Motorcycling Australia (MA) is pleased to announce the 2019 FIM Motocross of Nations (MXoN) team selected to represent Australia at Assen, the Netherlands on 28-29 of September. Known as the ‘Olympics of Motocross’, the prestigious event will host 31 teams from around the world.
After a tough selection process, the MXstore MXoN Australian Team will be proudly represented by Mitch Evans (Honda), Dean Ferris (KTM) and Kyle Webster (Honda), with the trio deservedly earning the right to don the green and gold against the best motocross riders on the planet.

The team’s chances of bettering Australia’s fourth-place finish at the 2018 event, held in the United States, has been bolstered by MXstore coming on board as a naming-rights sponsor.
Amid a strong campaign on the elite MXGP circuit, Evans, a Cairns native, is confident the team will be hard to beat.

Mitch Evans: “I’m excited to get out there, represent my country and race the best in the world,” the 19-year-old said. “I’m looking forward to everyone getting behind us and hopefully we can get a spot on the box because we’ve got a really strong team this year.”

Dean Ferris, who is a three-time Australian Motocross champion and recently competed in the U.S, said representing his country was a highlight of his highly successful career.
Dean Ferris: “I’m super excited to be representing Australia at the Motocross of Nations this year in Assen. I’m really looking forward to racing alongside Mitch Evans and Kyle Webster, so it will be great to catch up with the boys.”

While Webster, who was the runner up in the 2019 MX Nationals Motul MX2 class, was shocked when told he’ll be heading to the Netherlands.

Kyle Webster: “Honestly, I’m stoked. I didn’t really expect to be picked for the team, but I’m wrapped to be able to head over to Assen. It’s my first time heading over to the MXoN, so I’m not sure what to really expect. Being the biggest motocross event in the world, I just can’t wait to be a part of it. Without a doubt, it’s the biggest thing in my career for sure, so I’m really excited. It’s awesome to have both Dean Ferris and Mitch Evans as my teammates.”

Geoff Munro of MXstore, said the company is delighted to be associated with Team Australia.
Geoff Munro: “As an Aussie-owned business with a huge passion for our sport, we’re proud to be on onboard and supporting the boys in Assen. Dean, Mitch and Kyle are an inspiration and truly deserve this opportunity.”
