The 2018 Motocross of Nations MXoN post race

There was a lot of hype going into the event. Even though mother nature soaked the track, 81,700 spectators showed up to watch the event first hand. Jeffrey Herlings was crowned the MXGP world champion and Jorge Prado Garcia was crowned MXGP MX2 champion. The French team was coming off four MXoN victories in a row. The track was on American soil. So how would the Americans favor on their "home" track? With 22 MXoN throughout the event''s history, team USA was counting on a win. The odds weren''t in their favor since American hasn''t won the event since 2011.

Aaron Plessinger was crowned AMA 250SX West Region Monster Energy Supercross Champion and 2018 AMA 250 Motocross Champion.

Eli Tomac was crowned 2018 AMA 450 Motocross Champion.

The only US rider without a championship this year on the team was Justin Barcia, who has been riding really well all season.

The hero''s of the MXoN were the MXGP rider. Especially Glenn Coldenhoff, he was doing LaRocco''s leap in the mud. A lot of 450 rider don''t even try to triple it when it''s bone dry on a sunny day! In addition, he was able to win both motos he races (moto 2 and moto 3). With only two riders, because Calvin Vlaanderen was hit in the eye by a rock during the first race, team Team Netherlands was able to land on the podium and beat the American team.

Dubbla brillor på idag i starterna ????? drygt 3 timmar kvar till start! ???????????? Foto: @mxsmofficial / @r_christensen #mxinaction#mxsm#lagvm#redbud#muddrace#team#sweden#racing#motocross

?? F A S T E S T M A N O N T H E P L A N E T ?? After beating the top AMA riders last weekend in both moto's, and going 1 - 1 in the MXGP class at the motocross of nations against the current AMA national champ, and winning 17 out of the 19 MXGP races I've raced, standing on the podium 19 out of the 19 times this season, being crowned to the 2018 MXGP world champion, winning the Dutch national title with even going undefeated, I think I am able to say I was the fastest outdoor racer on the planet in 2018. Ofcourse I did not win all moto's I participated at, but I am only human aswell. But I have won 62 moto's out of the 77 moto's where I participated at this season. Everything will start all over again next year. Thank you 2 0 1 8 you was amazing to me. Now let's go eat hamburgers and drink some beers for a few weeks. ?? Thank you to all my fans all around the world for the great support and love what I got throughout the whole season and all my sponsors and partners for believing in me and supporting me in the best possible way. #MAXIMAALVUUR ???? @ktmfactoryracing @redbull @oakleymotorsports @jumbo @giampishow @knmv_motorbond @dodgeram.nl @hennekenskay @debrug.eu #Josmaas
