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.
