Selecting Team Italy for the Motocross of Nations is typically quite straightforward, but injuries have played a major part in the line-up that the FMI will send to Assen on the last weekend in September. Who is in? Ivo Monticelli (MXGP), Alberto Forato (MX2) and Alessandro Lupino (Open) will compete in the power-sapping sand. Remember that although Team Italy stood on the podium last year they were later disqualified for illegal fuel, so those riders will be running triple digits this time around.
