Italy on course for Motocross of Nations.

At the beginning of last week an inspection was held at the Autodromo Daniel Bonara in Italy's Franciacorta region, to check on preparations for the Red Bull FIM Motocross of Nations on October 4.

The delegation - which included Youthstream president Giuseppe Luongo, FMI president Dr. Paolo Sesti, FIM race director Dave Nicoll and DBO President Danilo Boccadolce - declared that development of the brand new Motocross track and associated infrastructure was proceeding 'very well'.

The race track 'will be very wide and spectacular, matching all the security standards completely' while services and activates are being put in place for the estimated 50,00+ fans.

Youthstream is currently negotiating with the Italian Government in order to have Italy's Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi attending the opening ceremony together with other Ministers.

This year's Motocross of Nations will mark the 63rd edition of the event and the first time it has been held in Italy for 23 years.

Other pictures are available & this track has NO business hosting this race. One, this is a temporary track the MXdN should go to classic tracks as a reward for keeping the faith during hard times past. Second, it's a SX. There's too much SX influence on outdoor MX already, planet-wide, for the core MX fan. For the premier global MX event to go SX is to not "get it" at all. I say this from the USA where, whatever our team or it's quality, we stand to benefit from a SX-ish track design. Tragic. Part of the appeal of traveling to an MXdN is seeing one of the great GP tracks. Whoever was entrusted with this site selection has no understanding of MX's past & no role in it's future. Shame.
