Marvin achieved his dream of becoming MX2 Motocross World Champion in September 2009
when he triumphed at the Brazilian MX Grand Prix. It was only his second year riding in the MX2 world series, after finishing 14th in 2008. He went on to retain his title the following year, this time at the Dutch Grand Prix in Lierop.
He then moved to the US, making his Lucas Oil Pro Motocross debut in 2011, finishing 13th in points despite missing five races due to injury. Fully recovered and ready to take things up a notch in 2012, Musquin finished third overall in the 250SX West Region, and fifth overall outdoors, only behind the "Fast Four" of Blake Baggett, Ken Roczen, Eli Tomac and Justin Barcia. He captured his first-ever overall win at Unadilla with a 2-3 performance.
Marvin, known as Marv Attack to his many fans, was born in 1989 in La Réole, France, and grew up surrounded by bikes and prime riding locations. At four years old he was already in the saddle and he rode in his first race at age six. He became the French 85cc Supercross champion in 2005, and the following year he won the French 125cc Supercross championship, a title he retained in 2007.
Even at a very young age, Marvin began to develop the distinctive smooth and poetic riding style that he still employs today. The man himself describes it in two words - modern and aerial, and it certainly melds both man and machine into one smooth, flowing unit.
