Team USA is back! And they’re already working behind the scenes on their anticipated fourth semi-consecutive victory at the the Quadcross of Nations this fall.
To clarify ‘semi-consecutive’: Team USA was unable to attend the 2020 event (which was cancelled) or the 2021 returning event in Sainte-Radegonde, France, amid the global pandemic. Having been admitted to the tournament as a participant country only since 2017, the team has won each year they’ve raced, until their last appearance in 2019.
According to AMA Pro Racing ATVMX, the event “draws competitors from 20 nations and attracts more than 6,000 in-person spectators.”
The lineup for Team USA 2022 is:
- Bryce Ford (Ford Brothers Racing)
- Joel Hetrick (Phoenix Racing)
- Chad Wienen (Wienen Motorsports)
“We have an outstanding team selected to represent the United States in international ATV competition,” said Team Manager, Mark Baldwin. “As top pro athletes in our nation, they once again have the opportunity to show the world the caliber of ATV riders the United States produces. Our focus is to bring home a fourth championship.”
Wienen returns to Team USA for the fourth Quadcross Nationals, and is also an eight-time AMA Pro ATV Motocross National Championship Series Champion.
“I’m honored to have been chosen to represent Team USA again,” said Wienen. “It’s really cool to be a part of every U.S. team that has competed in this event. We have a great team this year to try to win our fourth title. I’m excited for the opportunity and to see everyone that we have missed the past few years. I also want to thank the people behind this effort.”
The main event this year happens September 24-25 in Kramolin, Czech Republic. We wish Team USA the best of luck!
