Team USA’s Eli Tomac, Justin Cooper and Chase Sexton ended their 11-year wait with a win at the 2022 Monster Energy FIM Motocross of Nations!
While yesterday’s qualifying day presented the perfect weather conditions, race day was a different story, with an overnight downpour and continued rain throughout the day creating some challenging conditions which tested not only man but also machine – but did not hinder the spirits of the thousands of fans who showed their support! The atmosphere around the venue was next to none, with incredible support from start to finish by the huge crowd of fans that turned out in their most patriotic outfits and made plenty of sound throughout the day.
It was a big victory for the hosting nation, as Tomac, Cooper and Sexton made history by putting the American flag back on the top step for the first time since Saint Jean d’Angely in 2011.
