On a dreary day in Winchester, England in 2006, American riders James Stewart, Ryan Villopoto and Ivan Tedesco won the Motocross of Nations for the 17th time. And then came September 28, 2008 and the 62nd Annual Motocross of Nations. Held at the fabled Donington Park circuit, Stewart and Villopoto?along with Time Ferry?were once again back in England to try and win the Chamberlain Trophy for the 19th time. Just as it was in 2006, it would not be easy. The rains fell and the track turned treacherous, ravaged with ruts, berms and lurking bumps. Furthermore, all the great motocross nations of the world viewed the three American riders as moving targets? Targets they were determined to hit.
And throughout the entire drama-filled Sunday afternoon, the producers and cameras of The Great Outdoors were ubiquitous, permitted all-access to capture and record the latest edition of the world?s greatest, most important motocross race.
