KTM’s Ryan Dungey: An Insider’s Look (Video)
Last Saturday, Red Bull KTM’s Ryan Dungey took his first win of 2013 Monster Energy AMA Supercross.
The victory arrived at Anaheim III, the third and final time that SX would met at Angel Stadium for 2013. Dungey had some mechanical issues with his SX-F 450 during qualifying, and finished in the final spot of Last Chance Qualifier to make it to the main event.
But when the main started, Dungey got into the lead on the second lap, and wasn’t challenged again.
A few days after his victory, KTM released the attached video, giving a behind-the-scenes look at the SX Champ. In it, he discusses commonplace things, like his favorite movies and aliens.
Dungey joined KTM in October, 2011, after his contract was complete with the Rockstar Makita Suzuki team. The Minnesota native won began dominating in 2009 with his AMA Supercross Lites Western Regional title, and then that year’s AMA Pro Motocross Championship 250cc class crown.
Dungey then raced on the 2009 Motocross des Nations where he was one of three members aboard the winning U.S. Team. In 2010, he became the first rider in history to win both the AMA Supercross and AMA Pro Motocross Championship in his rookie year. He again went on to lead the 2010 Motocross des Nations team to victory on U.S soil in Lakewood, Colo., and did the same in 2011.
