Earlier this week it was reported that Red Bull / KTM’s Marvin Musquin would likely miss a portion of the 2020 Monster Energy Supercross season with a knee injury, but today Marvin announced that he will in fact miss the entire upcoming SX season.
“Not the kind of news I’m excited to share with you guys,” Marvin said from Instagram moments ago. “I was really happy to be back on the bike riding after being injured at the end of the Motocross season and starting to train for Supercross.”
“Unfortunately, I had an incident at the KTM test track and ultimately over-jumped a jump that had a very big impact on my legs when I landed, injuring my left knee. I had it evaluated by several doctors and it was determined that my knee required surgery. It’s devastating news to me as I was really looking forward to racing Supercross, but I will take the time needed to recover properly with my main focus being to return when I am strong enough to win races.”
“A big thanks to my team @ktmusa for supporting me in this tough time. I feel terribly sorry for them and all my sponsors for not being able to represent them on the track for the 2020 AMA SX season. But we will be back”
This is a big blow to the Red Bull / KTM team and to the series. There is a rumor out there that Chad Reed could get Marvin’s bike for his final season so stay tuned.
We wish the very likable Frenchman a speedy recovery and we look forward to seeing him back at the races.
