This morning, Red Bull KTM announced that its lead 250cc rider and former two-time world Motocross Champion Marvin Musquin suffered a torn ACL while practicing last week. The 250SX Class favorite placed his foot down in a corner and tweaked his knee, but it appeared to be minor. Further tests revealed the tear and Musquin is scheduled to undergo surgery in his native France this week.

“This is an unfortunate injury, but we know Marvin will do the all steps necessary to recover as quickly as possible and come back when he is 100%,” said Red Bull KTM Factory Team Manager Roger DeCoster in the announcement.

Red Bull, now iconic for its off-the-wall yet undeniably cool one-of-a-kind events, revealed its latest creation on Nov. 6 with Red Bull Straight Rhythm. A longstanding personal sponsor of two-time AMA Supercross champion James Stewart and current title sponsor of the Red Bull KTM racing team, this marked the first time the brand’s dream-to-reality trademark was applied to world of motocross racing.

Red Bull recently hosted Give Me Five in Spain, which featured a more condensed, excitement-driven take on the traditional racing format with five riders battling for five laps. However, Straight Rhythm is unlike anything seen before. Considered what Red Bull calls the “evolution of supercross,” Straight Rhythm is an “unwound” version of a supercross track, featuring the traditional obstacles that challenge riders on any given weekend during the AMA Supercross season but in a half-mile straight line.
