HRC MX2 Michele Cervellin lines up on his CRF250RW alongside fellow Honda rider Alessandro Lupino and MXGP World Champion; Antonio Cairoli, to represent Italy in this weekend’s Motocross of Nations.
After missing the last two GP’s of the season due to groin strain, Cervellin will be back in action this weekend fighting with his team mates for national pride. The Motocross of Nations returns to Matterley Basin in the UK this year. The last time the ‘Olympics of Motocross’ was held here was in 2006. The track is famous for its stunning panoramic views which enables fans to watch the racing unfold from almost anywhere they are positioned around the track.

Action on track gets underway on Saturday 1st October for practice and qualifying. The racing gets underway on Sunday in three races pitting MXGP, MX2 and Open class riders against each other.
