AMERICA STRIKES BACK

AMERICA STRIKES BACK


Team USA won the Motocross des Nations over the weekend in stunning fashion. And why not? It was a strong team consisting of two newly crowned national champions (Travis Pastrana and Ricky Carmichael), a top GP rider (Ryan Hughes), and coached by a five-time world champion (Roger DeCoster). Carmichael went 1-2, Hughes went 1-5 and Pastrana went 10-15 on his RM125. Remember, the 125s are scored against the 250s and open bikes. That gave the U.S. a score of 19, while Italy was a distant second with 36. The home-town French team was knocked out of contention by two DNFs from Frederick Bolley.
