Hurricane Irene. As of this writing (8pm Eastern Time), the MX races are scheduled to be run tomorrow just like normal. But the area near the race is already bracing for the huge storm, although the weather currently is fine. Racing is planned to go on just like normal, and coverage will be here on Supercross.com of 250′s, 450′s and Women’s.
Here below is info from MXSports – only seven points separate Monster Energy Kawasaki’s Ryan Villopoto and Rockstar/Makita Suzuki’s Ryan Dungey in the 450 Class, while TwoTwo Motorsports/Bel-Ray Racing’s Chad Reed sits 25 points out of the RV’s lead. In the 250 MX Lites Class, the Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki trio of Dean Wilson, Blake Baggett and Tyla Rattray continue to sit atop the standings, with Wilson holding a 25-point margin over Baggett, and 43 over Rattray.
Monster Energy Kawasaki – Ryan Villopoto took advantage of his first opportunity to wear the red number plate as the current points leader, by sweeping both motos of the day at the previous round from Unadilla.
The race marked the debut of the 2012 Kawasaki KX450F, and was also Ryan’s birthday.
“I felt like the bike was great for the amount of testing we did on it,” said Villopoto. “Although it wasn’t much, it was more than we had been able to do on the 2011 model. I think the KX450F is a great bike, and Kawasaki continued to improve on an already solid motorcycle.”

“I’m from Mont Tremblant, Quebec.” Benji Ritchie almost shouts, his elocution sounds like he’s gagging or has a major sinus infection — though, apparently this only happens when he says something in French.
“It’s a ski resort town somewhere a bit north of Montreal,” Ritchie continues, his accent mellowing,…
