2018 Season Recap:

Musquin came out swinging in 2018 by winning the 2018 Monster Energy Supercross season opener at Anaheim. Unfortunately, he would injure his shoulder at the following race in Houston and fail to score any points. This put the Frenchman in a hole for the 450SX Championship, but Marvin would begin putting together consistent finishes and a few race wins to eventually have a shot at the title at the final round in Las Vegas. Musquin would ultimately finish 2nd in the final 450SX point standings coming up just nine points short of Jason Anderson. 

 

2019 Outlook:

Going into 2019, Marvin is looking to pick up where he left off last season and hopefully turn that second place overall season finish in 2018 into a 450SX AMA FIM World Championship in 2019
