The MXA gang wasn’t surprised when we got to Las Vegas and saw Ryan Villopoto in the pits—with his Yamaha YZ450F in tow. Why not? Because Jody was over at Pro Circuit on Wednesday to bring Ryan Villopoto’s YZ125 back to him after keeping it for a week to test, photograph and race. While he was there, the Pro Circuit guys were working on Ryan’s Yamaha YZ450F and the tell-tale sign that he was going to race it at the Monster Cup was that they were busy putting his signature hump in his seat.
We aren’t betting men, but we think that Ryan just wants to get a taste of his old life—he might like it so much that he would want to come back—or he might just race the first moto and feel that was good enough.
You can watch the Monster Cup on Saturday night on the Fox Sports2 channel (FS2).
