Motocross of Nations returns to America.

It has been announced that the 2010 FIM Motocross of Nations will be held at Thunder Valley Motocross Park in Lakewood, Colorado on September 25-26.

Only three years after the success of Budds Creek, which also marked the last professional motocross appearance by the legendary Ricky Carmichael (pictured), the Motocross of Nations will be back in the USA.

“This is a win-win-win situation for everybody,” said Dr. Wolfgang Srb, President of the FIM Motocross Commission (CMS). “The biggest and most important Motocross race in the world returns to the USA, only a few years after the successful event in Budds Creek. This is brilliant news for the Motocross community and for all the fans.”

2010 will mark the 64th edition of the event and the third time it has been held in the USA. This year's event will be held at Franciacorta, Italy.

“We are extremely proud to bring the prestigious Red Bull FIM Motocross of Nations to the Denver area in 2010,” said Giuseppe Luongo, President of Youthstream. “In 2007, we brought the event to Maryland, and it was one of the most successful motorcycle races ever accomplished in the USA.

“In 2008, we promised the entire world, both fans and industry, that we would return the event to the USA on a regular basis. Now, in 2009, we are glad to announce that we have fulfilled that goal, with the 2010 Red Bull FIM Motocross of Nations being held in Lakewood, Colorado the last weekend of September.

“We have communicated with riders, teams, industry, and fans. We have analyzed every aspect in choosing the proper venue – the infrastructure, the track promoter, the hotel availability, things to do in the city before & after the event, airport & access for fans that will attend from all over the world. Colorado and Thunder Valley Motocross meet all those standards and more.

“I would like to thank both Mr. David Clabaugh, the owner of Thunder Valley Motocross Park, and Youthstream USA General Manager Mr. Mario Marini. Together, they have worked very hard to make this event a reality. I would also like to thank the FIM and AMA for their support in making this happen.

“Together, we now have much work to do to make this the biggest & best motocross event ever in the USA, and quite possibly the world.”
