Hi, my name is Marvin Musquin. My discipline is AMA Supercross. My friends call me Marv' Attack . I was born on 30 December 1989 in La Reole, France. My special talent is my fluid riding style. My philosophy of life is keep things fun... and stay happy. My favourite food is a big burger or piece of steak... ideally at a restaurant with my crew after a good race.

Bio

Marvin Musquin is a two-time MX2 World Champion... but has only just begun to show the world what he's capable of. Born in 1989 in La Reole, in the South-West of France, Marvin grew up surrounded by bikes and prime riding locations, and at four years old was already in the saddle. By the time he was six, Marvin had already begun to compete, developing a penchant for supercross as well as a distinctive smooth and poetic riding style.

His talent propelled him onwards and upwards through the ranks and classes, until he was racing at the top level of his sport. Having won the French National Championship, Marvin's dream to become a full-time pro rider was eventually realised when he became Motocross World Champion at the Brazillian MX Grand Prix in 2009.

The hard-working Frenchman knew that despite his victory, much hard work lay ahead. His grit and determination eventually paid off, as after an action-packed season Marvin took a consecutive Motocross World Champion title at the 2010 Dutch Grand Prix.

Marvin has since left his home country and made a bold move to the US, where he trains and competes amongst the elite in his sport. He currently rides with KTM Red Bull alongside teammate Ken Roczen. 

For 2014, Musquin is more determined than ever to earn the championship, stating, “My focus is 100% to win the 250 SX title next year. In 2012, I finished the West Coast series 3rd and last year I came really close to winning with the championship being decided at the final race of the season. I ended up 2nd and now I won’t be content unless I win it!”
