Team Sweden has announced their rider line-up for the 2018 Motocross of Nations which kicks off in just over a month at RedBud in Buchanan, Michigan, USA on October 6/7.

“Svemo’s Board has given the Svemo motocross section the confidence and financial means to take out a team to represent Sweden at this year’s MXoN,” said a statement from the federation.

Jonte Engdahl has selected the three riders to represent Team Sweden at RedBud and support from the USA has been crucial for Swedish squad.

Rock River Power Sports Yamaha will provide machines, equipment, mechanics and a trailer over the weekend of October 6/7.

For the seventh time, Filip Bengtsson (MX1) will race for Team Sweden – the track should suit the 27-year-old. Anton Gole takes on Open and in MX2 it will be Alvin Ostlund.

“We have put together a team with our full confidence. It has experience and we believe in it a lot,” said Tommy Allansson, coordinator of Svemo’s Motocross Division.

Fredrik Noren had already announced earlier this year that he would not be able to participate.
