    2011 was nothing short of absolutely epic in Supercross. In one of the closest, most hotly contested, sheer battles in the sport’s illustrious history, the field’s most prominent riders throttled into stadium after stadium, head-to-head in the standings…fighting for every advantage until the explosive finale in Las Vegas. And of course, Oakley emerged as the Champion yet again – continuing its deep roots and heritage in motocross. Taking out 2010 rookie Champion and fellow Oakley Star Ryan Dungey (RD), Ryan Villopoto (RV) rocketed to the Title, closing out a three-way dogfight going into Vegas with RD and Chad Reed. And with that, a season filled with drama, intrigue and insane story lines came to a close. 2012 will be no less tantalizing.
