Oakley’s Villopoto Takes Win Number Five in Toronto

ryanv2 Monster Energy AMA Supercross, an FIM World Championship, made its first and only visit outside the United States with much success as 42,083 devoted Canadian fans packed into Toronto’s Rogers Centre for the 10th stop of the 2010 season. It was another strong night for Oakley’s Ryan Villopoto, as he raced to his fifth win of the year.

As the gates dropped on the premier AMA Supercross class main event, Trey Canard, grabbed the Spike Holeshot Award followed by Oakley’s Ivan Tedesco, and Villopoto. Prior to the conclusion of the first lap, Villopoto made his move for the lead around Canard and went on to lead all 20-laps of the main event.

“I really wouldn’t be in this position without all of my team and everyone involved,” said Villopoto. “The last couple weeks we’ve been on it and it’s what we need to do. (The racing is) close and it’s been tough. I need to make up ground and I got to make those passes quick. I (also) need to keep getting good starts.”

Current points leader Oakley’s Ryan Dungey, started the race in fourth but worked his way into second place on lap five and ran there the rest of the way aboard his Suzuki, minimizing Villopoto’s advantage.

Oakley’s Dungey currently holds a 17-point lead over Oakley’s Villopoto in the AMA Supercross standings. The 2010 Monster Energy AMA Supercross season continues next weekend from the brand new Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas.
