A busy week for Motocross of Nations team announcements continued this morning, as The Netherlands have named their team for 2018.
No surprises at the top, as current MXGP points leader Jeffrey Herlings will represent the Dutch at RedBud on October 6-7. Herlings’ Red Bull KTM teammate,
and veteran MXoN participate, Glenn Coldenhoff was also named to the team.
The surprise selection comes in MX2. South African native Calvin Vlaanderen has been named in the MX2 spot.
Controversy arose earlier this year between Vlaanderen, who holds a Dutch passport and a Dutch license, and Motosport South Africa.
According to an interview Vlaanderen conducted with MX Vice, the MSA complained to Youthstream about Vlaanderen having a South African flag.
He told MX Vice that MSA has never helped him.
