2010 San Francisco Supercross Results

Saturday, January 30, 2010
Ryan Villopoto pushes his Monster Kawasaki through the corner.
Ryan Villopoto finally put it together with a valiant charge that netted him the first victory of his 2010 season.
Ryan Dungey looked ready to collect his third victory on the Rockstar Makita Suzuki at Round 4 of the Monster Energy AMA Supercross in San Francisco, but he had the wily veteran Kevin Windham to deal with who posted the fastest qualifying time on the soggy course.

Unfortunately, Windham had a terrible outing on the Geico Powersports Honda and the challenge during tonight’s 20-lap main event never materialized. Ryan Villopoto had a slow start to his sophomore 450 SX season, but the Monster Energy Kawasaki rider found his groove in AT&T Park. RV put his KX450F to the task after rounding the first circuit in sixth. He was into the top-three by Lap 6 and chasing down San Manuel Yamaha’s Josh Hill, another northwest rider with blazing speed this season. RV dispatched the YZ450F rider just before the halfway point and set out after Dungey who was trying to run and hide up front.

Roger DeCoster’s star Suzuki rider enjoyed the holeshot but made a mistake on Lap 11 with a crash that dropped him to third and then Red Bull Honda’s Davi Millsaps, who also crashed on Lap 4, forced his way past as well. “I lost my foot and went sailing,” said Dungey. “It could have been a lot worse. I am glad I am not hurt.”

San Manuels Josh Hill got a taste of the good life. The Yamaha rider led for part of the main in Anaheim before Dungey caught and passed him.
Josh Hill continues to impress with his speed and staying power. He currently holds a two-point advantage over Villopoto in the championship.
Hill was unable to mount a comeback and Villopoto raced ahead to the checkers by nearly four seconds. It is the second-consecutive runner-up for Hill, who made up ground in the title chase. It was the first time for Millsaps on the box this season.

“The track was tough and slippery,” said Villopoto. “It was hard to put in 20 perfect laps out there tonight. It wasn’t the start that I wanted, so I played catch-up. It is a long season with a lot of racing left.”

Dungey still leads the season standings by 11 points, but with James Stewart’s return date uncertain, this was a perfect opportunity. Fourth on the night and emerging unscathed from the crash is still a positive outcome and the RM-Z450 rider will regroup for next weekend’s race in San Diego.

Supercross Lites

Trey Canard was second at the Lites series opener at A1.
Trey Canard led wire-to-wire at AT&T Park and finally stopped Jake Weimer's win streak.
Trey Canard got his first win of the season in San Francisco and became the first man to knock off Monster Pro Circuit Kawasaki’s Jake Weimer. The two set the stage for a showdown by each winning a heat race to start the evening. It was the Number 38 of Canard that completed the first lap out front with Weimer’s KX250F screaming on his heels and Broc Tickle in tow. Cole Seely trailed in fourth and the quartet held their positions until Lap 12 when Wil Hahn snuck his Troy Lee Designs Honda past his teammate, Seely. After starting down in 12th, Hahn’s charge came up short and he failed to crack the podium.

Canard held off the advances to finish four seconds ahead of Weimer and pick up three points in the championship race to pull within 16. “I had a rough start to this season, and I am finally starting to come around,” said Canard.

Tickle was another seven seconds back on his DNA Division 7 Yamaha and he sits in fourth behind Hahn. Despite finishing second, Weimer still controls the series from a comfortable standpoint.

“I hate losing and I lost tonight, but I have the points lead and am thankful for everyone that has helped me get here,” Weimer said.

DR -Dungey's Crash  February 2, 2010 10:24 PM
Well, Ryan Dungey could have simply put the win into his pocket, and then in the middle made a mistake trying to hit that mid-tripple. The video clearly shows he lost his footing while rowing his bike approaching to a tripple. I guess he's a little bit curious of making the same mistake in his heat race.. It could have been a good battle between RV & RD.
Kevin-222 -?ktm?  February 1, 2010 11:20 AM

Track seemed pretty boring again this weekend. Was really getting excited seeing RV charging at RD, but then Dungey through it away with that weird crash all on his own and we didn't get to see any great battles. BTW, what's with all the KTM hate? They're not even fielding a team right now.
Tim B -Frank J and San Fran  January 31, 2010 08:50 PM
Frank J, no KTM finished in the top 20 in SX and only one finished mid-pack in the SX Lites. So I'm assuming you're throwing sarcasm out there.

I'm glad to see RV finally get some speed and win. Maybe now he'll get his stuff together and be a front runner.

It's also nice to see Dungey recover from his crash to finish 4th. That's what a rider must to do claim a championship.
brendon -ktm  January 31, 2010 05:24 PM

Frank J -KTM  January 31, 2010 11:15 AM
