AMA Supercross 2013 - Round 12 Toronto

Monster Energy AMA Supercross - Round 12 of the AMA Supercross in Toronto, Canada.

The stadium is one of the bigger ones for indoor supercross and new for this year... the dirt is not frozen! Apparently the dirt is stored year to year and they have found a place not so cold. the wall jump has gone, but a good sand section has been put in again.

Breaking News # Chad Reed announced tonight that after Toronto he will have knee surgery to clean up his knee.

No Dean Wilson in the 250's (shoulder) or Trey Canard in the 450's (concussion).

250 Heat 1 - Blake Wharton and Vince Friese battle for the lead, Wharton's speed through the whoops sees him quickly in the lead and hold it til the end from Friese, Cole Thompson and Australia's Jackson Richardson.

250 Heat 2 - We learn about Australian Taylor Potter and his mechanic/girlfriend Alex. Taylor and Alex saved up their money from home and are driving a motorhome to try and qualify for races in the AMA supercross series.

Marvin Musquin gets the holeshot ahead of Justin Hill. Hill and Musquin have a good battle at the front with Decotis, Hahn and Faith battling behind.

Hill trails Musquin by less than a second, but is unable to get by. Decotis is third, Faith is fourth and Hahn after a slide out finishes fifth.

Aussie Taylor Potter had to go to the LCQ, got a good start then dropped it in the whoops so unfortunately he doesn't qualify for the main.

250 Main Event - Musquin gets a great start ahead of Wharton and Hahn.

Justin Hill, after looking fast in his heat is walking off the track holding his wrist.

By the end it's Musquin taking his third win in a row! Hahn moved past Wharton for second.

Villopoto looks fast, but Millsaps is controlling the lines and keeps the lead. Dungey gets by Reed for third then stalls before the triple and lets Reed past again.

By lap twelve Villopoto jumps to the inside of Millsaps after the finish line and takes over the lead.

A healthy Millsaps lead Villopoto for twelve laps. Coming into the weeks break, if Millsaps can stay healthy and get in some good practice I think he could hold off Villopoto next race!

Reed is off for surgey and will miss the next round. Stewart needs to carry practice and heat race speed to the main. Dungey needs to get aggressive.
