Red Bull KTM Factory Racing‰Ûªs Marvin Musquin charged his way to victory in the 450SX class on Saturday in front of a packed crowd at Gillette Stadium for Round 15 of the 2018 Monster Energy AMA Supercross Championship.
As the gate dropped for the 450SX Main Event, Musquin powered to the front and assumed the lead on the opening lap. The Frenchmen dominated the first 21 laps of the race until Eli Tomac interjected just before the white flag. With a victory on his mind, Musquin fought back hard making an aggressive and controversial last-lap pass that left Tomac on the ground to capture his third win of the season in Foxborough.
‰ÛÏAfter Eli got past me, I knew I had to do something ‰ÛÒ it‰Ûªs for the win," Musquin said. "I led so many laps and I was bummed but I felt like I was riding really good so I knew I could charge. I was going into the main rut the whole Main Event, and he cut really tight, I definitely didn‰Ûªt expect it.
"Obviously, the outcome was pretty brutal, and I‰Ûªm sorry about what happened with the crash, but it could have been bad for me too. It was for a 450 Main Event win, sometimes you have to try your hardest, and I know I did that.‰Û
