We’ve almost been waiting for the ball to drop that resulted in the kind of dominant ride that has not only made Ryan Villopoto a back-to-back-to-back champion, but also the most dominant rider on the planet. In Daytona, RV was in top form. It was his best ride of the season and the most convincing performance of the year thus far. All this doesn’t bode well for the likes of Ryan Dungey and Ken Roczen, who now face a deficit of over one race in the standings. Villopoto is starting to find that groove that separates him from everyone else and he remains the frontrunner in the Power Rankings this week.

Each week, The Power Rankings will recognize the movers and shakers in Monster Energy Supercross.

The Pro Circuit Kawasaki dominance continued in Daytona with the team’s second podium sweep of the season. With three different winners out east and a total of five different winners in the 250SX Class this season, Pro Circuit is entering uncharted territory for itself as a team as well as supercross. Their East Region start has historic undertones and with his fourth consecutive top-two finish, the rookie Adam Cianciarulo continues to pace the Power Rankings this week.

Daytona is as brutal as they come and it’s for that very reason why the winners of the prestigious event are a who’s who of the sport. Last Saturday night, a pair of familiar faces with past success at the World Center of Racing stood atop the podium. With this big test now out of the way for the world’s best riders, the 2014 Monster Energy Supercross season now hits the home stretch and, unfortunately for the 450SX Class field, time is not on their side as they look to track down Ryan Villopoto.

Each week, The Holeshot will provide 22 takeaways – a full starting gate – from the most recent round of action.
