France Sunday in the American Red Bud for the fifth consecutive time the Motocross of Nations on her name written. Our neighbours (35 pts), with Gauthier Paulin, Dylan Ferrandis and Jordi Tixier as riders, brought it to Italy (37) and the Netherlands (41). The Belgian motorcrossers, the Red Knights (Jérémy Van Horebeek, Clement Desalle and Jago Geerts), runner-up in the final as the seventh (53).
After the second race were the riders of coach Johan Boonen still in second, but in the third series saw Van Horebeek (Open), and Desalle (MXGP) disappointing results with an eleventh and a 27th place and, as came the Knights go to the seventh place.
It is striking that the Netherlands, all three of the races in Red Bud won, but still only third in the final reckoning. Herlings (2x) and Coldenhoff won their series, but Calvin Flanders fell out in the first series and had a oogblessure forced to give up for the second series. Are bad result (36th) could not be deleted, and weighed heavily in the final standings.
