Ryan Villopoto took some time to dig out some debris from the start straight before the first Lites heat jumped out of the gates. Or maybe he was working on his B-boy shuffle…
Chad Reed joined the top ten 450 class riders in opening ceremonies for a quick interview for the fans in attendance. He is wearing a knee on his left leg, but is pretty mobile other than that.
Needing only to have a solid performance in the main event, Justin Barcia settled down, rode smart, and managed to stay out of and tangles with other riders in route to his second Lites Championship. Barcia joins an elite group of racers that have won back-to-back Lites titles, and will definitely carry his success into the 450 class next year.
Pro Circuit staggered the podium this week, taking first and second. Darryn Durham led the entire race, and although Blake Baggett tracked him down a few times, Double D held him off to get his first career win.
Darryn Durham has the best podium presence in the game. He is genuinely excited to be up there, and has a ton of fun with it. We hope to see a lot more of him on the box, because he exemplifies what it should feel like to win a Supercross race.
