Following heavy rainfall throughout the day on Friday, the High Point Motocross track was on the muddy side for the morning’s qualifying sessions. Marvin Musquin prevailed through the conditions aboard his KTM 450 SX-F FACTORY EDITION to qualify 3rd overall for the day.

Moto 1

In 450 Class Moto 1, Musquin got a good jump off the start to put himself into 4th on the opening lap. The 450 Class Rookie wasted no time pushing ahead as he climbed his way into 2nd place by lap three, passing Jason Anderson and Eli Tomac along the way.

From there, Musquin put his head down and charged toward the leader of Ken Roczen. Musquin held strong for 17 laps of racing to finish 2nd place behind Roczen in Moto 1.

“High Point is a really nice track, it’s really technical and rough. I won twice here on the 250 so I was really excited to come here on the 450,” Musquin said.

Moto 2

In Moto 2, Musquin got off to another top-five start as he rounded the opening lap in 4th place once again. Tomac made a pass on Musquin to drop him back to 5th place momentarily but the Frenchman upped the pace on lap six to make a pass on Justin Barcia to reclaim the 4th place position.

Musquin pushed hard in the final laps of the race, where he ultimately finished 4th place in Moto 2. With 2-4 moto scores, Musquin secured his first-career 450 Class podium at High Point.

“We had a weekend off and I think it was good,” Musquin added. “We’ve been working hard and I was going good this weekend and I think it paid off. When you do everything right and you feel good in your head, it’s a good thing. Obviously there are a lot of things to work on still – we always want to do better – but in the end, it’s always good to have progress.”
