Defending Champions Team USA with Aaron Plessinger, R.J Hampshire and Christian Craig will run the #1, #2 and #3 plates this weekend, as they will look to keep hold of the Chamberlain Trophy to get a second consecutive victory.

Team Captain Aaron Plessinger: “I learnt that from my first experience at the Motocross of Nations in 2018 that you have to expect the unexpected and need be ready for anything . We are really working as a team and get along very well and I’m looking forward to do some damage with them this weekend

The home team, Team France is all ready for this special Monster Energy FIM MXoN on their soil with one of the strongest trios of the pack with Romain Febvre, Tom Vialle and Maxime Renaux. They will be led and hugely helped by the experience of their team manager, Gautier Paulin who won five MXoN in a row.

Team France Manager Gautier Paulin: “I’m feeling confident and very happy with the team as the guys are doing an amazing job. The atmosphere and the crowd will help us throughout the event. There is no doubt in what our objectives are for this weekend, the win.”

Team Australia is coming to fight and come in Ernée to earn Australia, the first Chamberlain Trophy with Jett Lawrence, Hunter Lawrence and Dean Ferris.

Jett Lawrence: “We haven’t raced a lot of the other riders since last year so this is going to be exciting as my year has been unreal with a perfect season and hopefully, we’ll keep it going this week too”

With the 2023 MXGP World Champion Jorge Prado in their ranks, Team Spain will come with high confidence to make a great result. Ruben Fernandez and Oriol Oliver will complete the strong spanish team.

Jorge Prado: “I will ride a bit more relaxed this weekend compared to when I rode the whole year with the red plate. I love this track and it’s an honour to represent Team Spain and we have a really strong team this year. The goal is definitely to get on the podium.”   

     

Then came the moment to introduce the 37 teams participating in the battle for the Chamberlain Trophy this weekend. Each country proudly presented their trio of riders who will carry their flag at the 2023 Monster Energy FIM Motocross of Nations.
