After battling a serious knee injury for the last few rounds, Marvin Musquin has again run out of luck at the Southwick National for the seventh round of the AMA Pro Motocross Championship held in Southwick, Mass. on Saturday.

The Red Bull KTM Factory Racing Team rider made a good start in the days opening moto only to get caught in a pile-up and had to charge from last place to 4th. He got the holeshot in the second moto and held his ground for six laps before fighting hard for his position in the sixth lap with eventual round winner Eli Tomac. He gave it everything he had but crashed hard around the halfway mark. The crash forced him into the mechanic‰Ûªs area and left him unable to finish the race. He ended the day 12th overall, and is currently third in 450 rider point standings.

"I was really excited for Southwick race. We had a good week training and my knee has healed and improved a lot this week," the Frenchman explained.

"We knew the key to this race was going to be a good start. In the first moto I wasn't bad off the start but I went down in the third corner with a few others and had to restart from way back. I made a good comeback and by the end of the race I was 4th, so I was happy about that because it proved we had the speed to run up front.

"In the second moto I got a really good start and got the holeshot, and I felt really good battling with Eli up front for the lead. Eli had gotten by me and I was pushing hard right behind him when I cross rutted and had a big crash. I tried to get going again but the bike was too banged up, and unfortunately I had to pull off. It's such a bummer because I felt like everything was getting back on track and I was back to being up front again. But it is what it is and we will be back to fight up front in Millville."
