Hi, my name is Marvin Musquin. My discipline is supercross. My friends call me Marv' Attack . I was born on 30 December 1989 in La Reole, France. My philosophy of life is keep things fun... and stay happy. My favourite food is a big burger or 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. 

Musquin's plan for 2014 was simple: “My focus is 100% to win the 250 SX title. I won’t be content unless I win it!” But unfortunately he tore his ACL and came into 2014 not fully recovered and, to add insult to injury, he dislocated his shoulder in practice at the opening round. However, that didn't stop Musquin giving it his all. At Washougal he showed what could have been when he absolutely dominated for a perfect 1-1 before going on to take the 250 win at the 2014 Red Bull Straight Rhythm... The scene is set for 2015!
