Monster Energy Supercross has left the confines of the United States for the first time all season, embarking on the Great White North for round 12 in Toronto, Canada. The track is shaping up nicely, and features a very long start straight followed by a tricky rhythm section, a huge bowl turn, then an enormous set of whoops that will likely cause trouble all night.
Monster Energy Kawasaki’s Ryan Villopoto has taken control of the series, winning three straight and four of the last five to open up a 9-point gap over Rockstar Energy Racing’s Davi Millsaps. Meanwhile, GEICO Honda’s Wil Hahn is trying to fend off a red hot Marvin Musquin (Red Bull KTM) in the 250SX class.
