KTM's Mike Brown Wins Sacramento Endurocross
Factory FMF/KTM rider Mike Brown remains undefeated in the 2013 AMA EnduroCross Series after capturing his second win at the Sleep Train Arena in Sacramento. KTM factory rider Taddy Blazusiak, still handicapped with a wrist injury from a crash at the Barcelona X-Games finished fourth.
Brown, the 41 year-old veteran, topped the board early in the evening when he turned the fastest lap time in the practice session. He followed up with the fastest afternoon qualifying hot lap time to earn the first gate pick in the opening heat. He pulled a great start in his heat to go on and take the win. Red Bull KTM Factory rider and the reigning EnduroCross Champion, Taddy Blazusiak, followed suit and took an easy win in the second heat aboard his KTM machine.
But it was Brown who leaped out front and grabbed the holeshot in the main event. He went on to lead all laps to secure his second win of the season and maintain the points lead. Meanwhile Blazusiak crashed in the first corner and spent the remaining laps coming through the pack. He did well to work his way back to fourth, even though a podium position wasn’t within his grasp.
“I am really excited I was able to grab another win,” stated Brown. “I have been working very hard over the past couple of years to improve in this series, and I am happy it is all paying off.”

Musquin-Roczen Battle at Round 4 of U.S. Pro Motocross
Red Bull KTM Factory Team riders Marvin Musquin and Ken Roczen scored an epict 1-2 in the 250s at Rd. 4 of the US Pro Motocross Championship Series at the High Point Raceway in Mt. Morris on Saturday. Teammate Ryan Dungey maintained his consistency picking up another second place in the 450 class.
The overall was decided in a breathtaking final few laps of the second moto when Musquin and Roczen at times rode wheel on wheel to fight for the final glory. Roczen had taken the first moto win by leading every lap and Musquin, his French teammate came from sixth at the start to finish second, telling reporters he needed to be more aggressive at the start of races. Musquin put this into action in race two and prevailed.
As the two Red Bull KTM teammates attacked the second moto, it was Musquin who nailed the holeshot while Roczen made the most of a bad jump off the line to come around the opening corner in fifth. The German teenager quickly set to work to try and reel in his teammate, slipping past one rider each lap until he was tucked in behind Musquin in second place. Roczen pressured his teammate for the entire race but a committed Musquin was undeterred and went on to take his first career moto in this US competition and second consecutive overall of the season. Musquin and Roczen are both former MX2 World Champions as well as long-term teammates for Red Bull KTM on both sides of the Atlantic.
“It was great to battle with my teammate and have both of us on the top of the podium. I hope we can continue like this for the rest of the season,” Musquin said.
Mr. Consistency Dungey takes second overall in 450s
Red Bull KTM Factory rider Ryan Dungey was also in strong form finishing second overall in the 450 class after picking up 2-2 moto finishes in the fourth round of his competition.
Dungey was out of the gate in sixth spot in the opening moto and had advanced to fourth two laps into the race. He then slotted in behind the third placed rider and began to chase down second-placed Justin Barcia. He made the pass a handful of laps later, settled in behind the leader Ryan Villopoto and proceeded to click off fast lap times right to the flag.
Dungey nearly earned the holeshot in the second moto, heading into the opening corner right on the wheels of Ryan Villopoto and Josh Grant as they headed for the first jump. After lead changes in the opening lap, Dungey found himself trailing James Stewart and Grant at the start of the second lap. He slipped passed pass Grant on the third lap and began to pressure Stewart for the lead. This three-way battle for the lead ensued until Villopoto entered the fray and they raced side by side for the next two laps before Stewart pulled off with a bike problem allowing Villopoto into the lead. Dungey held his position and put together a solid moto to finish second overall. His 2-2 and overall second meant he maintains his second place in the championship points.
“I’m really focusing on trying to close that gap and battle for race wins,” Dungey said. “My bike ran really good today, I just have some more work to do. I am happy with our progress and am looking forward to being able to battle for that lead position at the next race.”
Riders meet next at Mechanicsville, MD when the competition resumes on June 22, 2013
