The next weekend of the day September 30th The world's greatest exponent of motocross competitions will be held, the fiercest battle for countries each year where the best riders in the world face off face to face, the only race that measures the strength of the riders participating in the Motocross World Championship against those of the World Supercross Championship and AMA Motocross. It reaches Lommel, Belgium, the Motocros of Nations 2012 (MXoN).
A total of 33 nations they will beat the copper on the sandy Belgian circuit where we hope there is more color than that of the American flag. This year we will not have the names of the all-powerful Ryan Villopoto, nor James "Bubba" Stewart, nor Chad Reed, nor Ricky Carmichael in the ranks of the American team, but the entries are not exactly turkey. Ryan dungey in MX1 (the only one who repeats and defender of the title), Blake baggett in MX2 and Justin barcia in Open they will be under the command of a motocross legend, Roger de coster, to try to take the title of best crossera nation to the other side of the pond for the eighth time in a row. Greedy
From the European side of the contest, the most prominent teams to stand up to the American offensive with their teams will be France (Cristophe Pourcel, Marvin Musquin and Gautier Paulin), Germany (Max Nagl, Ken Roczen and Marcus Schiffer), and Belgium (Clement Desalle, Jeremy Van Horebeek and Ken De Dycker).
Jonathan Barragán in MX1, Jose Antonio Butrón in MX2 and Álvaro Lozano in Open will be our delegates in this entourage almost repeating the table of last year and commanded again by Josep Alonso. Hopefully we will have learned from sultry show than last year The Spanish Motorcycling Federation offered him, claiming that there was no money to travel to France, forcing riders to pay out of pocket the cost of participating in a world-class event.
Beyond staying in a mere matter of costs, the ball got bigger when they made the pilots tocomocho with the passes for the access of the personnel and taking them to take out the 2,000 euros that Youthstream gives each federation for team expenses as well as cash prizes for the top twelve. I repeat, when all the expense was assumed by the three pilots representing our country. Be that as it may, we wish them the best and we hope they surpass the eighth place last year. They deserve it.
My baton for him MXoN 2012 it is:
