Marvin Musquin will not race the upcoming Monster Energy AMA Supercross season.
The Frenchman confirmed the news via social media this past week.
Musquin was sidelined indefinitely from Supercross competition in February after he broke the scaphoid bone in his left wrist during a crash at SnapDragon Stadium in San Diego, Calif., on Jan. 21. As the Red Bull KTM rider had sustained other wrist injuries prior to the incident, it was advised for Musquin to let his wrist heal naturally.
Due to the injury, he was only able to finish one race during the Supercross season — the opening round in Anaheim, Calif., where he came in 12th. As he was in a Supercross-only contract with Red Bull KTM, it was natural for Musquin to sit out the rest of the year.
On Nov. 15, Musquin shared the following update on his Instagram.
“Many of you are wondering what I’m up to and what my plans are for the next couple months. What I know for sure is that I won’t be racing the 2024 US Supercross series. I have been taking some good time off to heal my last injury,” Musquin wrote. “It’s been fun to get back on the bike and I love riding. I will give you more news as soon as I can.”
The No. 25 rider has 10 career Supercross wins in the 450SX class.
His highest points result in the premier class was in 2018, when he finished runner-up to champion Jason Anderson.
