Emotional Sweep! James “Bubba” Stewart Claims Supercross-St. Louis Victory, Dungey and Villopoto Round Out Podium
It doesn’t get much more dramatic than this, folks. Oakley’s Motocross Superstar James “Bubba” Stewart literally shed tears of joy following his resounding victory at Supercross in St. Louis this past weekend – topping an Oakley-packed podium with fellow O riders Ryan Dungey and Ryan Villopoto rounding out the winner’s group. The joyful weeping came as Bubba tasted the fruit of victory for the first time since Anaheim II – and on the heels of some super dramatic races where gnarly crashes, in-race collisions and vicious battles dominated the scenery for the industry veteran.
The intense battle for the Supercross Championship lead has been nothing short of a rodeo this year – with the top riders bucking each other off as more drama unfolds every race. Dallas was no different. Oakley MX star Ryan Villopoto emerged with a solid second place finish in the Lonestar State – kicking him back up into the standings lead and sending last week’s leader Reed six points back. O’s own defending Ryan Dungey rounded out the podium after scoring his first win last week, keeping him well in the hunt himself. But as always, it wasn’t a pretty road. In fact, it was downright nasty.
