Born into a family of racers, from early on it was clear that Ryan Dungey was something special. Fast forward through two decades, and having already notched up first place wins at the Supercross Lites Championship and the 250 Motocross Championship in 2009, the 2010 racing season proved to be a particularly memorable one for the American rider. Ryan started the season by showing that he belonged with the big boys in supercross. By the time the North American series was finished, he was crowned 2010 Supercross Champion.
But Ryan didn’t stop there – demonstrating his abilities as inarguably the best all-around motocross racer in the world, that same year he blitzed the competition in the AMA Motocross Championship and took the title. He thus finished the season as a history-maker, coming away as the first rookie in history to win both the premier Supercross and National Motocross titles in his inaugural season. To cap off the year, Dungey led Team USA to victory in the prestigious Motocross of Nations event, held on American soil in 2010 in Colorado.
By 2012, Ryan had joined the KTM family, bringing the team its first ever win in the AMA Motocross series. He finished his Supercross season in third place, despite a collarbone break that required surgery. At the 2013 AMA SX season finale in Las Vegas, Ryan finished second place, bringing his overall season points to 337 and a third place overall finish.
In 2014, Dungey kept his momentum, taking overall second places at both the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship 450 and the 2014 AMA Monster Energy Supercross Series, not to mention first place at Red Bull Unadilla National. With yet another stellar start in 2015, Ryan has demonstrated that commitment, hard work and sacrifice really do pay off with another AMA Supercross and AMA Motocross championship now under his belt.
Adam Cianciarulo #92
Continuing his impressive season, Adam Cianciarulo entered the main in the third qualifying spot. He started the main event in sixth, and from there methodically picked off riders. By the sixth lap, he found himself riding in fourth and was able to take advantage of a mistake by Joey Savatgy to secure third, where he would finish the race.
Joey Savatgy #17
Joey Savatgy started the main event with an incredible holeshot from the outside starting gate. He stayed with the front pack for several laps and was keeping pace in third, but a late mistake in the final few laps would lose him a few spots. He recovered quickly and battle back, ending the night in fourth.
Adam and Joey are sitting 3rd and 4th in the Championship as they head to Oakland.
Ken Roczen #94
The 450 class saw Ken Roczen put in an excellent rebound ride after a tough night at the A2 Triple Crown event. Working his way past title contenders Jason Anderson and Marvin Musquin to finish third on the night and gain valuable championship points. Ken leaves Phoenix in 3rd place in the points, just 12 back from the leader, Jason Anderson.
Chad Reed #22
In Glendale, Chad Reed found himself in the LCQ for the second week in a row as he continues to fight through his ankle injury. The dramatic LCQ saw Reed exit the first turn in third. After losing some ground, he would fight back to second; the crowd loved it. Reed would finish 19th in the main. His results aren’t there yet, but there's no quit in #22. Chad dawned a custom set of 360 Preme racewear to celebrate Australia day.
