At the 2010 Red Bull FIM Motocross of Nations held at Thunder Valley Raceway in Lakewood, Colorado on Sept. 25-26, Team USA obtained a win at their home track in front of a passionate crowd of 32,000 spectators.

The American motocross riders dominated the competition, clinching the team’s 21st Motocross of Nations victory and sixth straight win.

Honda Red Riders Andrew Short and Trey Canard filled two of the three spots on the team that took on and beat the best riders from around the world and they did it aboard their Honda CRF450R and CRF250R race machines.

With Honda Red Bull Racing’s Short competing in the MX3/Open class and GEICO Powersports Honda’s Canard in the MX2 class, both riders dominated their qualifying races on Saturday and went into Sunday’s race on top in the points.

In the unique team competition where 250cc and 450cc machines compete side-by-side, Short scored 13-2 finishes and Canard went 12-7, which combined with MX1 class rider and Team Captain Ryan Dungey’s 1-1 result, was enough to secure Team USA’s overall win.

Second overall was Team Belgium, who improved from last year’s third position. Third place went to Team Germany, making their podium comeback.
