At the 2010 Red Bull FIM Motocross of Nations held at Thunder Valley Raceway in Lakewood, CO on September 25-26, Team USA 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.

“This is definitely one of the greatest moments in my career,” said Short. “Being on top of the podium with Trey, Ryan and the whole crew of people who made Team USA such a success is a memory I will not soon forget.”

“It’s been a dream 2010 season for me,” said Canard. “First winning the 250 Motocross Championship and now adding the Motocross of Nations victory. The amount of support we received from the fans in Colorado was unbelievable. The roar of the crowd followed us around the track with every lap, and as we got closer to the end of the competition the cheering got louder and louder. It’s truly an honor to be a part of this team and I’m just so happy we were able to win on home soil.”

Congrats guys! The whole country is proud of you!
