2017 Season Recap:

Musquin came into 2017 as a podium threat following an impressive 2016 season of premier class competition in which he earned rookie of the year honors. This year, the Frenchman earned his first 450SX class wins at the Arlington and Seattle rounds and 8 additional podiums over 17 races for a career best 3rd place finish. Musquin is the only French rider currently competing in the 450SX class and is paving the way toward becoming the most successful French rider to ever race Monster Energy Supercross. 

 

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 point's short of Jason Anderson.
