Factory teammate Marvin Musquin had an easy victory in his first moto in the 250 class but crashed at the beginning of his second race, only to make an impressive comeback from dead last to fourth to finish second overall.

Dungey had a decent start in moto one and was third at the end of the opening lap before picking off a rider on the next lap to move into second. One lap later he hit the front and then never looked back. He was 27 seconds ahead of his closest rival when he took the checkered flag.

In moto two, Dungey was back at eleventh at the start but quickly advanced to eighth in the first few corners. By the time riders completed their first lap he was up to fourth and moved into a podium position one lap later. He then reeled in the second-placed rider and made a pass for that position on the fourth lap of the race.

Once in second, Dungey then went after leader Ken Roczen. He chipped away at Roczen’s lead but then had a small tip over after running into the back wheel of a back marker. Dungey was quickly back in the action but was unable to close the gap and had to settle for second to finish his day with a 1-2 moto score for his overall win.

“I am really excited to get another victory today,” stated Dungey on the podium. “My team has worked really hard to build me a great bike and I think we finally have everything dialed. I am looking forward to the next event.”  Now four rounds into the series, Dungey holds a 37-point lead in the championship standings. He rides theKTM 450 SX-F Factory Edition.

In the second moto, he was fifth at the start but crashed in the third corner only to scramble back into the race in the last position. The French rider then went on the charge, determined to make a recovery and had already moved into the top ten on the fifth lap. Musquin continued to cut his way through the pack and closed out the race in fourth position, enough to put him on the podium in overall second.

“I am really bummed that I crashed early in the second moto,” stated Musquin. “I am happy with the way I rode after that but I had a lot of work to do to make up for my mistake. I am still in a good spot with the point standings so I am very happy with that.”

Musquin was joined on the podium by KTM rider Jessy Nelson in third place to make it a good day out for the Austrian brand.
