Musquin back to the podium in Atlanta
In the ninth round of the Supercross season Musquin arrives just over 2 seconds from the winner and remains in third place in the Championship
In an exciting three-way battle on Saturday for Round 9 of the AMA Supercross Championship in Atlanta with Musquin coming in 3rd place and now he is currently 3rd overall with 182 points.
Musquin: “It felt like it was going to be a better race for me – I had a great start so I was running second, which was good but I was eating a lot of sand in the sand section it was definitely tough. I was pushing really hard – I was better than Cooper in some areas of the track, so I was able to really put pressure on him in some areas but then I would go through the sand and I had to go in the main line because it was the safest and the quickest line but you kind of had to follow. I made a mistake and went off the main line and then Baggett got me. At this point, I just could not make the pass on Blake, even though I showed some really good speed. It’s only a third place tonight and I’m not very happy with the result.”
In the 250 class Mosiman looked good early on briefly in 6th position until a mistake relegated him to 9th. Bailey came from 20th to 17th.
