MXA MINI-VIEW | MARVIN MUSQUIN TELLS US ABOUT TAKING THE POINTS LEAD FROM ELI TOMAC
“Anything can happen in motocross” is an old saying that easily could be used at this past weekends 450 class at Red Bud. Among the highlights were Kenny Roczen on his team HRC Honda taking his first moto win, Eli Tomac’s Monster Energy Kawasaki breaking down in moto one, an his subsequent problems in moto two, too Monster Energy Yamaha’s Justin Barcia‘s last lap pass on Roczen in moto two. But the biggest takeaway was Red Bull KTM’s Marvin Musquin capturing the overall win and red plate. Okay, he may be only three points ahead of the amazing Eli Tomac, but this has put them back on a level playing field. I literally stopped Marvin just as he was getting into his rental car for a few quick questions.
