Youthstream, the company that organizes the FIM World Motocross Championship and the Motocross of Nations, have agreed to cancel the 2017 MX of Nations scheduled for Glen Helen MX Raceway.
Info from a released statement: Glen Helen Raceway and Youthstream have worked closely together over the last 2 years and have made serious investments for the organization of the MXGP of USA. Despite the quality of the organization, the excellent racing and the massive media coverage, the fan attendance was much lower than expected.
For such a prestigious event which deserves and needs an outstanding fan participation, the risk is too high for the 2017 Motocross of Nations, and this is the main reason why it has been cancelled in common agreement.
If the situation changes in the future both parties would be keen to work together again.
