Good work Marv! That’s why you spend the money KTM.

Brian Deegan did bring some sense into the arguement
The way i see it #KTM is a team and teams use team tactics to get the job done. Roger is strategic in picking the team. When I raced for team green we had team orders the last race to help Jimmy Gaddis win over Suzuki’s Factory Phil. (As a young racer I gladly helped to impress my sponsor and be able to keep getting support to race ) It’s the way teams work. Trust me we love @elitomac but at high levels of racing it happens all the time. I’m cool with @marvinmusquin25 helping his #TEAMmate ,training partner ,and friend @ryandungey (remember @cooperwebb2 helping @jeremymartin6 beat Marvin in outdoors ???)but I just wish he would of kept it real in interview and said “hey we are going to do whatever it takes to win this title for our TEAM ! ” just claimed it 👊🏼 I feel he showed good humility to step down to help his friend win. It had to be so hard in the moment and I’m sure it was hard being put on the spot in the interview. Either way it ain’t over yet ! Team orders can go both ways. And I’m excited to see vegas. May the best TEAM #win ✊🏻👊🏼👆🏼 #sx
