Throughout his career, Ryan Villopoto has let his riding do his talking. For the last three years he’s been the most dominant rider on the planet and given how seemingly untouchable he’s been en route to three straight Monster Energy Supercross titles, it’s surprising to think that he’s done so unassumingly.

In reality, that’s how it’s been. His quiet demeanor and get-the-job-done style has set him apart from dominant stars of the past, but make no mistake about it, Villopoto is still the sport’s brightest star even if he doesn’t necessarily crave the spotlight. As the start of a new season looms in just a matter of hours inside Angel Stadium, Villopoto is gearing up for a historic run at a fourth career title.

Monster Energy Supercross is home to the biggest thrills, but also the biggest spills. When a rider goes down, they go down in a big way. Unfortunately, the 2013 season saw several riders slam hard.

Here’s a look back at the gnarliest crashes from this past season.

Zach Bell’s Crash At Dallas: While making his  250SX debut, GEICO Honda’s Zach Bell was leading his heat race when he suffered what many believe to be the worst crash of the season. While launching off a triple, Bell’s foot caught the peak of the jump which ejected him from the bike. His body flew through the air before slamming to the dirt-covered concrete. Miraculously, Bell would walk away under his own power, advance out of the LCQ and race in his first career Main Event.
