What Really Happened at Toronto Supercross And Results - Dirt Rider Magazine

The Monster Energy AMA Supercross series made its annual trip to Canada for the Toronto round of the series. For the most part, riders come to expect crappy tracks and low turnouts at Toronto because of the dirt that's used; however, this year the race drew its biggest crowd ever, at around 49,000. Most of the riders still complained about the track, however, but at least the dirt wasn't frozen underneath the top layer like it was a few years ago when the series regulars raced on what they called the "moon's surface".This year, both Ryan Villopoto and Justin Barcia came in as clear favorites, and neither rider disappointed. In the meantime, James Stewart was a no-show after suffering a slight concussion (among other minor injuries) last week in Indy, and decided at the last minute to take another week off to recover.This race is usually cold and rainy or snowy, which makes it hard on the guys working in the pits. The pits are outside and across the street from the Rogers Center, and most of the big teams either work on the bikes inside their rigs, or put up tents for the mechanics to work in. The smaller teams move tools, parts and bikes inside the stadium into the corridor that runs around underneath the seating areas. It's a cramped situation, but it seems to work.It's always interesting getting factory rigs with bikes and parts across the border for this race and each year there's usually some kind of controversy, although this year seemed to go pretty smooth since most of the teams have had several years of experience with the process.Interestingly, the teams with really big rigs rented shorter tractors for their semis in Indy because a tractor/trailer rig can only be a certain length from nose to tail to cross the border and most of the U.S. rigs are too long.Read more about What Really Happened at Toronto SX by clicking here
