It doesn’t get much bigger than repre-
senting your country at a sporting event
on the world stage. For our industry, the
Motocross of Nations (MXON) is that stage.
This year Justin Barcia, Cooper Webb and
Jeremy Martin represented the USA and
rode their hearts out! Defending champions
and host country France would eventually
win, but it was a knock-down, drag-out, bar-
banging battle till the final lap. Ben Townley
showed the world that he can still run up
front with the fastest riders and nabbed
a very impressive second-place finish in
the final moto. The French fans came out
in force to cheer Marvin Musquin, Romain
Febvre and Gautier Paulin to victory for the
second year in a row. We are already look-
ing forward to next year’s event.
