AMA Supercross Goes North Of The Border

Ryan Villopoto in 2012 Toronto SX

Ryan Villopoto won on the Canadian track in 2012.

AMA Supercross will make its only international stop of the year when the motorsports series speeds into Toronto, Canada, for its next event. The city’s Rogers Centre will act as the home for the 12th round of the competition and give Canadians fans a chance to see some of the league’s top racers.

Ryan Villopoto is the favorite going into the race, having won the last two rounds and six of the 12 so far. He currently holds a nine-point lead and will look to extend that with a win in Toronto. The Kawasaki rider has been successful on the Canadian track before, winning there in 2012 en route to a championship title.

While a win would give Villopoto an even stronger grasp on the points lead, there is still an intense competition for the rest of the podium spots. Davi Millsaps and Ryan Dungey aren’t too far behind and have been consistently putting forth impressive performances on the track. Millsaps could regain the top spot from Villopoto with a victory, but a win for Dungey would further complicate the standings.
