycle races ever accomplished in the USA.

“In 2008, we promised the entire world, both fans and industry, that we would return the event to the USA on a regular basis. Now, in 2009, we are glad to announce that we have fulfilled that goal, with the 2010 Red Bull FIM Motocross of Nations being held in Lakewood, Colorado the last weekend of September.

“We have communicated with riders, teams, industry, and fans. We have analyzed every aspect in choosing the proper venue – the infrastructure, the track promoter, the hotel availability, things to do in the city before & after the event, airport & access for fans that will attend from all over the world. Colorado and Thunder Valley Motocross meet all those standards and more.


“I would like to thank both Mr. David Clabaugh, the owner of Thunder Valley Motocross Park, and Youthstream USA General Manager Mr. Mario Marini. Together, they have worked very hard to make this event a reality. I would also like to thank the FIM and AMA for their support in making this happen.

“Together, we now have much work to do to make this the biggest & best motocross event ever in the USA, and quite possibly the world.”

“The Red Bull FIM Motocross of Nations is the showcase of our sport and deserves to be staged on the best venues,” adds Dr. Wolfgang Srb, President of the FIM Motocross Commission (CMS). “Thunder Valley Motocross Park ranks around the top venues worldwide and will be a first class facility. Congratulations to all who made this most important deal possible!”
