The 71st running of the storied Motocross of Nations (MXoN) ran this past weekend, with Dragon’s Zach Osborne representing—and captaining—Team USA. Hot on the heels of his second consecutive Championship win in August, Zach was in peak form and performed the best of the underperforming US team. Osborne ended up taking 2nd overall in the MX2 category at Matterley Basin, ENG, with a podium performance in his second Moto.

“Overall [I’m] happy. It was a great experience,” Zach told RacerX’s Open Mic. “It was tough conditions for anyone today. It’s something we don’t see a lot in America. I hope to have the chance to come back again and get a little revenge. I think [sic] personally I rode well. In the second moto today I felt like I rode really, really good. Yesterday I felt like I rode really well also. It’s a tough race to win. It was going to be tough from the get-go for us period. So, it’s a bit disappointing but at the same time we can’t be too bummed.”

Osborne finished with a 10-3 stat line on the weekend, and while it pales in comparison to his 2017 results, he can walk away with his head held high. “All in all a great experience and I’m grateful to have had the opportunity to be here and ride for Team USA,” Osborne put.

Current 250cc Supercross champ and leading 250cc Motocross rider Zach Osborne has been named to Team USA for the Motocross of Nations (MXoN) roster. Zach will race in the MX2 category for USA, along with Cole Seely (MXGP) and Thomas Covington (MX2). Additionally, Zach will be Team Captain for the squad.

“Being chosen to represent Team USA at the FIM Motocross of Nations has been a huge goal and dream of mine for a very long time,” Osborne told RacerX. “I couldn’t be happier to travel to the United Kingdom to race and ride my very best to bring the championship trophy back to the USA.”

This will mark the first time that Osborne has raced under the American flag at MXoN. “With Osborne it was obvious and he has been wanting to go [to Motocross of Nations] for years,” team manager Roger DeCoster said. “Every year he has asked me, I have had to turn him down. This year he has earned it.”
