Cooper Webb kicked off Moto 1 just right, dicing with Forkner for the first few laps before claiming the lead and then leading the rest of the race to the checkered flag.  In Moto 2 Webb had a slower start and had to work through the pack. He finally pushed himself to second behind teammate Alex Martin, and in the few final laps mounted an attack to spring himself to first place.  Webb went 1-1 for the day and overtook the Championship points lead from Savatgy.

Marvin Musquin commented “I didn’t get the best starts today and I’m disappointed with how both races went at the beginning, but I am happy with my riding towards the end. I’m going to work on getting better starts so I can see what I’m able to do from there.”  Marvin Musquin currently sits third in the 450MX Championship point standings.
