The revamped Motocross of Nations track at Matterley Basin has been revealed in its final form, and given a shakedown test by Team GB’s Dean Wilson and Tommy Searle, as well as two Americans representing Puerto Rico, Darien Sanayei and Marshal Weltin. Team GB’s Max Anstie couldn’t ride as he didn’t have a race bike ready.

The circuit has been lengthened, with a whole new loop added to take the circuit nearer to the spectators. And there’s a brand new BMX-style downhill start, bowl turn, rhythm section and lots more. And with the infield being covered in grass, it looks like an amazing venue that should attract the biggest MX crowd of the year in the UK – and possibly Europe.

Tommy Searle will be riding a KX250F at the MXDN.

Wilson, who has been riding on various tracks in the UK in the past two weeks, was pleased to finally get his first laps at the circuit near Winchester. He said: “The jumps are massive! But it’s lots of fun to ride. I can’t wait for the racing to start.”
