Supercross News
Musquin continues unstoppable 2018 SX prep with Paris success


Posted: Monday, 20th November, 2017 : 9:40 AM - - 3,454 Reads




Red Bull KTM’s Marvin Musquin earned his second major Supercross victory in the build-up to a highly anticipated 2018 AMA Supercross Championship by becoming ‘King of Paris’ for the second year in a row.

The 27 year old satisfied the thousands of fans that filled the new U Arena in the French capital city on Saturday night and Sunday afternoon by running to the win in both 15 minute and 1 lap Main Events and starring in the Superfinal and Sprint dashes particular to the Paris spectacle that is now reached its 34th edition and was born in 1984.

The recently-completed U Arena offered a vast platform and a wide floor for a track that was both challenging, hard-packed and ‘attackable’ and brought the meeting – Europe’s biggest Indoor motorcycle race – back to Paris after three years at the Stade Pierre Mauroy in Lille.

Musquin dealt with the threat of Zach Osborne on Saturday and Cole Seely with his KTM 450 SX-F on Sunday as well as owning two of the four ‘Sprints’ and both Pole Positions for a comprehensive sweep of the meeting. Along with success in the Monster Energy Cup and the Red Bull Straight Rhythm ‘MM25’ has been invincible in the off-season period.

"I feel great even though it was a tough weekend," Musquin said. "The level this year – and the track conditions – was so different and it made it tough on me, my bike and the body because of the dirt. I was not totally confident as Seely, Osborne, Wilson: those guys are great riders. The starts helped me. I lost two motos all weekend but got two Pole Positions and both Mains and that was the goal. The stadium was amazing and so were the crowd once again. For sure I miss this. I love racing in the US but nothing beats the home crowd. I could hear them every single lap and turn and that was special for me. My confidence is great.”

Honda's Cole Seely was second for the weekend. Seely snared pole on the opening night but crashed in the main event, eventualy clawing his way back to fourth. He then took the win over Musquin in Sunday's sprint race but had no answer for the Frenchman in the nights final and finished second for second overall for the weekend.

For Husqvarna's Dean Wilson the night could have been better and he was disappointed with a few flaws in his weekend.

"The weekend was pretty good and I learned a lot," Wilson said. "I was a little bit disappointed in terms of how my overall scores went but I put myself in bad positions because my starts were terrible. I felt like my speed was good but putting it all together wasn't. I have six more weeks so I know what I need to work on going into Anaheim. I want to get better as a rider because I feel I can go as fast as Marv for a lap or six or seven minutes, but I cannot do it for fifteen minutes, and that was kinda frustrating. I want to go back, work hard and aim to beat Marvin."

Regular 250 campaigner Zach Osborne stepped up to the 450 for the Paris race and with not much time on the bike was happy with his weekend.

"I battled my way to fourth today and it was nothing special. It was disappointing after the first night because I felt my race craft on the bike was pretty good and it was maybe better than my one-lap speed," Osborne said. "I only rode the bike a couple of times and I came here to enjoy myself and do some racing, so all things considered the weekend was pretty successful. I wanted to feel-out the 450. I’ll be racing it outdoors next year and wanted some information and to build on that. There was some good data for Aldon [Baker] and also the guys in terms of the bike. It was a good, fun, off-season race."

Frenchman Cedric Soubeyras was the best of the local European riders finishing 5th overall.
