What a weekend at the MXoN in Matterley Basin!
O’Neal attended the 2017 Monster Energy MX of Nations at Matterley Basin in the UK. With a huge presence in the paddock we were supporting team riders Dean Wilson (GB) and Freddie Noren (Sweden), right opposite the Rockstar Energy Husqvarna pits, right in the middle of the action.
The UK lived up to the stereotype and it was as wet and muddy as predicted! But that didn’t dampen the spirits of the riders, fans, customers and everyone who came along for a weekend of action-packed racing with the best in world fighting it out around the tough weather-beaten track at Matterley.
Dean Wilson helped Team GB home to a historic podium position, their first in 20 years and narrowly missing out on 2nd.
We hung out talked to fans, did business with customers, supported our Nations’ riders and caught-up with UK riders of all levels who were there to support their heroes…and we partied with them all!
This is one of the reasons we keep doing what we do. To see how much others put into the sport and how much they get out makes us proud and motivated as O’Neal to continue, nearly 50 years later, to be at the centre of a very special industry and scene.
