The night didn’t start the way Ryan Villopoto had exactly hoped, but the end result was perfect. Round seven of the Monster Energy Supercross series saw Ryan Villopoto standing at the top of the podium for the third time this year but only after having to qualify through the Last Chance Qualifier. His first place finish vaults him into a tie for the overall series lead with Saturday night’s runner up, Ryan Dungey. Villopoto has a reputation for gaining momentum throughout the season and at this point there is no reason to think he isn’t the favorite. No matter what, Supercross fans are in store for a terrific battle to see who will come out on top in 2010.
With the West Coast Lites class taking a couple months off, the Indy SX offered fans their first glimpse at the East Coast Lites class. With the first round in the books, one thing everyone can agree on is that Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki’s Christophe Pourcel will no doubt be the favorite moving into Atlanta next week. Pourcel dominated throughout the evening and is off to a great start to defend his 2009 East Coast Lites championship.
Next week, the Monster Energy Supercross series moves to Atlanta and that coincides with the return of Thor TV.
