Who done what in Angels Stadium, yo!
Defending champ Ryan Villopoto won the season opener of the Monster Energy AMA Supercross beating Chad Reed and Ryan Dungey at Angel Stadium on Saturday night. Villopoto won at Anaheim for the second straight year, beating Reed by 12.2 seconds.
“It was a phenomenal night for me,” said Ryan. “I didn’t have the heat race I wanted, so I didn’t have a great gate pick. Once I was out front I wanted to lay down fast laps and make no mistakes. I did make one small one, but overall, it was a great race for me.”
Reed who finished four points behind Villopoto last year in the 17-race championship, added, “Villopoto made us look silly out here tonight. I am just happy to get second place tonight in this field of riders.”
Cole Seely won the Supercross Lites race. The Honda rider secured the lead on the second lap and went on to his third career victory. Tyla Rattray was second on his Kawasaki.
“I couldn’t think of a better way to start the season,” said Seely. “To get a win here tonight in front of my family and friends is huge. I learned last year that consistency is key, and I hope to be on the podium at every race.”
