COMPETITION NEEDS TO TAKE IT TO THE LIMIT TO CHALLENGE VILLOPOTO, SAYS EMIG –
The 2013 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship makes its second stop this weekend in Lakewood, CO
for the Rockwell Watches Thunder Valley National. FUEL TV telecasts the second motos live Saturday,
May 25 (5:00 PM ET), where 2011 champion Ryan Villopoto looks to further his points lead in the highly
competitive 450 Class. After missing the entire 2012 season with injury, the 2011 champion looked
dominant in his first race back winning both motos in stop one. FUEL TV analyst Jeff Emig says the
competition better step up their game if they want to hang with the former champ. “At round one,
Villopoto was just about as impressive as a rider can be. Not only that he was able to win over the likes
of Ryan Dungey and James Stewart, but his 15 second win margin came mostly in the second half of
the race. Going into round two, the competition had better plan on taking to the limit if they plan on
winning in Colorado.”
