In 1999 the Motocross des Nations title was claimed by
Europe - going against all early predictions that favoured the USA.
However, in 2000 the team that crossed the Atlantic boasted
Travis Pastrana, Ricky Carmichael and Ryan Hughes - some of the hottest competitors
on the MX circuit - and this was their chance to put the “stars ‘n’ stripes”
back on top of the international podium.
The 54th running of the ‘battle of the dirt bike giants’ was
held in France, with 10 teams from all
around the globe competing on the demanding track at St Jean d’Angely. Many of
these teams featured former and current World Champions, including Italy which
was determined to capitalise on the historic win of the previous year.
Thousands of spectators were on hand to witness three
fantastic motos (125/Open, 125/250 and 250/Open) and this is where you can
catch the very best action and atmosphere from every round. The jumps are
spectacular, the cornering superb and the elbow-to-elbow racing awe inspiring -
these guys know no fear!
For the ultimate in motocross sport the Motocross des
Nations 2000 is a world-beater...in every sense. Don’t miss it!
Teams: USA, Italy, France, Belgium, South Africa, Australia,
