Marvin Musquin Has Torn Meniscus [Update]

Racer X has learned that Red Bull KTM's Marvin Musquin has a torn meniscus in his knee. Musquin, who entered High Point as the 450MX points leader, rode only four laps in practice and qualified just 16th overall. In the first 450 moto he struggled to finish 16th.

After the moto, Red Bull KTM team manager Roger Decoster confirmed that Musquin was dealing with a torn meniscus.

We'll have more information later.

[Update]

Musquin issued the following statement via a Red Bull KTM press release following the race.

“This week was all about salvaging points in the championship. I hurt my left knee so knew it was going to be tough coming into High Point especially since we were coming in with the red plate. I had to ride both races with my feet on the pegs basically unable to put my left leg out which obviously restricted what I was able to do on the track, it was tough. But I gave it everything I had and we leave here second in points so it could have been a lot worse. I guess the next few weeks will be about salvaging points and I will just keep trying to do my best.”
