Marvin Musquin, Red Bull KTM’s factory motocross rider and reigning MX2 world champion on Friday evening was able to undergo an MRI scan for the right knee injury he incurred at the Paris Bercy Supercross last weekend.
Doctors have now confirmed that he will need surgery to correct the ligament damage.
Musquin injured his knee on the Saturday of the three day SX event in the Paris Bercy Omnisports Arena when he put his right leg down hard during the race.
Doctors said the treatment and therapy that Musquin has had to date means he will be able to undergo the operation sooner than expected, namely on December 6, 2010.
After the surgery the French motocross rider will then undergo two weeks of rehabilitation and this will be followed by concentrated physiotherapy and work at home.
