Steve CoxJames Stewart celebrates his win in Oakland after letting last weekend's race win slip out of his hands.

Most races in 2011 have been decided by a mistake at the front of the pack, and the Oakland Supercross wasn't any different. This week, the biggest difference was who made the mistake...

Broc Tickle won his first main event of the 2011 season in Oakland, but it's how he did it that's the most notable, as he had to come through the pack and eventually pass his teammate and points leader Josh Hansen for the lead. That's what he did, and he took the win over Hansen while also pulling closer to Hanny in the points chase. James Stewart snatched away his second victory of the season and took over the points lead when Ryan Villopoto crashed out of the lead early in the Oakland main. The series now heads back to Anaheim again this weekend with someone other than Villopoto leading the points for the first time this year.
