Ever since Harv Whipple established Team USA ATVMX in 2017, the outfit has dominated the Quadcross of the Nations (QXoN) race. The squad captured three consecutive QXoN titles between 2017 and 2019, however the COVID-19 pandemic pressured organizers to cancel the 2020 version.
Travel restrictions halted Team USA ATVMX from defending its crown in 2021, sadly. However, the Americans are able to deliver the title again in 2022. Eight-time AMA Pro ATV Motocross National Champion Chad Wienen leads the cost, returning for his fourth marketing campaign with Team USA.
Two-time AMA Pro ATV Motocross National Champ Joel Hetrick may even reprise his function as Wienen’s right-hand man for his third QXoN outing. Third-year professional Bryce Ford may even be a part of the 2 veterans, bringing some youthful power to the bunch.
“We have an outstanding team selected to represent the United States in international ATV competition,” remarked Team USA ATVMX staff supervisor Mark Baldwin. “As top pro athletes in our nation, they once again have the opportunity to show the world the caliber of ATV riders the United States produces. Our focus is to bring home a fourth championship.”
During Team USA’s absence, Ireland’s Mark Mclernon, Justin Reid, and Dean Dillon nabbed the 2021 QXoN title in France’s Sainte-Radegonde. This 12 months’s competitors will ship groups to the Czech Republic on September 24-25, 2022, however the opposition might be simply as difficult.
“To race the best in the world is one thing, and to win is just an incredible feeling,” acknowledged Hetrick. “I’m excited for the trip and to reunite with some familiar faces overseas.”
The occasion will maintain free apply and qualifying periods on September 24, 2022, with the opening ceremony and races happening the next day. Each staff will obtain three 25-minute motos and the highest 5 mixed scores will decide the ending positions.
