The Netherlands didn't let the rain ruin their parade as Jeffrey Herlings, Glen Coldenhoff and Calvin Vlaanderen easily took the home the country's first Motocross of Nations victory on Sunday in Assen, Netherlands.

The home track advantage certainly helped but the three riders managed the heavy rainstorm that pummeled the area and the white sand track for the 73rd annual Olympics of Motocross as Netherlands, behind a second straight MXoN sweep from Coldenhoff in the Open class and a (2-4) day in the MXGP class from Herlings, finished with 18 points, well ahead of second-place Belgium's 47 points. Vlaanderen had a respectable (10-10) on the day for the MX2 class with his one Moto dropped. The United Kingdom rounded out the podium with 58 points.

The United States tied France in points with 68 but placed sixth on the tie-breaker. Zach Osborne, racing in the Open class, had the best results for the Americans with a (5-13) day. Jason Anderson (8-17) in the MXGP class and Justin Cooper (25-29) racing MX2 class came together in their combined Moto but managed to salvage some points with Anderson taking 17th and Cooper 25th. Cooper banged his hand up as a result of the collision and for his second race finished 29th, the team's dropped Moto.
