Marvin Musquin ACL InjuryJust 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.
Our first segment introduces you to the new Arch 1s. This latest, slightly more sporting American V-twin, adds to the original KRGT1 coming from the boutique manufacturer based in Hawthorne, Southern California. Senior Editor Nic de Sena rode through Malibu with Gard Hollinger, who co-founded Arch Motorcycle with his friend, Keanu Reeves. The 1s is a unique ride for sure, and Nic explains what makes the bike really stand out.

In our second segment, Associate Editor Teejay Adams chats with multiple Emmy award-winning writer, Producer, Director, and actor, Thom Beers. the former Chairman & CEO of Fremantle Media North America, responsible for American Idol and America’s Got Talent.
Thom’s fertile imagination led to most of the really big reality TV shows such as ‘Deadliest Catch’ (now in its 17th season!), and many others. Of course for us in the motorcycle world, you’ll be interested to hear the genesis and story of how he started the first real fabrication reality show ‘Monster Garage’, that showcased Jesse James, and then how that led to ‘Biker Build Off’ and the ‘Zombie Choppers’ movie.
You’d imagine that most of Thom’s time is spent sitting behind a desk and on his phone. Not so. His intense stories of capturing much of the content for these shows make for some hair-raising listening.
