Red Bull KTM Factory Racing’s Marvin Musquin came away with his first-career 450 Class win at Glen Helen’s second round of the 2017 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship.

Musquin went 1-3 for the overall and took the championship lead in the process, while entering points leader Eli Tomac endured through misfortune aboard his Monster Energy Kawasaki.

Joining Musquin on the podium was second moto winner Jason Anderson (Rockstar Energy Husqvarna), who was fifth in the opening encounter, and Blake Baggett (RMATV/MC WPS KTM) after he went 8-2.

Tomac charged to second in the first moto but in the second he went off the track, attempted to re-enter the race, but appeared to be suffering from an issue with his front wheel or brake. He eventually returned to the track in 35th, but lost a lap to the leaders and finished P19.

In the 250 Class, Rockstar Energy Husqvarna’s Zach Osborne stood atop the podium again, starting the season with back-to-back victories via a 4-2 scorecard.

A win in the first outing, followed by a seventh, placed Jeremy Martin (GEICO Honda) second on the podium, while Yamalube/Star Racing Yamaha’s Dylan Ferrandis completed the podium via 9-1 results.

The 2017 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship continues next Saturday, 3 June, with its third round from Thunder Valley Motocross Park in Lakewood, Colorado.
