Atlanta SX Spoiler ReportSaturday, February 25, 2012 | 10:05 PM
In a hard fought race, Ryan Dungey held off Ryan Villopoto for the win in front of a packed house in Atlanta's Georgia Dome. Dungey moved around suprise early race leader Cole Seely to get the lead a few laps in, and then held up under big pressure from RV to take his second win of the year. RV didn't get a very good start, and he and Dungey exchanged mistakes down the stretch as they pushed each other to the limit.
James Stewart started way back to get to third, but his charge slowed when a red caution light turned on for a triple jump, forcing him to roll while Dungey and Villopoto jumped. He lost several seconds there and settle for third. Davi Millsaps and Justin Brayton took fourth and fifth.
More to come later tonight in our full race report and results.
