Disaster struck for AMA Supercross points-leader Marvin Musquin at round two of the series. Whilst attempting to jump through the whoops section, Musquin was thrown violently over the ‘bars into the face of an upcoming whoop. Clutching at his left arm, it appeared as though Musquin had either a dislocated or injured shoulder.
The Red Bull KTM rider attempted to line-up for the LCQ, but was unable to compete.
“After qualifying 3rd today, I went down hard in the whoops in my heat race. I landed on my left shoulder and felt really beat up. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to line up for the rest of night. I’m really disappointed about that given the team and I were in a good place after our win last weekend. But I will get checked up as soon as I get home and will know more in the next few days. Supercross is a longer season so I’m hopeful I will be able to line up in Anaheim 2.”
Although it is only the second-round of the series, Musquin has dropped from first to tenth in the overall points.
