To quote: We're extremely happy to announce that the MUD - FIM Motocross World Championship demo is available from PlayStation Store today.
The demo packs up some of the best stuff you'll find in the game: a Quick Race on the Glen Helen track (USA), choosing the world MX1 champion Tony Cairoli or Steven Frossard. This one is among the most demanding venues, with extreme slopes, very technical jumps and breathtaking sights.
To give you a glimpse of the Mud World Tour, we've also added a Checkpoint Race challenge on the same USA track, you'll discover how different goals change the way to approach it.

It also features the Monster Energy Motocross of Nations that gathers the best offroad riders from both sides of the Atlantic: Villopoto, Baggett, Dungey will battle for victory with the European champions like Cairoli and Roczen.
