The 2011 motocross season may already be done for Frenchman Marvin Musquin.
The two-time MX2 world champion was nailed at the Freestone round of the AMA nationals in Dallas when Justin Barcia crashed in front of him at turn three of the opening 250 moto.
Musquin suffered serious hand injuries, a fractured left thumb and three more bones broken in the hand.
The 21-year-old Musquin will miss at least the next five rounds of the AMA series and may be out for the season.
