Corona, Calif. (August 17, 2013) – After clinching his 2013 Monster Energy Supercross title one round early at the Salt Lake City stop, Monster Energy’s Ryan Villopoto provided a sense of deja vu when he collected enough points with his seventh overall victory to clinch his second Lucas Oil Pro Motocross 450 Class championship one round early at the inaugural event at Miller Motorsports Park in Tooele, Utah. Villopoto has yet to lose a motocross championship while racing a full season, adding another title to his three previously earned 250 Class championships and one 450 Class championship.
Villopoto entered the penultimate round needing six points to celebrate his fifth motocross championship. He was a man on a mission during the first moto as he grabbed the holeshot and started separating himself from the rest of the pack, eventually winning by 26.6 seconds. Villopoto’s second moto wasn’t much different as he quickly put a gap of his rival Ryan Dungey and rode to his ninth professional championship.

“I can’t wait for the season to start,” said Cianciarulo. “This is something I’ve been dreaming about since I saw my first ever supercross race when I was 4 years old. To be able to race for Mitch Payton and the Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki team is an honor. I am looking to learn a lot this year because everyone knows how good this team is and I know my job is to put more number one plates on the door of the truck.”
The world’s best professional and amateur motocross racers flocked to Las Vegas as the second annual Monster Energy Cup invaded Sam Boyd Stadium on Saturday night. While amateur racers vied for bragging rights as Monster Energy Cup Champion in either the Supermini or Amateur-All Star class, the professionals had their eyes on winning the Monster Million in what has become one of the most lucrative races in supercross and motocross racing history.
Supermini riders, Amateur All-Star riders, and the pros in the Cup Class would go to battle in their respective classes on a hybrid supercross/motocross track designed by Monster athlete Ricky Carmichael. Supermini and Amateur All-Star riders would race two motos each, and the best-combined finisher in each class would be crowned Monster Energy Cup Champion for that respective class. The pros in the Cup Class would duke it out in three motos. The pro with the best overall finish after all three motos would be crowned the 2012 Monster Energy Cup Champion and would take home a hefty purse, but would have to win all three motos in order to take home the coveted Monster Million.
Irvine, Calif. – After five days of motos at Mill Creek MX in Pell City, Ala., Monster Energy Kawasaki Team Green took home a total of 15 championships from the AMA Thor Spring Classic. Leading the team with three championships was Austin Forkner who was the most dominant rider of the week aboard his KX™85. Adam Cianciarulo went unchallenged in the Supermini classes, with a flawless scorecard. Veteran riders Clark Stiles, Mike Treadwell, and Earl May swept their respective classes. Justin Hill captured two championships earning his second title in the 450 A class after an exciting final moto win.
Best of the Best
After winning two titles at last week’s GNC Finals, Forkner was feeling confident coming into Mill Creek. His week started with a come-from-behind win in the 85 12-13 Mod foreshadowing that this week would end much like last week. The mud of an early morning moto dropped him to his only finish outside the top-five in the Jr. Mini 9-13 class, but Forkner was able to come back to win a total of six motos earning him the “Best of the Best” 85cc award for winning the most motos aboard his KX85.

Irvine, Calif. – Monster Energy Kawasaki Team Green riders converged at Loretta Lynn’s Dude Ranch in Hurricane Mills, Tenn. for the 2011 AMA Amateur National Motocross Championships and commanded 12 championships, 14 runner-up spots, and 14 third-place finishes. The week kicked off in usual fashion, with hundreds of families arriving at Loretta Lynn’s Ranch to setup their campsites for the week-long event. In celebration of its 30th anniversary, Team Green hosted several special events throughout the week, including a family dinner, a country-western concert, and a short film debut. The weather was hot and humid as expected, but a thunderstorm that rolled in Thursday night cooled things down and changed the track dynamic. Despite the ever-changing track and challenging three-moto format, Team Green riders won the majority of their classes, with a few riders sweeping their class aboard Kawasaki KX™85 and KX™450F’s.
Cianciarulo was unstoppable in the Supermini class, dominating all four motos that made up the Supermini Championship.

Mosiman blitzed the 85cc 7-11 class, winning back-to-back motos for the title, while Cantrell went 2-3 for second overall. The 50cc Open Championship was comprised of four motos, and Robertson finished on every podium, including taking two wins to capture the title victory.
