Motorcycling Australia (MA) is pleased to announce the team that will represent Australia at the 2010 Motocross of Nations (MXoN) to be held in Colorado, USA on 26 September 2010.
Australian Team – 2010 Motocross of Nations:
MX2: Dean Ferris
Reserve: Kirk Gibbs
As recently announced, the Fédération Internationale de Motocyclisme (FIM) regulations stipulate that in 2010 the maximum age for the MX2 class rider is 23 years, meaning that riders born before 1 January 1987 were not able to be selected for the MX2 class.
The 2009 MXoN was claimed by the USA, represented by Ryan Dungey, Ivan Tedesco and Jake Weimer, while Australia will be looking to better their seventh place finish when the 2010 event takes place in September.
