When he chose the legendary No. 2 as his number in 2008, many wondered whether Ryan Villopoto would be able to live up to the legacy Jeremy McGrath gave it during his illustrious career.
Since then, Villopoto has done much more than simply keep that number’s legacy alive. He has racked up a pair of 450 national championships in motocross and has amassed an even more dominant résumé in supercross, capped off by a fourth consecutive title one week ago to equal the record mark set by his predecessor McGrath.Ryan Villopoto, Supercross

Monster Energy Supercross’ anticipated return to New York for the first time in 23 years has the makings of a historic evening with Ryan Villopoto on the verge of securing a fourth consecutive title. Villopoto has been the rider to beat throughout the 2014 season and thanks to back-to-back wins, he needs just an 18th-place finish to continue his dominance of the sport. As a result, Villopoto tops the Power Rankings as he looks to do the same thing his hometown Seattle Seahawks did at the Super Bowl in February, win a world championship inside MetLife Stadium.
