Byron's sure to be hunched over a laptop after the checkers are flown, caught in his own little version of heaven. Whether on dirt, street or a combination of both, MotoUSA's newest addition knows the only thing better than actually riding is telling the story of how things went down.

Yoshimura Suzuki’s James Stewart staged a remarkable come-from-behind performance for the 450 SX win in Toronto, giving him 49 career victories and second-place outright on the all-time win list. Team Honda Muscle Milk’s Justin Barcia finished in second followed by Red Bull KTM’s Ryan Dungey in third.

Dungey’s teammate, Ken Roczen, scored the holeshot but had Barcia on his rear tire through the opening laps. The Honda ace pushed past Roczen soon after the start and held the front through the majority of the race. JGRMX’s Justin Brayton and Dungey held to third and fourth early on followed by Motosport.com’s Weston Peick and Monster Energy Kawasaki’s Ryan Villopoto.

Villopoto was off his game and started slipping back in position, dropping to eighth after five laps. Dungey moved ahead of Brayton as the race reached mid-point and from there running order remained steady until Stewart showed up.

Bubba had been rebounding from a lackluster start which left him back in ninth through the opening lap. With eight laps remaining he got ahead of Dungey for podium position and then dispatched Roczen two laps later. The following rotation saw Stewart blow past Barcia for the lead, and from there JS7 was unchallenged, building a three-plus second gap on the field before the checkers.

Roczen lost a bit of steam late in the race and Brayton moved into fourth with four laps to go. RV, on the other hand, got a late burst of energy and crawled back up the ranks a bit, getting past Peick for sixth.

Villopoto leaves Toronto with his points lead intact, 25 points ahead of Dungey in second. Stewart is third followed by Roczen in fourth and Brayton in fifth.
