Awe-Inspiring: Ryan Villopoto Emerges Victorious at Daytona Supercross, Bubba Stewart Picks Up From Huge Crash, Finishes 9th
It doesn’t get much more dramatic than this, folks. Oakley superstar rider James Bubba Stewart sustained a huge crash at Daytona International Speedway this past weekend after absolutely smoking the field from the starting gate on during the main event – sending fellow Oakley rider Ryan Villopoto to the checkered flag with his second straight Supercross Daytona victory. Defending Supercross champ Ryan Dungey also smashed his way from the middle of the pack after a shaky start – to a solid third-place finish. Of course, there’s always some kind of intense action going down at Supercross. No surprise there. But this year in Florida – on a brutal, choppy track designed by Oakley Motocross Legend Ricky Carmichael – the gnarly cake went straight to Bubba, who absolutely dazzled the industry with one of the most inspiring displays of guts and talent as of late.
If the final winter MotoGP tests in Sepang (Malaysia) were a sign of things to come this season, the Big O is set to kick some serious arse. Oakley star Casey Stoner raised eyebrows in late February as he absolutely owned the track on the final day of the second official test – rocking the two minute barrier with a shocking time of 1m 59.665s on just lap two of day three on his Honda RC212V. Even crazier: the 2007 MotoGP Champ was playing around with different settings while posting the time – the fastest ever MotoGP time around the Sepang circuit.
Oakley athletes could be spotted at events around the world in February. Check out this gallery to see some of their finer moments caught on film.
