On his way to his second title, Musquin won no less than eight GPs and 14 individual motos up until taking the title after the first moto in Lierop. Slightly built and quietly spoken Musquin charges out of the start gate with only one thing in mind - to get the job done. And he does it in style and elegance and with significant displays of courage. In the first half of the season Marvin rode like the devil and topped the podium in Bulgaria, Lombardy, Portugal, Catalunya, USA, France and Germany. The only one to spoil his party at the half way mark was his 15-year-old teammate Herlings who walked away with his home GP in the Netherlands. But in the second half of the season, Musquin was challenged hard and often by young German Ken Roczen, only to return to the podium in third place in Limberg in Belgium before winning again in Locket in the Czech Republic and placing second to Roczen in Brazil. During his temporary mid season dip in form, Marvin never once let go of the coveted red plate as championship leader.
