The motocross action in Colorado this weekend was nothing short of stellar, with four different moto winners (Ryan Villopoto, Ben Townley, Davi Millsaps, and Tim Ferry) and multiple lead changes in both classes. There was also lots of drama over James Stewart's neck injury, following his crash the previous week in Unadilla. Oh, and did we mention that the day ended with a three-way tie for the overall win. Yep, James Stewart, Mike Alessi, and Andrew Short each had 40 points. And at the midway point of each Motocross-class moto, it was pretty much impossible to predict the winner.

This week's photo gallery is somewhat larger than what we've done in the past, but we think it reflects the great racing action. Take a look (the links are above), and check it out for yourself.
