The 2022 Motocross of Nations is coming back to the United States. At a press conference in Mantova, Italy, officials announced the FIM event would be held at the Red Bud Motocross track in Buchanan, Michigan next year. Red Bud last hosted the Motocross of Nations in 2018.
The United States team pulled out of this year’s event in Italy after COVID safety concerns.
Team Italy’s Antonio Cairoli, Mattia Guadagnini and Alessandro Lupino won this year’s event riding for KTM. It was bittersweet for Cairoli who announced retirement at the beginning of the weekend. His number- 222 will officially be retired. Cairoli has nine world championships since his start in 2004.
