2024 Motocross of Nations fundraiser: A Training Day With Gall, Leisk, Dack and Bell

Posted:

A look back at the 2023 MXoN in Ernee, France

It’s the stuff of dreams: a motocross training day with Australian jumps legends Stephen Gall, Jeff Leisk, Craig Dack and Glenn Bell, with complementary wise counsel from current ProMX Championship factory racers Dean Ferris, Kyle Webster, Jed Beaton and Todd Waters.

And when the on-track action is over, a Q&A to talk all things Motocross of Nations (MXoN) past, present and future.

That’s all going to be reality on Saturday, August 3 when a MXoN fundraiser is held at Queensland Moto Park (QMP), with all monies generated from the training day going directly into the 2024 Team Australia MXoN assault.

Gall holds a special place in Australian MXoN history, combining with David Armstrong, Trevor Williams and Vaughan Style for the first ever tilt at the prestigious event when it was held in Sweden in 1984.

Four years later, in France, Leisk, Dack and Bell finished in fourth, which was Australia’s best result in the MXoN until third places in 2011 (Chad Reed, Brett Metcalfe and Matt Moss) and 2022 (Jett Lawrence, Hunter Lawrence and Mitchell Evans) – both usurped by a brilliant second place in 2023 (the Lawrence brothers and Ferris).

This year’s MXoN will be held at Matterley Basin in England on October 5-6.
