Motocross, known as “scramble” when it was invented in the 20s, has a proud, 62 year-long history that developed quickly in the 30s. After the war, the FIM elevated this sport at international level by giving birth to the Motocross des Nations (official title in French), a classic event which has been run annually ever since. Throughout the years this event, which changed name from Motocross des Nations to Motocross of Nations in 2003, has become well known for being the peak of the FIM Motocross World Championship season. Red Bull, the world’s leading Energy Drink company, is the title sponsor of the event since 2007, when the Red Bull FIM Motocross of Nations took place in Budds Creek, America.
Positioned along the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, Thunder Valley Motocross Park is located in Jefferson County, Colorado on the western edge of the Denver suburb of Lakewood.
