A New King Is Crowned: Brayton Wins Night Two But Musquin Takes Geneva

The Geneva Supercross came to a close Saturday, as the PalExpo Arena hosted the second night of racing in Geneva, Switzerland, with the King of Geneva crown on the line. Red Bull KTM's Marvin Musquin was undeniably a favorite after winning night one, but with the reigning king, JGRMX's Justin Brayton, not wanting to give up his throne without a fight, and with the speedy Wil Hahn, Malcolm Stewart, and Gregory Aranda all thrown into the mix, Saturday night proved to be even better than the first.

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.

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.

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.

SX2

Race One
Sulivan Jaulin apparently felt right at home aboard his newly acquainted Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki KX250F, and the young rider from Southern France launched off the gate in the first SX2 race of the night and grabbed an almost effortless holeshot. Jaulin quickly pulled away from the rest of the pack to secure the win, with Valentin Guillod finished in second and Adrien Lopes in third.

Race Two
SX2 race two was almost identical to the first, and Jaulin lead the way into the first corner to once again take advantage of an empty track and put distance between himself and the rest of the class. When the checkers flew, Jaulin lit the candles with a massive whip, and finished the night with the overall and the weekend with the Prince of Geneva title.

Race Two
In race two, Rutledge led early, but an aggressive inside line by a determined Jessica Patterson allowed the American to take over the lead as Rutledge hit the dirt. Patterson held off a fast Fontanesi to take home her second win of the weekend, but Fontanesi's second place was more than enough to secure the overall and the Queen of Geneva crown.
