Ryan Michael Dungey
Belle Plaine, MN
Date of Birth:
At only 22 years of age Ryan Dungey has won every title in the sport of motocross. In 2009 Ryan stormed onto the motocross scene winning both the Lites Supercross Championship and the 250 Motocross Championship. The world would quickly learn that he was just getting warmed up. In 2010 Ryan became the second motocross rider in the history of the sport to win the 450 Supercross Championship and the 450 Motocross Championship in his rookie season. He then went on to lead the USA to victory in the Motocross Des Nations that same year.
Ryan’s success continued in 2011. He once again lead the USA to victory at the Motocross Des Nations and with victories on both tours he finished the season 3rd in Supercross and 2nd in Motocross. In 2012 Dungey made a pivotal decision to rejoin his longtime mentor Roger DeCoster at the Red Bull/KTM Factory Team. In just the second race of the 2012 Supercross season Dungey delivered KTM its first ever Supercross victory.
All of Dungey’s tremendous success is not without a lot of hard work and encouragement from a family of racers. His dad, Troy, was an amateur racer and his siblings, Jade and Blake, were amateur competitors as well. They all travel with Ryan ensuring he is well supported during his mission to have continued success in motocross.
When he’s not out on the track, Ryan has become an integral part of Nike’s LIVESTRONG Campaign for cancer awareness. Ryan’s work with LIVESTRONG occupies a special place in his heart having lost his grandmother to cancer in 2005. Ryan’s career is dedicated to her memory.
