Australia has named one of its strongest teams ever to contest the 2022 Motocross of Nations with the Lawrence brothers teaming up With Mitch Evans for a good shot at snaring Australia’s first victory.

In 2022, the all-Honda Team Australia will be comprised of:

MX1 – Mitch Evans
MX2 – Hunter Lawrence
MX Open – Jett Lawrence
Team Manager – Michael Byrne
Team Assistant Manager – Gary Benn

This will be the first time the Lawrence brothers have competed together for Australia (Hunter raced MX2 at the 2018 and 2017 events) in the MXoN and significantly, it will be the first appearance for Jett Lawrence aboard a 450cc machine in the Open Class at this level. Mitch Evans raced in the Open Class in 2018 and MX2 in 2016.

It will also signal Australia’s return to the MXoN after missing in 2021 due to Covid and the cancellation of the event in 2020 for the same reasons.

Team Australia is set to hit the famous Red Bud location with Michael Byrne in the role of Team Manager with former long-time Team Manager Gary Benn in the role of assistant manager/mentor.

All three MXoN riders will arrive in Michigan in terrific form. Jett Lawrence is currently leading the AMA Pro Motocross 250 Class with brother Hunter in second place, while Mitch Evans is currently 10th in the MXGP World Championship, securing multiple top ten results in season ’22.

The 2022 Motocross of Nations will take place at Red Bud, Michigan, USA September 22-24 2022.
