Ryan Villopoto has become the first rider to win two 450 main events this season, while Eli Tomac lost his first race in Oakland. Each of these headlines made the points races more exciting.. What questions need to be answered as we head into the final Anaheim of the season?
Q1. Mike Alessi was able to grab his first top 5 of 2013, but can he back that up?
Q2. After winning Phoenix it looked as though Justin Barcia had all of the momentum in the series, unfortunately he has had a rough couple of weeks. Can Barcia turn his season around this week?
Q3. Has Jason Anderson found the confidence to continually make the podium week in and week out?
Q4. Martin Davalos is on a one good race, one bad race pattern. Anaheim 3 lands on a bad race weekend based on this, will he prove this formula wrong?
Q5. Eli Tomac has gone from on top of the world to third in points, how will he bounce back?
Q6. The second turn pile up last weekend proved to be bad luck for anyone not named Villopoto and Millsaps. Can any of the players put a stop to the on fire reigning champion?
Q7. Vince Friese and Matt Goerke have been overachieving so far this season, can they continue their successes?
Q8. Jake Weimer sat out in Oakland because he was sick, which in turn handed over sixth in points to Andrew Short. Can Weimz pick up where he left off?
Q9. Cole Seely sits second in points to Ken Roczen after another podium finish last weekend. He rides really well in Angel Stadium, will it award him a win?
Q10. It has been a consistent series so far for Kyle Cunningham with 11,8,9,7 finishes. Coming off of his best ride of the season in Oakland, can he step his game up a little more and make the top five?
