If you thought quarter one was good, quarter two was even better as nearly every race was just so crucial to both the supercross and motocross championships. With five rounds remaining in supercross, it was still all to play for a five riders (Reed, Villopoto, Dungey, Stewart and Canard) all still had a chance to win the 450 title. Unfortunately, this would be whittled down to four as Canard would break his femur with three rounds remaining in a practice crash at Comp Edge, as he got ready for the outdoors.
This would essentially become three, after the penultimate round at Salt Lake City saw Villopoto win, with Stewart only managing a 10th place. He was down 23pts on the leader RV, so was pretty much out. Dungey was 12pts behind RV and Reed was nine, so as long as RV stayed up, chances are, he'd take the title. Despite Reed winning, RV did enough and secured his first title of 2011 as they headed into the outdoors.
With Canard out, and Stewart ruling himself out as well, it was down to Reed, Dungey and Villopoto to once again provide the entertainment. These three riders would only finish off the podium once each in the first 10 motos, and included were some awesome battles. There was also some bad luck as Dungey would run out of fuel at Freestone while leading, costing him 25 valuable points. Pourcel would make a brief appearance stateside, racing four motos, but only finishing two of them, before taking a break and moving over to Europe. At the end of June, Reed would be leading the championship by eight points over RV, with Dungey third, 21 points back. Fourth place was Kevin Windham, a staggering 75pts behind already.
In the 250 class, Barcia would wrap up the East coast title without too much incident, going into Las Vegas with a massive lead over Wilson. The west coast was much tighter as Broc Tickle and Eli Tomac battled it out. The whole race those two were swapping places, as well as battling with Cole Seely and Josh Hansen. Eventually Tickle would come out on top though, but he would have to share the headlines as Ken Roczen would win his first ever supercross race. In the East/West Shootout, Ryan Sipes would take the honors.
While Pro Circuit only won one of the titles in the supercross, in the early stages of the outdoors, it was all Kawisaki as they won the opening 10 motos. The wins were split between Blake Baggett (5), Dean Wilson (3) and Tyla Rattray (2) but it'd be Wilson with the consistency who'd be leading the championship, with a gap of eight points to Rattray, and 20 points to Baggett.
Both championships were looking good though, and with seven rounds left, it was still very much all to play for.
