Just before the start of the motos at the 2019 Unadilla Motocross, the AMA and MX Sports announced the lineup selected to represent Team USA at the 2019 Motocross of Nations will be Jason Anderson in the MXGP class, Justin Cooper in the MX2 class, and Zach Osborne in the Open class. For Osborne and Anderson, the selection is a much-desired second shot at the Chamberlain Trophy after their past experiences at the international event (Anderson in 2016 at Maggiora, Osborne in 2017 at Matterley Basin). For Cooper, it's an honor for a second-year pro that has shown class-leading talent. Osborne will serve as the Team Captain while Roger DeCoster returns to his role as Team Manager.

On Friday afternoon, we sat down with AMA officials Mike Pelletier and Tim McAdams and Team USA coordinator Christina Denney to discuss the riders picked, the infrastructure that will go into this year's run at the Chamberlain Trophy, and how much time the riders will spend in Europe ahead of the event to prep for the sand at Assen.
