About Ryan Dungey
Multi-Supercross & Motocross Champion

At 27 years old, Ryan Dungey has already won every title in the sport of Motocross. His dominance began in 2009 when he won both the Lites Supercross Championship and the 250 Motocross Championship. He followed that with a stellar 2010 campaign, stepping up to the 450 class and winning the Supercross Championship and Motocross Championship in his rookie season. He became the 2nd youngest rider in the history of the sport to accomplish that feat. He then lead Team USA to victory in the 2010 Motocross Des Nations.

Before the start of the 2012 season, Ryan made the decision to reunite with his mentor Roger DeCoster on the Red Bull / KTM Factory team. The relationship has been incredibly successful, taking only 2 races for KTM to bring home its FIRST EVER Supercross victory. Ryan also reeled off 10 consecutive victories during the 2012 Motocross season and won the overall Motocross title.

Ryan has since finished in the top 3 overall of each Supercross and Motocross season. 2015 was an outstanding year for Ryan as he secured both the 2015 AMA Supercross and 2015 AMA Motocross overall titles, cementing his mark on the sport for years to come. Entering 2016 at the peak of the sport, Ryan won the 2016 AMA Supercross Championship once more. He carried that spirit into 2017, most recently winning the Supercross Champion title for a third consecutive year. As a result of his hard work on the track, Ryan won the ESPY for Best Male Action Sports Athlete in both 2015 and 2016.

Ryan is supported by a family of racers. His dad and two brothers were amateur riders. They often travel with Ryan during the season, cheering him on during his quest to remain at the top of the sport.

Off the track, starting in 2012, Ryan partnered with St. Jude to create the St. Jude Ride & 5k Run featuring Ryan Dungey and Friends. The event benefits St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital while featuring a 5k run and bicycle rides of different lengths for all skill levels.
