Ryan Villopoto is the third person in history to win his first premier class race and the only other person besides Carmichael to claim three-straight 250 motocross titles and then win his 450-class debut. His first championship came outdoors in 2006 following a third place in the Western SX Lites series. He backed that up with a sweep of 2007 and was poised to do it again in ’08 but came up short in the final SX Lites race. Newcomer Trey Canard pulled an aggressive move in the battle for the race win and championship that sent RV off the track. V...

  • Heir Apparent: Marc Marquez’s Rookie Tear Through MotoGP World Continues, Extends Lead for Crown

    Posted 9 months ago by Andrew De Lara

    Marc Marquez is the real deal. Sure, the humble Spanish phenom may be inclined to play down the fact that he holds a 16-point lead in the Championship standings as a MotoGP rookie. Or the fact the fact that he’s on the heels of three recent victories (the most recent coming at Laguna Seca in Northern California – where he became the first rookie to have ever triumphed at the track). He’s the youngest ever to tally back-to-back wins, by the way. Marc’s quick to point out that the absences and injuries of fellow Spanish superstars like Dani Pedrosa and Jorge Lorenzo allowed him chances to win – and that their presence may have altered the results. But he also noticeably omits the fact that his first-ever victory, coming at the inaugural Grand Prix of the Americas in Austin (Texas), was achieved by convincingly outgunning his childhood hero (and fellow Oakley superstar), Valentino Rossi, who’s finally found his form after a couple of tough years with Ducati.

  • Magic Streak: IndyCar’s Scott Dixon Now ‘Winningest’ Active Driver, Takes Three Straight with Toronto Victory

    A week sure can do wonders. Just ask Scott Dixon, who went from seventh in the standings and his first victory in more than a year – to dominating his third straight race and catapulting into IndyCar Championship contention…all in a matter of eight days. Now trailing current standings leader, Helio Castroneves, by a mere 29 points, Oakley’s ‘Kiwi’ veteran not only smoked the field in Pocono and Toronto (doubleheader) – he now charged his way into the history books as the winningest active driver in the sport and the seventh all-time winningest driver overall. But despite some serious fanfare from a truly magical stretch of racing, Scott’s remaining focused. “We’re here for the points,” he said following his 32nd career triumph. “It’s been a hell of a swing over a seven-day period.”
