Who was the lone rider not on a Kawasaki to grab a podium spot in the first two rounds of 2007? Yamaha of Troy’s Jason Lawrence, who took third at Anaheim 1.
So Pro Circuit dominated the first two races. Round three was a little tougher, as Pourcel cased a jump and broke his shin bone, ending his SX season way too early. Villopoto went on to win round three in Anaheim, but two Yamahas joined him on the box with Jason Lawrence and Josh Hill.
Then Villopoto won round four. And five. And six. On February 17th, he won round seven in San Diego and wrapped up the Lites West Title—in February!
Round three of the 2011 tour comes up this weekend at Dodger Stadium. Can the Hansen/Tickle/Tyla Rattray trio eclipse the 2007 mark and put yet another pair (or trio) of team bikes on the box?
