Eric Geboers, former World Champion and 2012 MXoN promoter explained: ‘I'm happy to finally see the "face" of the event we've been working on for quite some time now. It's the start on which we can build our marketing campaign, which we will launch at the first GP of Valkenswaard. It's not the start of the preparations though, my team and I have worked hard throughout the winter and the past GP's to get the MXoN 2012 shaped up to be an unforgettable event. We're proud of Youthstream's faith in our organizing skills to host this magnificent race, and we will make sure fans won't be disappointed when they go home after the event on September 30th. The Monster Energy Motocross of Nations will be an outstanding experience for any race fan!’
Jamal Benmiloud, Marketing Director at Monster Energy added: ‘The Motocross of Nations is one of the biggest festivals in motorsport thanks to the passion of the fans and the spectacle they generate. Watching the best talent in the world line up in front of all that colour and noise gives us at Monster Energy just the same buzz. It’s a tribute to the sport that it can generate so much anticipation before the season even starts and no doubt the 2012 Motocross of Nations will bring us even more excitement.’
