As crazy as the 250SX main event was, the 450SX main was one of the wilder races we’ve seen a in while. First off the start MCR Honda’s Justin Brayton went down and appeared unconscious which forced a red flag while Monster Yamaha’s Cooper Webb was out front with Honda’s Cole Seely second.
On the restart it was Red Bull KTM’s Marvin Musquin who got a fantastic start and quickly put some time on the rest of the field. Part of the reason why was Musquin wheeling into the second set of whoops, touching down once and then jumping out the rest of the way. It was very fast.
Musquin’s win was the first of his career and the first for a French rider in the premiere class since David Vuillemin won in Indianapolis 2002. Thanks to Le Cobra himself for that trivia stat! Musquin said that the 26 lap main event, the longest one of the season so far, was really long and hard to concentrate on his six second lead. It was a fantastic ride by Musquin who was fast all day long in practice as he traded the pole position with Monster Kawasaki’s Eli Tomac all day long.
