Supercross News
Marvin Musquin Sweeps Both Nights At Geneva SX


Posted: Sunday, 3rd December, 2017 : 7:31 PM - - 2,420 Reads




Red Bull KTM’s Marvin Musquin cannot be stopped in the build-up to the 2018 AMA Supercross series being crowned the King of Geneva earlier today.

Using his KTM 450 SX-F the French star owned both evenings of the well-attended Geneva Supercross at the Palexpo last weekend to be crowned ‘King of Geneva’ for the fourth time, leading home Rockstar Husqvarna's Jason Anderson and Honda mounted Justin Brayton on both Friday and Saturday night.

Musquin triumphed on Friday night and then took advantage of slip by training partner Anderson to win Saturday’s Main Event across a tight and rough layout by almost five seconds.

After victory in Las Vegas, the Red Bull Straight Rhythm, the Paris Supercross and now the last major dirt bike racing fixture of 2017, the 27 year old will enter the new supercross campaign in good form and confidence.

“The goal was to come here and win like I did in Paris two weeks ago and also here last year." Musquin commented. "I knew coming in with Jason and Justin Brayton there would be some good racing.

"The track was pretty good; a really nice whoops section and a couple of nice rhythm sections and the split section was pretty cool. It got beaten up with the soft dirt and it became choppy and rutted and was technical.

"On Friday Jason and I had an intense battle: it could have been dirty but we kept it clean! At the end I was able to make the pass stick and beat him straight-up. A different story on Saturday because he had the better start and we were going for it and pushing hard. My aim was to put pressure on him and to see what would happen with that pressure. He made it easy for me by making a mistake and going down, after that I just managed the gap.

"It is great to win here four times in a row.” The French rider concluded.


Anderson lead both nights main events, but in the end had to settle for second behind Marvin
 
Fresh from his overall win at the Aus-X Open Supercross in Australia at the beginning of November, Jason Anderson brought his winning pace to Europe and the 2017 Geneva Supercross in Switzerland on his way to finishing second on both nights, after leading both races early in the proceedings.

“Day one went well here in Geneva." Anderson explained. "From the first practice to the last I was just learning the whole process. I didn’t realise the first practice was timed but still managed to qualify fourth which was ok.

"After making a few tweaks to my bike before going into the night-race I knew I just had to get a good start and get up front to battle with the guys. It didn’t come as easily as I had thought, Brayton and Musquin were really strong and it took a little time for me to get into my rhythm. In the main I felt comfortable and it was good to be able to fight for the win.

"Saturday was pretty decent - I qualified second, which was good. In my heat race I stalled on the line and fought my way right back to the front from last place. The track here in Geneva is a little tighter than I’m used to so I’ve found it quite tiring and it’s taken a little while to adapt my style.

"In the main I got the holeshot and tried to control the race from the front, but I knew Marvin wasn’t far behind. A couple of minutes in I dropped the bike in one of the tighter turns and lost the lead. I tried my best to get back on terms with the leader but there wasn’t enough time. I’m happy with how I rode and I’ll definitely be back to Geneva next year to fight for the win.”

Musquin, Anderson and third placed Justin Brayton will all now turn their focus to the first round of the AMA Monster Energy Supercross championship that kicks off at Angel Stadium in Anaheim, east of Los Angeles on January 6th 2018.
