Stewart Goes 10-3 at Geneva SX

Supercross - Geneva, Switzerland

Troy Lee Designs / Lucas Oil / Honda's Malcolm Stewart packed up and headed to Switzerland for the 28th annual Geneva Supercross held at the PalExpo Arena. He competed against the likes of U.S. racers Marvin Musquin, Justin Brayton and Wil Hahn, and although he didn't walk away with the crown, he put in solid rides on both nights, heading home with a 10th and 3rd place, respectively.

Night One

SX1 / Heat One

In the first heat of the night, Red Bull KTM’s Marvin Musquin pulled the holeshot and stole the early lead. TLD/Lucas Oil/MAVTV/Honda’s Malcolm Stewart quickly moved into second and kept Musquin in his sights, but a small crash gave Musquin plenty of room to take the win. Stewart would hold on to take second, and France’s Gregory Aranda finished in third.

SX1 / Heat Two

Justin Brayton lead the way into the first corner in heat number two and never looked back. GEICO Honda’s Wil Hahn had trouble throughout the heat, hitting the ground and dropping back in the pack, but a determined Hahn worked his way back up to second place. Brayton pulled away out front for an easy heat win, and Hahn held on to second.

SX1 / Main Event

Marvin Musquin squeezed his way into the first corner aboard his Red Bull KTM 350SX-F and jumped out in front. Malcolm Stewart was close behind in second, with Justin Brayton in hot pursuit in third, and Wil Hahn in fourth. On the second lap, a bobble by Stewart caused him to lose the front-end of his Honda CRF450R and hit the ground, collecting Brayton who was right on his tail, and the crash handed Hahn second place. When they finally separated their bikes and resumed the race, both Stewart and Brayton were dead last. Brayton had remounted his bike first and managed to work his way through the pack up to the sixth position. Stewart fell a lap back, but he rode behind Musquin for the remainder of the race and actually started to real the in leader before the checkered flag flew. Musquin took the first win of the weekend, Hahn finished in second, and France’s Gregory Aranda took an impressive third. Stewart ended the night in 10th.

Night Two

SX1 / Heat One

The night kicked off on Saturday with GEICO Honda’s Wil Hahn getting the jump off the gate and grabbing the first holeshot of SX1 competition, with JGRMX’s Justin Brayton rounding the first corner in second and Gregory Aranda in third. Brayton quickly went to work on the Honda rider in the short 12-lap heat race, taking over the lead position early and putting distance between himself and Hahn to ensure the win. Hahn took second and Aranda crossed the line in third.

SX1 / Heat Two

Red Bull KTM’s Marvin Musquin picked up where he left off the night before, and the French rider rocketed off the gate and lead the way into the first corner in heat two, with fellow Frenchman Fabien Izoird in second, and TLD/Lucas Oil/MAVTV/Honda’s Malcolm Stewart in third. Stewart made his way past Izoird, inching his way closer to the rear fender of Musquin’s KTM 350SX-F, and after blitzing the whoops in stunning fashion Stewart overtook the lead bringing the Swiss crowd to their feet. A stubborn Musquin wasn’t ready to surrender the position uncontested, and the two traded back and forth providing Geneva with the best racing action of the two-day event. Stewart’s speed through the whoops eventually allowed him to put some distance between himself and second place, and when the checkered flag waved Stewart lit the candles and took the win. Musquin finished in second and Izoird in third.

SX1 / Final

With the last win of the weekend on the line, the entire gate barreled into the tight first corner nearly all at once, causing several riders to be pushed wide and off the track, while Marvin Musquin slid through safely on the inside to steal the holeshot and the lead. Malcolm Stewart managed to get through the pileup in second, Gregory Aranda in third, and Justin Brayton in fourth. Unfortunately for Stewart and Aranda, early mistakes from both allowed Brayton to take over second with ease and focus his attention on the race leader. Clearly determined by his previous night’s misfortune, Brayton made his battle with Musquin short but sweet, seizing first place and finishing up his weekend with a flawless performance and the final race win. Musquin crossed the line in second and Stewart grabbed third. The second place effort by Musquin was more than enough to secure the two-night overall, and a new King of Geneva was crowned as Musquin walked away with Switzerland’s top honors.
