ROCK ’N’ ROLL WEEKEND!

Yes we can Dungey celebrates first Outdoor victory

Another history-making weekend as Red Bull/KTM Factory rider Ryan Dungey claims KTM’s first-ever U.S. 450 Motocross class win at the third round of the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship at Thunder Valley MX Park.

Dungey’s victory marks the first for the KTM brand in the 450 Motocross class. This is the secondmilestone Dungey has accomplished for the European manufacturer this season. Dungey earned KTM its first Supercross win at the Phoenix Supercross race earlier this season and now gave KTM its first 450 Motocross overall win just a few months later.

Ryan Dungey: “I’m really happy to give Red Bull/KTM its first overall 450 Motocross win in the US. It’s great to be a part of something that’s full of firsts. Everyone on the team works really hard and we receive tons of support from KTM worldwide.”

Roczen close to first victory at the Outdoors

Ken Roczen earned 2-4 moto scores to place 3rd overall in the 250 Motocross class while Musquin’s 5-5 moto scores placed him 5th overall for the day!

Tony Cairoli: “I’m very happy about my weekend. Yesterday I was not so fast and struggled a bit but today everything went well. The bike was perfect and it’s cool to win here in the home of my main contenders.”
