Looks like Canada finished 13th this year eh. Way to go Tyler Medaglia, Colten Facciotti, & Shawn Maffenbeier.

Something about Shawn’s bike that I really like…

Out of how many countries? Did Russia and Finland participate?

Russia finished 14th. No Finland. 20 countries total. USA was 9th

Why can’t Canada do better?

(Bryon Enns) #5

'cause MX gets in the way of playing hockey. And we don’t have the big industry guys pumping money into the team and we don’t have a Roger DeCoster to run the program.

I think it’s because of our northern climate and riders cannot practice year round. And because of hockey.

What about Dean Wilson . He started off in Calgary and he was on Team Canada for the Nations one year . Dino finished on the box 3rd place first time in 20 years for UK. Canada last year did really well.

#TBT | Team Canada MXON | 2009 Italy

With the 2017 edition of Team Canada MXON just having been announced, we thought it may be cool to look back 8 years to the time when Tyler Medaglia, Dean Wilson, and Mitch Cooke flew the red and white flag in Franciacorta, Italy, at the MXoN.
