Roger De Coster:
"The Motocross of Nations is the biggest event of the year in our sport, and I feel it has a lot of importance. When I was a kid, I dreamed of being a part of this event... This year, I am so proud of Ryan
and Team USA because they are a young team. We had only one guy who had experience with this race, and then we had two young guys - Ryan being one of them - that it was their first time racing off the American continent. We tried to take this race like a normal race, not try to overdo things and work as a team together. We had a day of riding in the U.S. before we came over here, and I think that paid off. Ryan and the other guys get along well, even though they race against each other all year. I think this year and this result has been a strong point for the American teams."
