The trio of riders representing France – Gautier Paulin, Jordi Tixier and Dylan Ferrandis – won the event in Michigan outright, now making it five consecutive years that the French have claimed the coveted Chamberlain Trophy and again sending a clear message to the Americans that the Motocross World Championships are called that for a reason … that’s where the best riders in the world do their racing.
Runners-up in Michigan were Team Italy, with the trio from The Netherlands claiming the third podium spot.
The host Americans – Eli Tomac, Justin Barcia and Aaron Plessinger – were well beaten on their home turf, forced to settle for sixth overall.
Have a look at this nice video clip from Red Bull that looks back at the 2018 edition of the great event.
