Musquin Scores First 450 Podium in Oakland

It was a night of unusual mishaps and drama at the Oakland SX round but Marvin Musquin made a powerful statement with his third place podium finish in the 450 class.

OAK-MUSQUIN

450 CLASS

Marvin Musquin started the night strong with a second place finish in heat race 2 for an easy transfer to the main.  In the main event Musquin again secured a solid start to the race, grabbing onto Dungey’s rear tire and claiming the two spot early on.  Ken Roczen eventually made the pass for second place but Musquin held on for the duration of the race to claim his first ever 450 podium.

OAK-ANDERSON

Jason Anderson also had a solid performance in Oakland, winning his heat race with good margin and riding fast all night.  In the main event Anderson had a weak start and had plenty of work to do to fight through the pack to the front.  Anderson battled his way to a well-earned fourth place for the night.

250 CLASS

OAK-WEBB

A near perfect night was spoiled for Cooper Webb, when a mechanical dashed all hopes for an undefeated season.  Webb battled with Christian Craig to victory in his heat race, and the stage was set for another bar banger between the two rivals in the main.  Webb and Craig started the main event side by side, with Craig edging out Webb in the first few corners.  Webb would latch on and diligently hunt Craig until lap 3 when Craig went down in a corner and handing the lead to Webb.  Webb had full command of the lead for nearly the entire race until a mechanical forced Webb out of the race.  The team mechanics scrambled to bring the YZ250 back to life, just in time for Webb to complete the final lap to score 21 place.

OAK-AMARTIN

Alex Martin also had a disappointing end to an otherwise promising evening.  Finishing second in his heat race, Martin looked poised to carry this momentum into the main.  Martin had a great start in the top five and was running solidly with the front runners all the way up to third place, when he went down hard in the over-under corner and had to retire from the race.

Webb Remains Undefeated at A2

One of the most intense battles of the season went down this past weekend at A2, when Cooper Webb and Christian Craig fought lap for lap to gain the top 250SX podium spot.

A2-WEBB

250 CLASS

Cooper Webb scored a threepeat win at the A2 round and remains undefeated. It was no walk in the park however, as rival Christian Craig challenged the number 1 plate throughout the entire evening. It started in heat race one, where Webb scored the holeshot, but was passed by Craig on lap one. Unable to return the favor, Webb settled for a second place finish in the heat. In the main event Webb had some work cut out for him as he started in sixth position, but quickly cut through the field to third place by lap five. Webb pushed by Savatgy for second and began his assault on race leader Craig. The crowd was on their feet as Webb and Craig swapped the lead for multiple laps with close, but clean passes. In the late laps of the race, Webb finally put some distance between himself and Craig and claimed the checkered with ease.

A2-A-MARTIN

Alex Martin held on for an early transfer spot in heat race two, but had a rough time in the main and finished 19th.

450 CLASS

A2-ANDERSON

He started the race in 12th and moved quickly to fourth place for an easy transfer to the main event. In the main, Webb started off in seventh position and methodically worked his way up to third by lap 5.

Anderson started the night with an exciting battle against Justin Barcia in heat 2, edging out his competition for the final transfer spot for the race. In the main event, Anderson was mired in a slow start, but battled his way to fourth position by lap 8.

Following the race, Anderson was penalized two positions for jumping a section that had flashing warning lights and an ambulance flag in use.

The restart was a slight setback as Anderson found himself back around fifth, now with more work to do. About midway through the race the competition began to fatigue, and Anderson went on the assault, gaining multiple positions and overtaking race leader Cole Seely. Anderson won the season opener with a solid 4.2 second margin and delivered Husqvarna motorcycles their first ever premiere class victory in Supercross history.

CLICK TO WATCH THE INTERVIEW WITH MARVIN

Marvin is an amazingly smooth and fast rider that will be transitioning from his championship winning season in the 250 East Supercross class to racing full-time in the premier 450 class.

“I’m really excited to be back in the Thor family. I’ve had some great times with them in the past and I can’t wait to get more success with them. It’s going to be a great year. “

Coming off a 250SX championship and finishing the outdoor season as runner-up in the outdoor series, Marvin is looking very confident on the bike and will definitely be the 450 class rookie to watch this season when the gate drops in Anaheim.

“We could not be happier about having Marvin back in our racewear,” said Thor MX. “Besides being one of the fastest riders on the track, Marvin is one of the nicest guys you will ever meet and a true fan favorite. Last season he proved that nice guys can finish first and win championships”.

Musquin will be lining up in Anaheim, CA aboard his new KTM 450SX on January 9th, 2016.
