Spanish Monster Energy FIM MXoN Team Announced

The team that will defend the colours of Spain in the most important race of the year, the Monster Energy FIM Motocross of Nations, which, this year, will be held at the Redbud MX track in the USA on the weekend of September 24 and 25, has already been defined.

The three pilots selected by Paco Rico make us dream of achieving very important things. Captaining the Spanish army, in the MXGP category, will compete the two-time MX2 World Champion and Red Bull GasGas Factory rider, Jorge Prado. Rubén Fernández, the HONDA rider who also knows what it's like to get on the MXGP podium this year and who is demonstrating a very high level and magnificent state of form, will rider in the Open category, while the rider in the MX2 category will be Guillem Farrés.

The team will have as reserve rider José Antonio Butrón, current leader of the EMXOpen European Championship and champion of Spain in EliteMX1 this year, ready to defend, if necessary, the colours of Spain in any of the three categories as he has done so many times before.

Paco Rico, national coach: “We are possibly one of the youngest teams on the grid and made up of top-level drivers who can make us dream of everything this year. I hope you have a good day and can show your potential and involvement with the Spanish team. I am very clear that this new generation of riders has many numbers to take us to finally step on the drawer in these coming years. We have already seen Jorge and Rubén climb the podium together this year in MXGP and Guillem has shown his level internationally in MX2, something that has not gone unnoticed by the big teams and a very promising future awaits him. I am sure they will give everything to achieve a great result. I want to thank the total support and effort of the RFME so that the Spanish team is present in the MXON of the USA”.
