Zach Osborne went 3-1 on the day for second overall. Moto two marked the first-ever 450cc professional victory for Osborne.

Marvin Musquin led the entire 30 minute first moto which secured him that position for the day. Because Osborne went 3-1, Musquin’s second place finish in Moto Two was crucial for him to earn the top step of the podium. Tomac stayed consistent and continued to chard Musquin throughout both motos in attempts to strip Musquin of the overall win.

Just outside of the top five was Justin Barcia (Monster Energy Yamaha) in sixth, followed by Fredrik Noren (JGR-MX) who qualified within the top ten on his new factory ride. Ken Roczen ( Honda HRC) had solid starts in both motos, being within the top five of both races; after falling back drastically, he stole 9th place overall. After qualifying 33rd on his first race back after his injury, Aaron Plessinger (Monster Energy Yamaha) earned 17th at the end of the day.

When asked about how he feels leaving Southwick after leading for so long, Marvin Musquin explains that the longer he leads, the more pressure begins to build from the pack behind him. He is excited for Red Bud and hopes to continue on his winning streak.

In the second moto, Webb got the holeshot, but Osborne quickly struck and took the lead when Webb nearly fell, making a great save. Osborne led his first-ever 450cc lap on lap one of the moto, and then he was gone, taking his first-ever 450cc moto win.
