Sunday, Sept. 27th, 2015 in Ernee France, that was the stage where 35 countries battled for the Motocross of Nations title and the Chamberlain trophy. France and the USA had a close battle all day throughout the three motos. France edged out the USA by just two points. Justin Barcia and Cooper Webb both ran great races for the USA, Justin Barcia won the first moto. Marvin Musquin rode well in race one and two but it was French riders Gautier Paulin and Romain Febvre that led the team resulting in victory.
For me, its exciting to see 35 countries come together for the love of our sport. Of course, I am disappointed that the USA could not bring home the trophy again, 4 years in a row, but you cannot deny the talent from any of these countries and my hat goes off to them all. Congratulations France on your MXoN 2015 title.
