Ryan Villopoto made his pro debut at the Broome-Tioga National in August of 2005, where he tried his hardest but crossed the finish line in fifteenth place.

Villopoto answered his critics the following weekend with an impressive top-five at Steel City, and ended the season on the podium at Glen Helen. Villopoto proved his arrival when he was invited to be part of Team USA for the 2006 Motocross des Nations, where he, James Stewart and Ivan Tedesco brought back the USA’s 17th MXdN victory. Today, Villopoto rides everyday just like when he was little. So far in 2012, he is in third place in points. With the upcoming supercross season approaching, he and all of the other riders prepare for a tough competition.
