Youthstream has revealed that Matterley Basin will replace Glen Helen as the 2017 Monster Energy FIM Motocross of Nations venue.

It was announced this morning that Glen Helen Raceway would no longer hold the event after months of speculation, however a replacement venue was yet to be determined at the time.

Established in 2006, Matterley Basin held a grand prix and the Motocross of Nations in the same year, attracting a crowd of over 85,000 fans. The British circuit has also been a regular fixture on the FIM Motocross World Championship calendar in recent years.

Youthstream has also stated that they are exploring possibilities to hold the MXoN in the United States of America in 2019, although nothing has been officially scheduled.
