The Motocross of Nations is coming back to the U.S. this weekend at Budds Creek, Maryland. If you are at all interested in motocross, this is an event well worth seeing since the best riders from all over the world will be there. 99 riders in 33 teams should make for quite an event.
The Motocross of Nations is the premier motocross event sanctioned by the Federation Internationale de Motocyclisme (FIM) and features an annual competition among National teams fielded by many of the FIM’s affiliated federations. Established in post-war Europe in 1947, the famed event has run uninterrupted since that time.
The 61st renewal of the world’s longest-running motocross championship will be held September 22-23, 2007, in scenic Southern Maryland, at Budds Creek Motocross Park. This will mark just the fourth time in all those years that the Motocross of Nations has ventured beyond Europe…the others were New York State in 1987, Western Australia in 1992 and tropical Brazil in 1999.
Budds Creek is one of the best tracks with great viewing everywhere so if you can make it to Maryland, the trip is well worth it.
