Ahh the return to the great outdoors. It doesn't get much better than this folks. The smell of forty bikes ripping off the line, the sun beating down on your face, the scantily-clad women, who doesn’t enjoy that, right? Round 1 of the Lucas Oil AMA Pro Motocross Championship kicked off this past weekend at Hangtown and the heat was brought early and often from many of the top contenders. You will read plenty about the racing throughout the week so let's get to the lap charts, brought to you by Motion Pro.

Monster Energy Kawasaki's Ryan Villopoto was fighting illness throughout the week leading up to Hangtown but that didn't stop the him from setting the fastest lap in both motos with a 2:13.636 in moto one and a 2:14.639 in moto two. Villopoto would finish third overall on the day, but things should only get better from here for RV2, as he should be at full strength by Freestone.
