Supercross’ Villopoto Pitches Strike (Video)


Ryan Villopoto & Miss Supercross at Angels Game

The current AMA Supercross Champion, Ryan Villopoto, threw out the first pitch at Angel Stadium Sunday ahead of the Los Angeles Angels taking on the Texas Rangers.

The result of the Monster Energy Kawasaki rider’s arm? A strike.

But Villopoto wasn’t alone; joining him on the pitcher’s mount was the woman who will be starting her third consecutive season as Miss Supercross – Dianna Dahlgren, who is also starring in a new web series titled “SX ed.”

The legendary Angel Stadium is a special place for Villopoto, having won four Supercross Class races at the unofficial home of Monster Energy Supercross. En route to his second consecutive Supercross Class Championship, Villopoto swept both races at Angel Stadium last year, including the season opener. During his Supercross Lites Class career at Angel Stadium, he won all three Main Events in 2007.
