Newly crowned AMA 250cc East Supercross Champion Marvin Musquin will remain with KTM through 2017.
KTM Motorsports announced it has extended its contract with Red Bull KTM Factory rider and newly crowned 2015 East 250 Supercross Champion, Marvin Musquin of France through the 2017 race season.
Musquin announced immediately after the race that he had re-signed with the Red Bull KTM Factory Team for two more years. He will be in a familiar environment as he transitions into the 450cc class for the Monster Energy AMA Supercross Series and the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship in 2016. Musquin will still race in the 250cc class during the 2015 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship.
“I’m really excited to spend the next two years with KTM,” Musquin said. “They are my family. It feels like home under the Red Bull KTM tent as we’ve spent almost seven years together already. I know how much effort they have put into R&D to give us the best KTM race bikes, and I believe in them just as they believe in me. I’m looking forward to even more success with my team.”
Red Bull KTM Factory Team Manager Roger De Coster said that the team is happy to have Musquin remain aboard.
“Marvin and Ryan (Dungey) have a great working relationship,” DeCoster said. “I have not seen a bond this great between teammates in a long time, and we are happy to work with them both. Marvin is a smooth rider with great technique, and we feel he will easily adapt to the 450 and we are looking forward to what he can bring to that class.”
