Jason Anderson felt some heat from a section of fans for his pass on training buddy Marvin Musquin at Oakland Supercross last weekend but is that justified?

The Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory rider and Red Bull KTM Factory rider train together but as Musquin said himself in an interview with motoxaddicts.com there are “no friends on the track”.

It looked to us like Marv could have been a little more aware of what was going on around him. Yes, it was aggressive but saying it was dirty is a little harsh.


What would you do if you had the red plate and wanted to keep it that way? What would you do if you felt you could catch the race leader but only if you made some quick passes?

Now he didn’t know it at the time, but if Anderson had taken the time to pass ‘clean’ he likely wouldn’t have caught Roczen. This could be a championship decided by fine margins, both on track and in the points standings.
