He’s back. Officially. Oakley’s Motocross Superstar James “Bubba” Stewart dazzled a super packed Chase Field in Phoenix for the second race of the 2011 AMA Supercross Season, claiming a resounding victory after fending off a strong challenge from fellow O Rider Ryan Villopoto. The win signaled his full return to prominence after sitting on the sidelines for most of last season due to injury. Making sure a bad start in the Main Event didn’t threaten his chances at victory – as was the case at the Anaheim 1 season opener – James snatched the holeshot after blazing out of the gates with Kevin Windham and Oakley teammate Ryan Dungey following closely. But it was Villopoto’s charging that threatened Bubba’s smooth ride to a win.
O Sweep! Ryan Villopoto Claims Victory at Supercross-Anaheim 1, Dungey and Bubba Stewart Round Out Podium
It was a perfect sweep. O charger Ryan Villopoto smashed his way to a resounding victory at Supercross-Anaheim 1, dazzling a supercharged sold-out crowd of more than 45,000 amped up motocross fans. The Oakley Team Star, rebounding from a season-ending injury last season, topped the Oakley-laced podium with Ryan Dungey (2nd) and James “Bubba” Stewart (3rd) rounding out the winners’ circle. It was a super perfect start to the Supercross season for the Big O…in a year that’s set to be one of the most intensely contested and exciting battles in the sport’s history.
