In 450MX Moto 1, Musquin placed his KTM 450 SX-F Factory Edition into second off the start and he battled early on with Justin Barcia. Side-by-side through the corner, Musquin was forced off the track and through the banners, dropping him back to third place briefly. He quickly regrouped and responded with the fastest lap time of the race as he reclaimed second-place indefinitely on lap five. Musquin kept his momentum rolling and charged his way up to the leader, Eli Tomac. After a quick battle, Musquin overtook the lead on lap 12 and never looked back, claiming his first moto-win of the season in Pennsylvania.
In Moto 2, Musquin once again put himself into a favorable position off the start where he sat patiently in third early on before powering his way up to second on lap five. From there, Musquin put forth another impressive charge to close the gap on Tomac‰Ûªs lead and he applied great pressure heading into the final laps. As the clock ran down from 30 minutes of racing, Musquin increased his intensity with several attempts for the lead. The two riders came into the final lap bar-to-bar for the overall victory and despite a hard-fought effort, Musquin wasn‰Ûªt able to make a pass that would stick as he finished a close second in Moto 2.
"The first moto I was really comfortable behind Eli and I was relaxed but in the second moto I could tell Eli picked better lines, had a better rhythm and he was on it." Musquin explained.
