Outside the Palexpo in Geneva, Switzerland shivered to the early onslaught of winter and was illuminated by blinking lights brightening the approaching days to Christmas and the year’s end. Inside the impressive stadium and the temperatures stayed high, the many fans that filled the banks of seats were in loud voice and the final high-profile Supercross race of the season blasted into action.
Owning the rough track was Marvin Musquin; the Frenchman winning both Friday and Saturday nights and wrapping up a remarkable quartet of events from the Monster Energy Cup in Las Vegas to the Straight Rhythm, Paris Supercross and now Geneva. Countryman and Monster Energy supercross specialist Cedric Soubeyras just missed out on a podium appearance on Saturday.
Some of the biggest cheers across the weekend were saved for the appearance, demo laps and short races by AMA Supercross legend Ricky Carmichael. ‘RC’ completed his recent worldwide lap that included the Motocross of Nations and the Aus X Sydney Supercross by waving goodbye to European fans for the last time in 2017.
