2017 MOTOCROSS OF NATIONS | COMPLETE COVERAGE

It’s Saturday morning here at Matterley Basin, England, the site of the 2017 Motocross of Nations. The first order of business today was the ballot draw by the FIM that determines the gate pick teams will have for this afternoon’s qualifying motos. The completely random procedure (officials pull from two bowls of capsules, one with a country and one with a number, to determine the order) is deemed the fairest way to set the stage for today’s race. It’s drawn complaints from many over the years but has also made for incredible rides through the pack. Take a look at the results list below in the order the countries were pulled from the bowl.
