MUSQUIN AND ROCZEN TOP PODIUM AT HIGH POINT RACEWAY!
MOUNT MORRIS, Pennsylvania – Red Bull KTM Factory Team riders Marvin Musquin and Ken Roczen topped the podium in the 250 Motocross class splitting moto wins at the fourth round of the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship Series held at High Point Raceway.
It was Ken Roczen who leaped out to the early lead at the start of the first moto. Roczen rode a great race leading every lap with the KTM 250 SX-F to take the moto win. His teammate, Marvin Musquin, came from a 6th place start to finish 2nd in the moto right behind his teammate.
The two Red Bull KTM teammates would find themselves in a battle for the lead once more as they lined up for the second moto. It was Musquin who nailed the holeshot while Roczen made the best of a bad jump off the line to come around in 5th place. Roczen quickly set to work to try and reel in his teammate. Roczen passed approximately one rider a lap until he had finally moved into 2nd place. He pressured his teammate for the entire race while Musquin remained strong against his charge to continue to lead. At the end of the moto it was Musquin who held on leading every lap to take his first career moto win and his second overall of the season. Roczen held on for 2nd place for 2nd overall on the day.
“It feels really good to get my first moto win,” remarked Musquin. “I have had won overall events but never a moto win until today. It was also great to battle with my teammate and have both of us represent our team on the top of the podium. I hope we can continue to battle for this championship throughout the season.”
