Promoter of the Paris Supercross has confirmed headlining rider Marvin Musquin won’t be in attendance at this weekend’s event after suffering a knee injury during his pre-season preparations.

The Red Bull KTM Factory Racing rider was set to face-off against reigning AMA and world supercross champion Jason Anderson (Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing), who just earned back-to-back Monster Energy AUS-X Open Sydney wins last weekend.

It’s not yet clear if the injury will have any implications on the Frenchman’s 2019 Monster Energy AMA Supercross campaign, as neither KTM or Musquin have addressed his condition.

It’s understood the Paris Supercross has drafted in Autotrader Yoshimura Suzuki Factory Racing duo Justin Hill and Weston Peick to make up for Musquin’s absence.
