Marvin Musquin Takes Third Paris Supercross Win With Clean Sweep

Posted:

Marvin Musquin has dominated the 2021 Paris Supercross winning all three main events and was crowned ‘King of Paris’ for the third time.

The Paris Supercross returned at the La Defense Arena for 2021 and with a simplified track layout to entice some of the leading figures in MXGP as well as a selection of entries from the USA and the AMA Supercross series. Among the travellers from the United State was Marvin Musquin: the Frenchman was a race winner at Paris-Lille in 2016 and laid his hands on the ‘King’ crown once more in the first edition of the meeting in the modern La Defense Arena in 2017.

The soon-to-be 32-year-old is still among the most competitive names in the American contest, set his speed from the outset and aced the Superpole. qualifying quickest and topping Superpole, controlled the first two sprints and faced some opposition from Justin Brayton in the third accumulated a 1-1-1 streak to earn the plaudits ahead of compatriot Cedric Soubeyras.

Marvin Musquin added the 2021 title to his 2016 and 2017 titles.

“King of Paris 2021; that was obviously the goal and I came here well prepared as we are getting closer to the new Supercross season in January,” Musquin said. “This event is always good training for me although it was different this year as the track had no whoops. It was fun anyway and the soil was choppy: it was still challenging. I wanted to get holeshots, be at the front and keep pushing to the end. I’m happy. It was a one-day format this time but I enjoyed it and went 1-2 with my buddy Cedric Soubeyras: two Frenchies! That was pretty amazing.”

Cedric Soubeyras finished second with a 3-2-2 scorecard while Brayton went 2-3-4 for third. Justin Bogle was fourth ahead of Chad Reed was making a short return from retirement to finish fifth overall with an impressive 6-5-7 results.

Frenchman Romain Febvre provided the most spectacular crash of the evening. The MXGP runner-up had a mammoth crash when he rebounded on a double and was launched into a triple jump minus his bike, resulting in a broken leg for the 29-year-old.

In the 250 class, American Kyle Peters logged a perfect night ahead of MX2 World Champion Maxime Renaux and Calvin Fonvieille.
