Following a disappointing performance one year ago in Belgium, Team USA began its quest for redemption today at the 67th running of the Motocross of Nations. The Talkessel facility in Teutschenthal, Germany, will host a landmark 41 countries this weekend at the world’s most important motocross event and Team USA heads into action with a chip on its shoulder.

Following a random ballot selection to determine starting positions, all 123 riders took to the track on Saturday afternoon for qualifying to see who will race for the coveted Chamberlain Cup on Sunday and what position on the gate they will do it from.
