Red Bull KTM Factory Racing's Marvin Musquin gained 10 points in the championship chase with his second place overall result at Unadilla. The Frenchman got off to a top five start in moto 1 and moved into a podium position on the opening lap. On lap 6, he moved into second place and remained there until the checkered flag flew. In moto 2, he grabbed the holeshot and early lead, but after leading for two laps, he made a mistake and got passed. From there he battled his way to another second place finish.
"I'm pretty happy with my day, but I wish I would have given it a better fight in the second moto," Musquin admitted. "I felt good in both motos, but at the end I started making mistakes. Overall it's a good day, but I wanted more. I have good memories here [from] winning my first 250 race here in 2013, so of course I want more of that, but I'm happy to gain 10 points on Eli Tomac in the overall championship."
