Red Bull KTM Factory Racing‰Ûªs Marvin Musquin has kept his positive start to the 2018 Lucas Oils AMA Pro Motocross Championship going with a strong second place overall at round 2.

As 450MX Moto 1 fired into action at Glen Helen Raceway, Musquin got off to a top-ten start where he navigated his way through the chaos to settle into seventh on the opening lap. He put on an early charge to take over fourth by lap two, where he made his move into third by the halfway point. The Frenchman charged after the lead duo and eventually caught the second-place rider on lap 12 and once he overtook the second-place position, he never looked back.
