Ryan Villopoto Profile Film
There’s no doubting Ryan Villopoto’s talent. In 2011, the Monster Energy Kawasaki rider took the AMA Supercross title in his second year of competing in the premier class, and followed that up with taking the AMA Motocross title.
And this year, he once again dominated, making history by winning the championship at Round 13 in Houston, the earliest clinch in the series’ history.
But behind all those wins resides a “most private, reserved and soft-spoken individual.” And now, the Volcom clothing company and Vans has produced “2 Be Continued: The Ryan Villopoto Film,” which provides an intimate look into RV2. The trailer is attached above.
Speaking of the film, Volcom says “To that end, Volcom set out to peel back the layers and dig out the soul and charisma of the champion. We traveled the nation over, meeting family, friends, industry members and a hero to discover the real RV. What we found, well, we’ll let the film and Ryan do the talking.”
The LIVE online premiere will be posted on the Volcom Facebook Page and available for iTunes download on June 21, 2012.
