Southwick: 250 Moto 2 Report

Southwick: 250 Moto 2 Report

June 29, 2013 5:30pm

The vibrant New England fan base were brought to their feet again in the second moto, as local product Jimmy Decotis battled with Ken Roczen and Marvin Musquin for the holeshot. Roczen was able to nudge by his teammate and Decotis to take the early lead. Wil Hahn’s streak of three consecutive holeshot awards was brought to a halt when Hahn wasn’t able to re-start his bike on the parade lap. It marked the second time in the afternoon that Hahn had bike troubles as he also had to pull off in moto 1.

Moto 1 winner Eli Tomac was buried outside the top ten off the start, but like a week ago at Budds Creek he was near the front in a flash. He quickly worked his way up to the group of Osborne, Anderson and Musquin, breaking the sinking Musquin first. He then moved on to Anderson. The Rockstar Energy Racing rider provided more resistance as he and Tomac went bar to bar for a few turns, before Tomac was able to pressure Anderson into a small mistake that allowed him to secure second. Tomac then went to work on his teammate, again receiving some resistance. Ultimately, though, the pressure would get to Osborne, as he had to settle for third in the moto.

Roczen would cruise to the moto 2 win, with Tomac and Osborne rounding out the moto podium. Tomac’s late charge was good enough to secure the overall.
