It's actually not a 'young series' its a European Series, hence the name, so people like Pocock, Clarke are able to race it without flying to places like Qatar or Argentina. But it is used as a feeder class so i can see where your coming from.

It's crap Mel got DQd yesterday, after his 6th place in moto 2 just now, he'd still be leading the championship if it wasn't for that.

Goupillon slammed Mel in a huge take out, smashing up Pocock's bike and sending him flying down the hill (and hurting his hand). No wonder he wanted to push his bike out of the way so he could get to his first, and you could tell PG knew he was in the wrong by his body language!

He was disqualified from Moto 1 yesterday due to the incident, not disqualified for the meeting.

Thanks, I know what it is I used to race it.
Pocock was emx 250 champ 5 years ago .. and Desprey race mxgp class, don’t went to Qatar or Argentina, so it’s not an excuse and he’s in top 10-12 in 450 class.
Emx 250 is for riders who’re coming of 125, not for guys who’re afraid to race 450.

Well if you raced it you should know that Mel is aloud to race in EMX250 until he is 50.

Haha that GIF is gold! Hilarious move but yeah, deserves to be DQed.

Until it gets an age limit rule or pointing-out rule, he's free to ride it. Also, why is there a round of a European Championship in Russia!?

What place did he finish with a broken subframe? 18th? So he lost 3 points because of the dnq
Wow Really?
If you think that's a wrong move he should be disqualified for Sunday too. Otherwise just leave him alone...

Here's a link to the vid. Pretty blatant push down. He should be disqualified from a couple races.
