BLAST FROM THE PAST: DAVID BAILEY MOTOCROSS DES NATIONS 1983

The 1983 Motocross des Nations was the first effort out of the U.S. that wasn’t a full Honda effort. All of the manufacturers got on board with David Bailey (Honda), Mark Barnett (Suzuki), Broc Glover (Yamaha) and Jeff Ward (Kawasaki) representing the USA. David Bailey was in his second year as a Honda factory rider and he was dominating America with a Supercross title and a 250 National MX championship as well. This photo shows David, with a fresh evidence of a crash on his shoulder on the move.  He went on to hunt down Andre Vromans and win the second moto. Team USA won its third straight Motocross des Nations in Belgium.
