Villopoto currently holds fifth in points but will fall out of the top-5 after Toronto.

Monster Energy Kawasaki’s Ryan Villopoto will miss his second straight week of the Monster Energy AMA Supercross, an FIM Championship and will not compete at the Toronto round. Villopoto is still feeling the effects of a viral infection and looks to return to racing as soon as he can.

“I want to be out there racing,” said Villopoto. “Right now I’m listening to what my doctors are telling me and they are saying I shouldn’t race this week. As much as I want to be at the track for my sponsors, fans and myself, I have to get better so I can ride at my full potential.”
