It was a perfect night for the Red Bull KTM duo of Marvin Musquin and Cooper Webb aboard their MOTOREX-lubricated KTM 450 SX-F’s at Salt Lake City on Saturday. Musquin managed his first main event victory of the season while Webb further increased his championship lead and now only needs to score 4 more points at the season finale on Saturday to secure his second 450SX title.
Musquin:  “I can't believe it right now - I'm standing on the top of the podium. I have had some struggles this season but my goal is to come back and keep getting better. There are so many good riders, so the start is super important and I was just trying to be consistent, those whoops were really tough. I'm so proud, I gave it my all tonight. "
Webb:  “I didn't get a great start tonight, which hindered me a little bit. Those whoops were super tricky, I finally found a good line and made a charge there at the end. I thought I was in a good position and Marvin picked it up a lot there at the end. Getting points is key but you want to win when you're that close. We'll come around next Saturday and see what we can do! "

The Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing Team came away from Saturday’s Salt Lake City SX with a pair of top-10 finishes in the 450SX class as teammates Jason Anderson and Dean Wilson finished seventh and ninth, respectively, at the penultimate round of the 2021 AMA Supercross World Championship.
I was in the mix pretty good but unfortunately a lapper washed out in front of me and I had to roll the triple and just lost touch with the guys in front of me,” Wilson said. “It wasn’t an amazing Main Event for me but I think if I can get that start and push to be at the front, I’ll have a good result.”

The Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull/GASGAS Factory Racing team welcomed Michael Mosiman back to the races on Saturday as the 250SX Eastern division gets back on the gas for the final two rounds in Salt Lake City, Utah. Despite some time off, Mosiman didn’t disappoint as he ran up front all day long to come away with fourth in the Main Event. It was a tough day for 450SX teammate Justin Barcia, who found himself on the ground more than enough times at the penultimate round.
Mosiman: It’s been a long time off the bike and a long time off racing but it felt great to get back into it today! I felt like I was the fastest guy out there today, I just crumbled on the race craft, trying to make passes in spots that weren’t ideal and it cost me the win. I believe I was the guy that should have been winning and it’s disappointing but I’m trying to learn from it. I will be better going forward.”
Barcia: I felt really good in practice and in the heat but unfortunately, I ended up going down and tearing my radiator. Thankfully the team got it repaired quickly and got me ready for the LCQ. The Main Event was difficult to say the least. I got pushed out off the start, somehow cross-jumped into the bails and ended up going down and the bike hit me in the back. I charged up to 11th and was still moving forward and then I ended up endo’ing and bending my bike up pretty good. It’s definitely super disappointing on my end but I’m going to regroup and do the best I can do next week to finish the season out strong.”
