With the 2012 edition of the Monster Energy Motocross of Nations set for its showdown in the sand trap of Lommel this weekend, Blake Baggett and Tommy Searle set about their pre-event preparations in Grevenbroich, Germany to get a feel for similar conditions.

Blake’s running the Monster Energy Pro Circuit Kawasaki 250 machine for Team USA this weekend whilst Team Floride Monster Energy Kawasaki Pro Circuit’s Tommy Searle is stepping up onto the 450 for Team GB. Both guys will be shooting for podium finishes at the end of a grueling weekend that remains the greatest show on the Motocross calendar.
