Marvin Musquin

Marvin Musquin currently competes in the 250 class of the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship for Red Bull KTM. He achieved his dream of becoming FIM World Motocross Champion in September 2009 at the Brazilian MX2 Grand Prix, and he retained his title the following year at the Dutch Grand Prix in Lierop.

Marvin grew up in La Reole, France and got his first bike when he was four years old, competing in his first race just two years later. He became the French 85cc Supercross champion in 2005, and the following year he won the French 125cc Supercross championship, a title he won again in 2007.

After his success in the FIM World Championship, he moved to the USA and made his American debut in 2011, finishing 13th in points despite missing five races. In 2012, he finished third overall in 250SX West Region points, and improved over the course of the outdoor season, capturing his first-ever overall win at Unadilla with a 2-3 performance and finishing the year fifth overall.

He went even better in 2013 – after narrowly missing out on the 250 class East Region supercross title by three points, he finished third overall in 250MX points outdoors. He missed the 2014 supercross season after tearing his ACL in the offseason, but was back to full fitness for that year’s motocross campaign, and currently lies in fourth place with three races remaining.
