Marvin Musquin and KTM celebrate his second MX2 World Championship title
7 September 2010, 5:43 am

    From  KTM

When  Marvin Musquin started winning races at the beginning of 2009, he was  relatively unknown, but by Sunday when he secured his second consecutive MX2  title riding in Lierop, Netherlands, KTM's French racer enjoyed the status of  one of the most talented motocross riders in the business and a worthy world  champion.

Musquin  secured the title in the first moto at Lierop just two weeks after his factory  teammate Tony Cairoli rode his KTM 350 SX-F to his title victory in the MX1  class, leaving the Austrian manufacturer with a stunning clean sweep of the  world championship MX1 and MX2 titles. Together with teammate Jeffrey Herlings,  who also won two GPs in his first competition season, the KTM MX2 duo have been  major players in the MX2 competition.

"This  is a great moment for us," said KTM CEO speaking to Youthstream TV from  the KTM pit area. "It is the first time that KTM has won both titles. Now  Marvin goes to the USA and Roger DeCoster is waiting for him."

Earlier on  Sunday at Lierop KTM announced the signing of the legendary rider/manager Roger  DeCoster to take over the management of KTM's new full factory team to compete  in the USA from 2011.

On his way  to his second title, Musquin won no less than eight GPs and 14 individual motos  up until taking the title after the first moto in Lierop. Slightly built and  quietly spoken Musquin charges out of the start gate with only one thing in  mind - to get the job done. And he does it in style and elegance and with  significant displays of courage. In the first half of the season Marvin rode  like the devil and topped the podium in Bulgaria, Lombardy, Portugal,  Catalunya, USA, France and Germany. The only one to spoil his party at the half  way mark was his 15-year-old teammate Herlings who walked away with his home GP  in the Netherlands. But in the second half of the season, Musquin was  challenged hard and often by young German Ken Roczen, only to return to the  podium in third place in Limberg in Belgium before winning again in Locket in  the Czech Republic and placing second to Roczen in Brazil. During his temporary  mid season dip in form, Marvin never once let go of the coveted red plate as  championship leader.

Since Marvin  joined the Red Bull KTM Factory Racing Team mid season last year he has grown  in stature and reputation as he has rolled out a series of performances on his  KTM 250 SX-F bike that have thrilled the fans and sent KTM well on the way to  securing the manufacturer's title in MX2 as well as in MX1.

With two  MX2 world championship titles to his credit achieved before his 21st birthday  in December 2010, the new world champion can now concentrate on the next phase  of his meteoric career. He has already signed with KTM to race in the USA for  2011 and 2012, where he will compete in the US Lites East and the Outdoor  Nationals.

The entire  KTM International Family congratulates Marvin on a fantastic season and thanks  him for all the great performances he has given during the 2011 racing season.  Marvin, like his teammate Tony Cairoli is a true KTM hero!
