Thor MX has strengthened its 2013 line-up with newly signed Marvin Musquin adding his talents to the Thor MX roster. The accomplished Frenchman has two consecutive MX2 World Championships to his credit, and earned his first victory on American soil at historical Unadilla during the in 2012 AMA Motocross season.
“I am very happy that Thor gave me the opportunity to represent them in 2013,” said Musquin. “I feel lucky to be a part of a championship-winning company and I’m really looking forward to great results next year.”
Musquin will start the 2013 season with increased confidence that came from a great 2012 campaign. In his first full year racing in the states, Musquin finished third overall in the Eastern Region AMA Supercross 250SX class and racked up a total of four podium finishes. He was also a threat in the highly competitive AMA Motocross Series 250 class, learning the US tracks quickly which enabled him to earn three top-qualifier awards throughout the season.
“Adding Marvin to our roster is very exciting for us here at Thor,” said Jim Gallager, Design Director at Thor MX. “He’s a young talent with many big accomplishments already to his name. We are excited to have him a part of our team as he continues to excel in his career.”
Musquin will make his Thor MX debut during the AMA Supercross Series.
