Australia first competed in the MXoN in 1984, when riders Stephen Call, Trevor Williams, David Armstrong and Vaughan Style Augiore traveled to Sweden to try it out with very little experience and a budget. Since then, Australia has always fielded a team, with riders such as Craig Dock, Glenn Bell and Jeff Leask finishing 4th in France in 1988, and more recently Chad Reed, Brett Metcalfe and Matt Moss finally joining the 3rd team in 2011.

Who drives where?

Mitch Evans will start in the MXGP class as expected, while Hunter Lawrence will do his best in the MX2 class. His younger brother and current leader of the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross MX2 Championship will try his luck in the open class. The team manager is Michael Byrne.

“This is a great team with talented drivers who are willing to give it their all for their country. Having Jed and Hunter ride a track they know in the US is a huge advantage and with Mitch in MX1 we see this trio as a red hot opportunity to take home our first MXoN title. We all wish the Australian team the best!
