2014 Geneva Supercross Results

Marvin Musquin, the factory KTM rider of France, took the overall win in the SX1 class at the prestigious Supercross Geneva this past weekend.

Musquin, who pilots a KTM SX-F 450 for the US Red Bull KTM Factory Team in AMA Motocross and AMA Supercross, won Friday’s race and finished second in Saturday’s race.

This performance allowed him to become “King of Genova,” and rob the American Justin Brayton’s chance of taking a fourth title in Switzerland.

Musquin’s had a flawless performance on Friday when he finished ahead of U.S. challenger Wil Hahn and French rider Gregory Aranda. During this race, Yamaha’s Brayton finished sixth due to a crash.

On the second day, Musquin won his heat race ahead of the American Malcolm Stewart – brother of James Stewart – after a one-on-one dash to the finish.

But when the race got underway, Brayton returned to the top, winning the round ahead of Musquin and Stewart.

But due to Musquin’s 1-2 finish at Geneva, which was his first European race this season, the Frenchman was able to capture the iconic 2014 “King of Geneva” title,

Marvin Musquin (KTM) says: “Beating Brayton, Hahn and Stewart, for sure it is a victory that will count in the United States. And it is a little revenge on Hahn who beat me in the East Coast Supercross championship, although I would have preferred to win there.”

Marvin will now return to the states to prep for the AMA Supercross Championship, which kicks off January 4.
