Round Six of the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship at Southwick witnessed a French sweep with Red Bull KTM’s Marvin Musquin taking the 450 overall and Monster Energy/Yamalube/Star/Yamaha’s Dylan Ferrandis earning the 250 win as well as his first overall 250 career finish. Both Musquin and Ferrandis were able to win their second motos due to riders crashing in front of them, but that’s racing. Monster Energy Kawasaki’s Eli Tomac was on fire all day with two come from behind motos, but the second moto saw him crash twice, allowing Marvin to pass by. Justin Barcia rode solid all day with a pair of thirds for third overall.
The 250 class was once again a frenzy with riders continually swapping positions and overall finishes. Monster Energy/Pro Circuit’s Austin Forkner went 1-20 for a seventh overall, but the three men standing on the podium at the end of the day were Dylan Ferrandis, Alex Martin and Shane McElrath.
