September 2010 – Taking third in Lierop’s heat one while runner up in the Championship Ken Roczen pulled out, 20 year old French Marvin Musquin became the 2010 MX2 World Champion and collected his second consecutive World Title. With KTM 350 SX-F mounted Cairoli winning the MX1 Title in Brazil, KTM got a full score today as they collected also the MX1 and MX2 Manufacturers’ World Titles. In 2010 KTM won Titles in both classes for their first time ever.

Exploiting the experience of his first season with Team Red Bull KTM Factory Racing MX2, Musquin was even more confident in 2010 when he even managed to collect a series of five consecutive GP wins to show the opposition –including 16 year old Ken Roczen and 15 year old sensation Jeffrey Herlings as well as a solid Steven Frossard- he was fully determined to defend his 2009 World Title. Courtesy of his second World Title, Musquin reaches the level of countrymen Bayle, Bolley, Demaria, Pichon, Tortelli as well as International Legends such as Hakan Carlqvist and KTM’s Heinz Kinigadner.

Under the guidance of 10 time World Champion Stefan Everts, Team Red Bull KTM Factory Racing MX2 celebrates its third consecutive MX2 World Title with the row of success starting in 2008 with Tyla Rattray.

Musquin stated:

“I started the first moto with victory ambitions but the track was tough. I dropped down then saw Ken pull out and I realized I was World Champion, it was great to see my team waiting for me trackside to celebrate the win. In the second moto I had a good battle with Gautier, congratulations to him for winning the Grand Prix. Also I am sorry for my rival Roczen’s problems, he has been very unlucky.”
