That's a very very smart idea!

You mean he's replacing Ferrandis right?

And still no MM25?

This should be interesting though. Charlier is no joke on a moto track.

Thought they might call on him at some point,fastest lap of MX1/Open at his last MXDN in Techenthal as an interesting point,he can be incredibly fast

No doubt! He's one guy I thought would have a much better career, he handled Herlings to the EMX250 title way back when and whilst Herlings was young, it was still quite the feat as he was blazing fast even back then as well!

MX2 seems to be the weakest of all 3 classes at the MXDN so probably the best case scenario in terms of having to cobble together a rider to do a job.

All they're really after from his is a decent qualifying race and then one decent finish in the motos. If the big guns do their job they will likely be throwing his second moto finish out anyways. France is still the favorite in my mind, they've just come back to the field a bit.

Weird that no one mentioned him, I didn't think of him either.
Good decision though, he's still fast and it's not like he's a hard enduro rider now. Enduro GP includes a lot of motocross like trackparts and also motocross practice. So he should be fine
