Team Japan have confirmed the three riders they will be sending to the 2022 Monster Energy FIM Motocross of Nations in Red Bud, USA on the 24th and 25th of September!

Oshiro Kainosuke will head the team in the MXGP class. The 22-year-old was the Champion in all of the Japan MX2 class last season and later switched to MX1 for this year and is the most powerful rider in Japan with his first victory last month.

Shimoda Jo will participate in MX2, which is an important position as an ace. The 20-year-old Shimoda, has two wins in the AMA MX250.

Toriyabe Kota will participate in the Open category. The 24-year-old is the oldest rider on the team and has improved his skills by competing in the Australian Championships and is now in contention for the top spot at All Japan MX2.

In the past, Japan's best results were 6th place in France in 2000 and Belgium in 2003, with the team looking to put in another strong performance this time around in America.

Team Manager is former Suzuki Factory rider and JMX race director Takateru Atsuta, who is the brother of Yoshitaka Atsuta, who raced in MXGP from 2002 to 2005.
