The 2017 Motocross des Nations will again take place in Matterley Basin in England. The "olympics of motocross" was held here once before, in 2006.

In that edition of the Motocross des Nations, James Stewart's leadership skills were put to the test for the first time in his career. Former, and perennial team leader, Ricky Carmichael, opted not to ride the event just 14 days before due to a shoulder injury at the last US national round in Glen Helen.

How did James do?

Team USA won the event pretty handily over Belgium and New Zealand and moved ahead of Great Britain with 17 wins of the prestigious event. James proved he could keep it on two wheels and bring home the prestigious Peter Chamberlain Trophy, but it was the battles between James and Stefan Everts that electrified the early autumn audience.
