Twice this season we've had big motocross events kick up some dirt at Unadilla Valley.
And now many of those same riders are headed overseas for the Olympics of motocross.

The motocross of nations is this weekend in Belgium.
Teams representing their country compete in 3 different classes. And the American team of Ryan Dungey, Blake Baggett and Justin Barcia are looking to continue team USA's dominance.
The Americans have won the overall title the past 7 years.

Dungey says, " We're going over there early so that will be exciting to get some practice in that deep sand. Try and get as close a feel as we can and just go to town. It's a hectic couple of days and I think with everybody we keep each other good, and work as a team and try to bring home another victory."

Dungey has been on the past 4 American teams, while this is the second straight competition for Baggett.
Racing in Belgium is this Sunday.
