2012 AMA Supercross WallpaperDuring his Supercross debut on the Red Bull KTM SX-F 450 in Angel Stadium Saturday, Ryan Dungey earned the Austrian motorcycle manufacturer its first-ever U.S. SX podium.
This was after Dungey took third behind Anaheim I race winner Ryan Villopoto (Monster Energy Kawasaki), and second-place finisher Chad Reed (Two-Two Motorsports Honda).Dungey began the Anaheim Supercross weekend on a quick note, qualifying third fastest in practice and took second in his heat race.During the Supercross main event, Dungey began in fifth, but was soon battling with JGRMX/Toyota/Yamaha’s James Stewart for the final podium position. But Stewart ended crashing, finishing sixth, allowing Dungey to take third.Ryan Dungey (Red Bull KTM 450 SX-F Factory Edition Supercross) says: “My bike ran flawlessly tonight. I would have definitely liked to pass Chad and take second tonight, but I am happy to earn KTM its first podium. I can’t thank the team enough for all they have done for me in the development of this new bike.”Roger DeCoster (Red Bull/KTM Factory Team Manager) says: “The entire team is excited for the podium finish but we also know that 2nd place was within our reach tonight. We were happy with Ryan’s performance but we know we have some areas that need work and we will begin to correct them immediately. We hope to continue this success into next week and improve our position on the podium.”Attached above is wallpaper of Dungey at Anaheim I.Click motorcycle thumbnail to expand.

Suzuki V-Strom 1050 DE + Scott Casey – Living with PTSD and the Rolling Barrage
byMotos and Friends by Ultimate Motorcycle
Hello everyone and welcome once again to Motos and Friends, a weekly Podcast brought to you by the editorial team at Ultimate Motorcycling.
My name is Arthur Coldwells.
The new Suzuki V-Strom DE has just been announced, and Avery Innis, Training and Publications Manager from Suzuki Motor USA, is just the expert to explain its nuances to us. The V-Strom has always been a superb, yet inexpensive platform, and the new DE variant gets more serious about ADV riding. I find out from Avery whether the new upgrades are worthwhile; and the place that the new V-Strom has in the current market.
Our second segment covers a subject that’s a little more serious than usual.
Many veterans and first responders suffer from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, aka PTSD.
Scott Casey—himself a sufferer—decided to try and help his fellow vets, and started a cross-Canada charity ride in 2016 called the ‘Rolling Barrage’. It was—and is—incredibly successful.
It’s not just a tremendous ride. The Rolling Barrage is a place for like-minded sufferers and their supporters to ride together. They get some serious “wind therapy” whether it’s on just a stop, or a leg of the ride, one day, a weekend, or even the whole ride. Scott opens up with Associate Editor Teejay Adams about his personal history, and how he came to create such a brilliant and worthy real-world event that truly helps.
The Rolling Barrage is a supportive network of brothers and sisters. To quote Scott Casey: “this is the family you never knew you had”.
It was a Nation exploding into civil war. In 1992, the collapse of the former Yugoslavia triggered an international armed conflict that would last more than 3 years and eventually see nearly 100,000 people killed. Canadians were thrown into what was declared a peacekeeping mission, but it wasn’t. They were going well beyond the rules of engagement that were provided by the UN. Told by Scott Casey, Former Canadian Peacekeeper.
