Monster Energy Cup - October 14, 2018

 



Racing for the first time since the AMA Pro Motocross Championship finale at the end of August, Red Bull KTM Factory Racing’s Marvin Musquin lined up in Las Vegas Saturday night and captured an 11th place finish aboard his KTM 450 SX-F FACTORY EDITION after a challenging night. His newest teammate, Cooper Webb, debuted his orange ride and walked away with a 12th.
 


 




Main Event 1



Musquin was fifth at the start of Main Event 1 then quickly moved to fourth. He made a successful pass for the third-place spot in the third lap then took command of second soon after. He made a calculated decision to take the Joker Lane in the last lap and held strong to finish second.



Webb was seventh at the start then made his way to sixth in the fourth lap. He took the Joker Lane with three laps to go and went back to 10thbut worked his way to a sixth-place finish.
 



Main Event 2




Musquin was top-five at the start of Main Event 2 and came out of the first lap in fourth. He tangled with another rider under the tunnel in the second lap, remounted farther back in the pack, and worked his way back to a ninth-place finish.



Webb went down at the start and was forced to battle it out in the back of the pack. He finished 19th.
 



Main Event 3



Webb was mid-pack at the start and made his way to 12thby the third lap. He continued to push and finished 9th. The 6-19-9 finish gave him 12thoverall on the night. Musquin had a challenging third moto and finished 21st. The 2-9-21 finish gave him 11thoverall on the night.
 



Musquin:
“The day started off great with awesome practices and I showed great speed with the fastest lap time. Going into the races, obviously the start was key because it was difficult to make passes, especially in the first moto. I was looking forward to getting better in the second moto but I had pretty much the same start and just tried to make passes like I did in the first moto.



 I was very motivated for the last moto to try to get a better start and try to win it. I had a great start and I made a nice inside turn but unfortunately someone ran into me and instead of going left we went right off the first turn. From that, it was over.




 I’m very disappointed because I show great speed during practice and in the first moto I show good speed, good passes and good fight, but I needed to be more consistent and get better starts overall. It’s always a tough race with such a short time to get ready but it’s good to be able to race it and to show good speed.”
 




Webb:
“It was an up and down weekend with me. It was the first race with the Red Bull KTM Factory Racing Team so we were just getting used to everything and taking it more as a test. I hadn’t had a lot of time on the bike so I wanted to do a race with the team and see how they work and operate in a race day scenario, so it was good to do that.



The first Main Event, I didn’t get the greatest start, made a few passes and came to sixth, which was okay. The second race, I got into a pretty big crash on the start, there was a rider that hit a hay bail right off the start in the sand rollers and a couple of us got into a pretty big pile up, so I was down for a while and had to get my bike off another rider’s bike, it was a little scary.



I was pretty far back and still finished strong and passed a few guys. In the last race, a few of us got together in the first turn and we ran off the track so I came out last again. I put my head down and made some passes and I ended up coming back to ninth. Not the greatest results on paper but I felt like my riding was good.



Overall, just to go there without any expectations and to see how I operate and how the team operates was our main goal. I kept fighting and showed some good speed and I’m happy to get the offseason going and get the program going with Aldon so we can get better for Anaheim.”
