MX Nation is an exhilarating and captivating show produced by Red Bull TV, focused on the world of motocross racing. The show predominantly follows the careers of three high-profile riders, Aldon Baker, Marvin Musquin, and Ken Roczen, throughout the 2016 professional Motocross and Supercross racing seasons in the United States.

Aldon Baker is an accomplished and established trainer who works with some of the biggest names in the industry. Marvin Musquin is a French rider who has quickly become one of the most promising MX racers in the world, and Ken Roczen, a German rider who was a former motocross world champion, but faced a gruesome accident in 2017 that forced him to temporarily retire.

Throughout the show, we get a glimpse into the lives of these riders and their intense training routines, their struggles with injuries and setbacks, and their unbreakable drive and determination to succeed despite the odds. We see the immense pressure put on them by sponsors, fans, and their own personal expectations to succeed and become the best riders in the world.

One of the standout themes of the show is the grueling physical and mental preparation necessary to become a top-level motocross rider. MX Nation takes us behind the scenes of Baker's training sessions with top riders, including Roczen and Musquin, as they push themselves to their physical limits in preparation for the upcoming races. The riders are seen working out in the gym, jogging, cycling, and practicing on tough terrains to improve their skill and stamina on the bike.

Apart from showcasing the intense physical preparation, the show also delves into the deep emotional and psychological toll these riders experience throughout the season. The riders reveal the extreme pressure they feel to succeed in every race, and how they deal with the disappointment and frustration that comes with injuries or poor performances. This often drives them to push themselves to the brink of their limits, both physically and mentally, showcasing the mental toll that motor racing can take on its competitors.

To complement the on-track action, the series uses a range of filming and cinematography techniques that allow us to feel intimately connected with the riders. We see extreme close-ups of their faces, capturing the intensity of their emotions as they struggle to overcome obstacles and perform to the best of their abilities.

MX Nation is not just a sports show; it's also a documentation of the subculture of motocross, accentuating the racers' passion and their love for the sport. The show features interviews with family members of the riders, their trainers, mechanics, and support staff, providing an insider's perspective on the lifestyle, routines, and competitiveness that make up motocross.

In conclusion, MX Nation delivers an exciting look into the world of motocross racing, showcasing the intense training, pressure, and determination necessary to succeed as a top-level racer.
