Travis Pastrana, Ryan Sipes, and Ronnie Mac will race for team Puerto Rico at the Motocross of Nations at Red Bud in October on two-strokes, and will be coached by ex-Nations champ Rick Johnson!
All three American riders are over 30 and will ride to raise funds for Puerto Rico which was devastated by a hurricane a year ago.
Pastrana has not raced pro motocross for 12 years but will ride his old Suzuki RM250.
“Hurricane Maria devastated Puerto Rico almost a year ago and still to this day thousands of people are without the basic resources they need. This is an awesome opportunity for the motocross community to get behind and give back to the beautiful island of Puerto Rico.” said Pastrana. “I’m excited to be a part of the largest motocross event ever held in the United States and to give the old guys someone to root for as Team Puerto Rico looks to qualify on two-strokes.”
Sipes is a former factory supercross racer who now rides in GNCC enduros as well as some US MX Nationals and the U.S flat track series.
King of the goons Ronnie Mac, who raced the Red Bull Straight Rhythm last year, said: “We’re here to win.”
