Motocross of Nations entry list

A record breaking entry list of 108 riders from 36 teams have signed up to do battle in the 2009 Red Bull FIM Motocross of Nations in Franciacorta, Italy, on October 3-4.

Leading the list will be defending champions the USA, whose weaker than usual line-up of Ryan Dungey, Jake Weimer and Ivan Tedesco means the European teams - led by home nation Italy and new MX1 world champion Antonio Cairoli - have a real chance of success.

Other world champions confirmed include Ramon (Belgium), Philippaerts (Italy), Reed (Australia) and Rattray (South Africa), plus young guns such as Musquin and Paulin (France), Roelants and Desalle (Belgium), Tonus (Switzerland) and Karro (Latvia).

Two of the youngest riders will be 15 year old sensations Roczen (Germany) and Herlings (Netherlands) - the latter will only turn 15 on September 12.

“I am simply stunned. What more can I say?” commented FIM/CMS President Dr. Wolfgang Srb. “36 Nations have entered, from all continents in the world. The highest number of entries in history. This will be the biggest and greatest Motocross event of all time. The fans have named this event the "Olympics of Motocross" for years, and they are right.”
