Just a few days after Eli Tomac said it was very unlikely he’d race for Team USA for the Motocross of Nations this year, Husky’s Jason Anderson also looks to be off the list of potential riders, too. It’s believed he’s going to have surgery on his foot immediately after the US Nationals so won’t be fit enough to ride. And KTM’s Blake Baggett is also likely to have surgery on his thumb, ruling him out too.
The team will be announced by team manager Roger De Coster at Unadilla on August 12. It seems likely the squad will be Zach Osborne, Cooper Webb and Jeremy Martin for the event at Matterley Basin in Hampshire on October 1.
