In September 2013 I travelled over to the annual Motocross des Nations, this year held at the Talkasel circuit in Teutschenthal,Germany. It was a very long drive from Europoort, Rotterdam to Teutschenthal situated nr Leipzig in what was the old East Germany.  I finally arrived around 5pm was able to pick up my passes and get the motorhome parked up in the living area.  Main reason for the trip was to deliver a painting commissioned by Youthstream and to be able to present it to Pit Beirer, head of KTM Motorsports racing division.  The presentation wasn’t until Saturday night so I was able to check out the paddock and watch the practice and qualifying races. More on the presentation later but here’s the action from Moto 1,the MX1 and MX2 classes
