Oh, how the tables have turned… They say persistence pays off and Marvin Musquin has been hounding Eli Tomac all year. After a pair of motos that resulted in Eli’s worst career 450 overall finish (15th), the Frenchman was able to overtake and surpass Tomac for not only the race win, but the red plate as well. We love Tomac just as much as the next guy, but watching him win weekend after weekend means the most interesting battle is usually for second. He’s got his work cut out for him now, and we can surely expect Eli to come back charging next race. Ken Roczen had a great race with a moto win and a second overall podium result. Justin Barcia finished in third.
The 250 class saw Aaron Plessinger sweep both motos, but not without a little excitement and close racing with Austin Forkner. Forkner passed Plessinger in moto 1, but Aaron passed him right back in an aggressive move which saw their lines come together, unfortunately putting Austin on the ground, but that’s racing. Alex Martin and Dylan Ferrandis both performed well and rounded out the podium in second and third, respectively.
