How To Watch Motocross Of Nations

Cycle News Staff | September 26, 2019

The 73rd running of the Monster Energy FIM Motocross of Nations gets underway this weekend, September 28-29, in Assen, The Netherlands, with qualifying taking place Saturday and the three championship motos on Sunday. This year’s race takes place at the TT Circuit Assen, and the home team has to be the favorite to take home the Chamberlain Trophy. It will be difficult for any team to deny The Netherlands its first MXoN title, especially when you consider who its three riders are: Jeffrey Herlings, Glenn Coldenhoff, and Calvin Vlaanderen, all top riders in this year’s FIM Motocross World Championship. Herlings, though, sat out most of the championship with an injury but came back and won the last two MXGP rounds. Team USA–Zach Osborne (Open class), Justin Cooper (MX2), and Jason Anderson (MXGP)–will have its hands full if it intends to bring the trophy back to the U.S. for the first time since 2011.

Last year’s champ, Team France, returns with riders Gautier Paulin, Jordi Tixier, and Maxime Renaux.
