I haven't heard that name since they took the american racing off TV. He was super fast, unbeatable back then. What's he been up to?

Keep us posted, I'd like to go watch.  :thumleft:

Great news, yes he won a number of US championships then went over to the World MX series and had an injury or two as well. Pretty quiet after that.

There is a very good You Tube one hour movie on villapoto, which gives very good insight into his life, and growing up issues.  Interestingly enough, his personal trainer is a South African boytjie, and he was the guy who got Villapoto back after his big injuries
