It’s been a busy few days for Motocross of Nations announcements. Team Belgium was announced at Lommel, Team France made their announcement yesterday, and the United States will select their team this weekend at Unadilla. Add another country to the list, as Germany revealed their team today.
For the first time since 2013, Ken Roczen will return to the Motocross of Nations to captain the German team. Roczen led Germany to its first MXoN victory in 2012. In 2013, Roczen went 1-2 in his class, but Germany finished seventh due to a bad weekend from Dennis Ullrich. Roczen will race MXGP at RedBud on October 6-7.
Joining Roczen will be veteran Max Nagl. Now a member of factory TM, Nagl has struggled in the FIM Motocross World Championship this year, as he sits 12th in points, but he is a veteran of MXoN, and was part of the winning 2012 team. He will race Open.
Rounding out the team in MX2 will be Henry Jacobi. Jacobi rides for STC Racing Husqvarna in the FIM Motocross World Championship and currently sits ninth in points.
