Musquin was the second fastest qualifier in the morning practice session behind Jeremy Martin. When the gate dropped for moto one, Musquin had a decent jump out of the gate sitting in 5th place, in front of title chase contender Martin. Musquin managed to stay in front of Martin for the first two laps staying right where he needed. Unfortunately, on the second lap, Musquin encountered a mechanical issue that caused him to not finish the moto. He ended up 40th in moto one scoring no points toward the championship.
