Monday Kickstart – 2008 Motocross of Nations

‘Cuz it’s Monday somewhere…

Another Red Bull Motocross of Nations is in the books and the Chamberlain Trophy will once again be spending a year on American soil. We have been working our asses off to get you all the best coverage of the biggest motocross race in the world. With over 60,000 dedicated spectators from about every country imaginable on hand roaring all weekend long, it was quite easy to stay motivated. The energy of the crowd spread throughout the pits and onto the track, and the racing was, well…awesome. Zach Osborne came alive, Gieger made history, Bubba finished outside the top twenty in the final moto, and Sebastien Pourcel, well, he’s French.

32 teams competed in this year’s Red Bull Motocross of Nations, but not all get to make the main program. For those teams not inside the top 19, a “B” Final race decides a winner and they fill the final spot in the main event. Antonio Balbi Jr. and his Brazilian teammates came away with the win in the B Final and earned the final spot in the main program.
