“As most know the story, the Americans were discounted by the Europeans as the “B Team” and not America’s best when they shocked the world with winning both weekends on the 250cc and 500cc Hondas,” said Huffman in announcing 1981 — The Story Of America’s 1981 Motocross des Nations Team — A new feature-length documentary film about America's 1981 Trophee and Motocross des Nations Team who became the first US team to win these events.
