Marvin Musquin ACL Injury
Just over two weeks until the start of the 2014 AMA Supercross Championship, and Red Bull KTM Factory rider Marvin Musquin sustained a major injury.
The 23-year-old French rider, who renewed his contract with KTM for the 250cc East Supercross series, tore his ACL late last week while practicing at the KTM Supercross test track in California.
Musquin, who was recently crowned 2013 King of Geneva following a 1-2 finish at the famed race in Switzerland, initially thought the injury was minor when he put his foot down during a turn.
But after consulting a doctor, the KTM SX-F 250 pilot learned he tore his ACL. He will now return to France for surgery, and will miss the start of the East Coast Supercross 250 SX series.
Roger DeCoster (Red Bull KTM Factory Team Manager) says: “This is an unfortunate injury, but we know Marvin will do the all steps necessary to recover as quickly as possible and come back when he is 100 percent.”
In 2013 Supercross, Musquin earned four wins, and finished second overall in the point standings.
