Travis Pastrana, 16-year-old boy wonder, came from behind
to win the 125cc East main event in St. Louis in March 2000,
beating Brock Sellards. In his rookie season, Travis would
finish the year in 3rd place in the point standings, behind
Sellards (#2) and Stephane Roncada (#1). He also won the
Daytona Supercross in 2000. Travis went on to win the 125cc
National Championship (outdoor motocross) in an amazing
come-from-behind series victory over Roncada in the very last
moto of the year. Also in 2000, Travis defended his X-Games
Freestyle Motocross title in San Francisco. He kept his
Suzuki RM125 on dry land (unlike the infamous "Bay
Launch" in 1999) and attempted the first backflip in X-Games
Jeremy McGrath, King of Supercross, won the 250cc Main
Event in St. Louis and soundly defeated the rest of the field
for the 2000 series championship, his 7th. Jeremy pretty
much shattered every Supercross record there is and rode
again for Yamaha in 2001 and 2002.
