With the 2016 Monster Energy Supercross Championship in the books, the American Motorcyclist Association has announced each rider for its Rookie of the Year awards – Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull KTM’s Marvin Musquin (450SX) and Red Bull KTM’s Alexander Frye (250SX).

The 2016 Supercross Rookie of the Year award is given to the rookie rider who earns the most points in his or her class.

AMA Supercross Director Kevin Crowther says: ”Marvin and Alexander made the most of their rookie seasons by displaying that they have the speed, agility and desire to rise to the top of the ranks amongst a tough field of competitors.

“We congratulate them for their exceptional performance in 2016. Their persistence and desire to work hard will certainly lead them to excel in AMA Supercross.”

Musquin, of Corona, Calif., the teammate of 2016 SX Champion Ryan Dungey, earned seventh in the 450SX Championship. Throughout the season, Musquin, the 2015 250SX East Champion, earned five podiums. He earned the the most points even after not starting in Indianapolis due to injury.

Frye, of Huntington, Md., finished 14th overall in the 250SX East class, which was loaded with veteran riders. He qualified for all main events except for the SX season finale in Las Vegas, where he crashed and was unable to qualify.
