Villopoto-Win-Motocross-8-26-13Monster Energy rider Ryan Villopoto closed out a stellar 2013 season in true champion style, earning his eighth overall victory in the triple-digit heat at Round 12 of the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship in Lake Elsinore, Calif. After clinching the 450 Class championship last week in Utah, he didn’t need the win, but in typical Villopoto-fashion took control of both motos early and easily grabbed his seventh moto sweep of the season.

Villopoto’s season has definitely been one to remember, especially since he basically doubled his win-stats from 2011. Villopoto’s first 450 Class championship in 2011 concluded with 10 moto wins and three overall victories. With the same level of competition in 2013, Villopoto was out to prove his motocross skills and captured an amazing 18 moto wins and eight overall victories.
