ROOST QUICK HITS
JOKER LANE Ryan Dungey wanted to win the Monster Cup so bad, he decided to skip the Joker Lane and see if anyone noticed. Needless to say, people noticed, and he was docked five positions.
GATE DROP The riders that are on the right- hand side of the picture are still waiting for their gate to drop. The dual-gate drop is a cool concept—if they both drop.
BACK ON THE TRACK The GOAT was back on the track during opening cere- monies of MEC, then traded his helmet for headphones and a mic, adding some color com- mentary during the races.

THE CHAMP Ryan Villipoto had a rough night in Vegas but was able to walk away under his own power, guaranteed he will be back stronger than before and ready to race in January. KENNY’S COMING Ken Roczen showed loads of speed at the MEC, making it very interesting on where he will stack up in the 450 class in 2014.
If the 2013 Monster Energy Cup is any indication of what’s to come during the 2014 Supercross season, we are in for a treat. With lightning-fast rookies like Tomac and Roczen showing flashes of brilliance, only to be outdone by seasoned veterans Stewart, Villopoto and Dungey. JS7 surprised most of the crowd in attendance with his dominating perfor- mance. Stewart battled the best in the busi- ness, coming out the victor. We can’t wait for the gate to drop at A1 in January. For more informa- tion, check out

MONSTER ENERGY CUP
IS HE BACK? James Stewart showed the speed of his old self at this year’s Monster Energy Cup. Will it still be there come January? Only time will tell. DOWN HARD Ryan Villopoto had some competition this year. He ended up going down hard in the second race battling Stewart and decided to call it a night.
