Bad luck in the Atlanta main event for the Airohriders

2021 Supercross15 Atlanta3 Musquin

AMA Supercross - Round 15 Atlanta, GA

Marvin Musquin went down in his heat race finishing 9th. In the main event he would finish in 9th place.

For the third race in a row Jason Anderson claimed the fastest qualifier. In the heat race Anderson would claim another victory and first gate pick. In the main event a 4th place start looked promising until another rider made contact with him shuffling him the the back of the pack and would Finish 11th by the checker flag.

Musquin: “It was a very tough track; super high speed and I was losing a lot of time in the whoops. I had a bad gate pick in the main and I actually had a great jump but the bumps got me. I got into seventh and had a gap there with no one in front of me so I could ride a little bit better but I couldn’t catch up to the guys in front of me unfortunately and then got passed by two guys and got ninth.”

“My day was good all the way up to the Main Event,” Anderson said. “I was P1 in qualifying, won my heat race and in the Main Event I got a good start but someone got into me on the first lap and I ended up getting shuffled back. All-in-all, it was a positive day and I’m just going to work on it next week.”

In the 250W class Jalek Swoll would finish 5th in his heat race and 6th in the main event.

Stilez Robertson would finish 3rd in his heat race. In the main event an early race crash would end his night.

“It was a mediocre day but it showed flashes,” Swoll said. “I feel good and healthy going into the last round – leaps and bounds better than last season – so I’m just going to keep my head down, get good training in and end the season on a solid note in Salt Lake. I’m ready to keep moving forward and hopefully get that good last race and full send into outdoors.”
