All O: Supercross Atlanta Podium Utterly Owned By Oakley Team Riders, Ryan Dungey Tightens Championship Standings Race
Apparently, Oakley’s Motocross Team loves the A.T.L. In a monster sweep of the Supercross podium (and the Top Four overall finishes), the team, lead by resurging O star, Ryan Dungey, displayed its utter dominance in the Georgia Dome this past weekend. Rounding off the awards stage, Oakley’s defending Supercross Champ, Ryan Villopoto (RV), and James “Bubba” Stewart gripped onto their positions amongst the riders in the top of the Championship standings – capping off yet another super intense battle for 450 supremacy in the land of peaches.
Ryan Dungey made major noise with bold moves in the off-season. Opting for a switch to KTM in efforts to reclaim his glory from 2010 Supercross and AMA Motocross Titles, Oakley’s Star Rider displayed his intentions for change. And if there were ever any doubts about his move, most were put to rest this past Saturday as he claimed a resounding Phoenix victory to hand KTM their first-ever Supercross triumph…ever. A raucous 49,236 fans watched Ryan dominate the Main Event, wire-to-wire after a grabbing the Holeshot. Although fellow Oakley riders Davi Millsaps and Ryan Villopoto were hot on his tail, the Minnesota speed demon pulled away to cruise to victory.

Ryan Villopoto picked up right where he left off…on fire. Oakley’s defending Supercross Champion (and AMA Motocross Champ) dominated the 2012 Supercross opener at Angel’s Stadium of Anaheim on Saturday, pulling away from the pack after grabbing the Holeshot to cruise onto a smooth victory in front of Chad Reed and fellow Oakley star Ryan Dungey. The impressive triumph topped off a brilliant evening that saw Oakley-backed Troy Lee Racing claim its own win in the Lite’s Main Event after Cole Seely raged back from behind to claim glory.
