The French Motorcycling Federation have announced the team that will represent France at the 2014 Motocross of Nations to be held at Kegums, Latvia, on 27-28 September.

Gautier Paulin will feature as the MX1 entry, with Dylan Ferrandis (MX2) and Steven Frossard (Open) making for an all-Kawasaki Team France.

It’s been a difficult selection process for the French federation, with US-based former MX2 world champions Christophe Pourcel and Marvin Musquin both missing out on selection.

Also missing out are Jordi Tixier, who is ranked second in the MX2 championship points, Romain Febvre, who is ranked third in the title-chase, and injury-prone contender Christophe Charlier.
