The French Motorcycle Federation today announced their team for the 2016 Motocross of Nations. Defending MXGP Champion Romain Febvre will lead Team France in the MXGP Class and will be joined by Dylan Ferrandis in MX2 and Gautier Paulin in Open.
Team France also named Benoit Paturel as a reserve rider.
Red Bull KTM’s Marvin Musquin, who is currently third in 450MX points in Lucas Oil Pro Motocross, has been left off the squad.
Team France has won consecutive Motocross of Nations titles and was led by a team of Febvre, Musquin and Paulin last year in Ernee, France, where they outlasted Team USA by two points.
Team USA is expected to name their team in the coming weeks.
The 2016 Motocross of Nations will take place in Maggiora, Italy on September 25.
