TransWorld Motocross was invited to swing by the Monster Energy/Yamalube/Star/Yamaha Factory Racing team shop this afternoon to check out the Yamaha YZ250F race bikes (that’s right, there were two identically prepared machines) that 250 West Coast Supercross and 250 National MX Champion Aaron Plessinger will race at next weekend’s Monster Energy 2018 Motocross of Nations at RedBud Track N’ Trail in Buchanan, Michigan. Alongside Team Captain Eli Tomac of the Monster Energy Kawasaki team and fellow Monster Energy Yamaha Factory Racing pilot Justin Barcia, Plessinger will proudly represent the United States as the trio tries to win back the coveted Chamberlain Cup on their home turf. “I’m more than excited,” says Plessinger about his first MXoN appearance. “It’s already been a dream season for me with my pair of championships and becoming a father…helping win the Motocross of Nations would be the icing on the cake!”
