Red Bull/KTM’s Marvin Musquin – 2009 and 2010 FIM World Motocross Champion in the MX 2 class, will race in the inaugural Monster Energy Cup at Las Vegas Sam Boyd Stadium on October 15.
Marvin said: I’m really happy to race at the Monster Energy Cup. It should be a fun race on my 350cc KTM. I’ve been told the track should be a mix between motocross and supercross, so I am looking forward to seeing the final layout. My goal is to have fun and be out in front with the other big supercross riders and get some valuable experience before next year.
Marvin is coming off his best finishesÃ‚Â of his first season in the USA, earning third overall at each of the final two race on the AMA MX Championship, and will represent the growing list of international riders competing in the Monster Energy Cup.
The unique hybrid track will consist of supercross / motocross terrain and will have a tremendous MX style influence, making it unlike any other stadium race in the world. This track will be the perfect blend of supercross and motocross, combined and created into the ultimate battleground. The Monster Energy Cup posts a $250,000 purse, awarding the winner a $100,000 check, and for the first time ever, $1 million will be paid to a rider that wins all three main events.
This coming weekend, Marvin will be riding for Team France in the Monster Energy Motocross of Nations, which you can watch on Supercross.com Septebmer 17 and 18 – http://www.supercross.com/mx-gp-vod
