Good News for Motocross Fans (that’s me 🙂 – hopefully you too!)
Kit Palmer of Cycle News reported on 01/17/2008 that Giuseppe Luongo (President of Youthstream) has plans to start bringing two (2) FIM World Motocross (MX) events to the U.S. starting in 2009, then again in 2011, with 2 rounds per year continuing through 2016. They also have plans starting in 2010 to bring the Motocross of Nations (MXoN, aka MXdN) back to the U.S. every third (3rd) year.
As an added bonus, they also have plans starting in 2010 to bring the Supermoto of Nations (SMoN) to the U.S., which will be held the same week as the MXoN (usually in September).
The locations of the events are still unknown with the exception of the following information:
“As far as where Youthstream plans on hosting the MX of Nations and the GP rounds in the U.S. is still a bit of a mystery, though Luongo did say that all of the U.S. MX of Nations and GP rounds (except for the California GP) will be held at the same track “east of the Mississippi,” and it will not be at any track already on the AMA National MX schedule.”

I don’t know about the rest of you, but this is exciting! I was able to attend the 2007 MXoN @ Budds Creek this last September, and it was an awesome event. The International fans were awesome, as was the event. So this to me is some additional icing on the cake. Besides, I love to travel…
Road Trip anyone???
