Round 8 of the EA Sports Supercross Championship was held in the Louisiana Superdrome in New Orleans and, in a break from Mardi Gras, thousands of spectators saw Ricky Carmichael take his fifth consecutive victory. Team Suzuki's Kevin Windham put in another strong ride, finishing second, while Honda's Mike LaRocco finished on the final podium spot.

Team Yamaha's Jeremy McGrath finished in fourth after a crash took him out of contention. Sixteen points are all that's between Jeremy and Ricky in the title chase, and there are still several rounds to go.

In the 125-class, Suzuki's Travis Pastrana took the win over Kawasaki's Michael Brown and Team Yamaha's Nathan Ramsey...
