“I am very happy that Thor gave me the opportunity to represent them in 2013,” said Musquin. “I feel lucky to be a part of a championship-winning company and I’m really looking forward to great results next year.”
Musquin will start the 2013 season with increased confidence that came from a great 2012 campaign. In his first full year racing in the states, Musquin finished third overall in the Eastern Region AMA Supercross 250SX class and racked up a total of four podium finishes.

“Adding Marvin to our roster is very exciting for us here at Thor,” said Jim Gallager, Design Director at Thor MX. “He’s a young talent with many big accomplishments already to his name. We are excited to have him a part of our team as he continues to excel in his career.”
Musquin will make his Thor MX debut during the AMA Supercross Series.
