Marvin Musquin just misses a podium at Oakland Supercross

Posted:

Red Bull KTM Factory Racing‰Ûªs Marvin Musquin finished 4th after experiencing a crash in the Main Event at Round 5 of the AMA Supercross Championship in Oakland, California.

Musquin got off to a great start in Oakland, qualifying 2nd overall for the day in the 450SX class. The Frenchmen grabbed a 3rd place finish in his heat race, setting himself up for a favorable position in the Main Event.

Musquin maintained his momentum in the 450SX Main Event as he captured a top-five start. From there he quickly moved into the 3rd place position on the opening lap. Musquin battled for a podium-position through the first half of the race before a crash on lap 12 dropped him a few positions back in the overall running.

Musquin was able to remount quickly and finish the race strong to ultimately salvage 4th overall for the night, just behind KTM-mounted Baggett.

"It was a good day overall. I was feeling really good in practice, the track was technical and rutted and I got a lot of good laps in," Musquin explained. "I had great starts in both the heat race and the Main Event, which was really nice.

"I was running 3rd in the Main Event, pretty happy with my riding, and Jason (Anderson) ran me really high in the berm and then I crashed. That was a bummer but I got up pretty quick I was able to pass Seely after he made a mistake.

"We battled for a couple laps and from that I was running 4th place and basically on my own, there was nothing really I could do at that point. I was looking forward to getting back on the podium tonight and I was feeling good until that crash really slowed me down. But I‰Ûªm happy with the training I‰Ûªve done this week and the shoulder is feeling a lot better so I‰Ûªm feeling like myself again and looking ahead into San Diego.‰Û
