Sweden have just announced their riders for the 2017 Motocross Des Nations event. The three riders selected to contest on behalf of Team Sweden are:
MXGP: Filip Bengtsson
OPEN: Fredrik Noren
MX2: Alvin Ostlund
Anton Gole has been named as the reserve rider whilst Ken Bengtsson was also considered for a spot on the team but just misses out.
Last year Sweden finished thirteenth overall but will hope to break into the top ten this year. Filip Bengtsson was injured for the event last year so they welcome him back on the team at Matterley Basin.
