We suggested yesterday that following the cancellation of the Motocross of Nations at Glen Helen in 2017, the MXoN could well be much closer to home – namely Matterley Basin. Well, the news has developed quickly and it’s great news for British motocross fans.

Youthstream has today confirmed in a press release that Great Britain will indeed host the 2017 Motocross of Nations at Matterley Basin in Winchester, but it could return to the USA very soon.

More when we get it but for now here’s the full press release:


Youthstream is pleased to announce the 2017 Monster Energy FIM Motocross of Nations will be held in Great Britain at the spectacular venue of Matterley Basin in Winchester.

Concerning the Monster Energy FIM Motocross of Nations to be held in USA, Youthstream is exploring possibilities for this event to be held in 2019 and discussions are under way to bring this unique event to a venue that is desired by the fans and the Motocross community.
