Confirmed: Spanish MXoN team for Mantova – No Prado or Fernandez
The RFME announces its team for the 2021 Motocross of Nations that will take place on September 25 and 26 in Mantova (Italy).
The Spanish Motocross Team will be composed of:
– José Antonio Butrón – MXGP
– Yago Martínez – MX2
– Ander Valentín – MXOPEN
Butrón and Valentín have great international experience and they endorse their results this season. Butron has nine participations in the MXoN, while Valentín has participated twice. For his part, Yago Martínez will make his debut in this prestigious competition after delivering good performances in the EMX250 series.
This year the Motocross of Nations is in the middle of the MXGP World Championship calendar. This circumstance has been decisive for several leading drivers and teams, who are competing for positions of honour in this event, have made the decision not to be available to be selected and focus on the fight for the title.
Paco Rico, national coach: “With the current situation of COVID and the latest movements on the calendar, it seems that this edition of MXON will be a different event in some respects compared to previous years. The important thing is that it seems that it will finally be possible to celebrate and the RFME with its team will be present one more year to place our flag as high as possible in the final classification. I’m sure that each of the selected riders will give their best and try to take advantage of this very special opportunity ”.
