DETROIT, Mich. – The Red Bull KTM Factory team once again captured two podium finishes on Saturday for round eleven of the AMA 450SX Championship in Detroit, Michigan. After racing to what appeared to be his sixth victory of the season, Ryan Dungey was penalized two positions in the Main Event for a jumping infraction during a Red Cross flag. As a result, Dungey moved two positions down to third place, while his teammate, Marvin Musquin, moved up one position to second place.

Red Bull KTM Factory Team Manager, Roger DeCoster commented, “We were penalized two positions per the rulebook but the problem is that Ryan’s line was on the outside and his line of sight could not see the flagger who was on the inside holding the Red Cross flag at waist height. There were the yellow lights flashing, which means to use caution, and Ryan could see there was no bike or rider on the track and jumped as he didn’t see the flag. After Ryan passed, the flagger stepped further out onto the track.”

DeCoster added, “For the future we will push them to have the Red Cross flaggers wave more aggressively to be clearly seen. It’s a shame that Ryan was penalized for something that he gained nothing from in the race.”

In the day’s timed qualifying sessions, it was Musquin who secured the fastest qualifying time of the day, while his teammate Dungey qualified fifth. In 450SX Heat 2, Dungey got off to a great start, where he lead the heat race from start to finish. Meanwhile, Musquin experienced a big crash that ultimately ended his race early.

Musquin quickly bounced back, leading all five laps of the 450SX Semi 1 to capture the victory and a transfer position to the Main Event.

In the 450SX Main Event, the Red Bull KTM Factory teammates shot off the start together but it was Dungey who claimed the official holeshot. Musquin passed Dungey to take the lead on the opening lap but it wasn’t long before the reigning champion reclaimed the front position coming out of the whoop-section.

Dungey led a hard-charging Musquin for nearly the entire race, as Musquin applied pressure along the way. However, with only two laps to go Musquin slid out while running in the second place position, which allowed Jason Anderson to move past. Musquin quickly remounted to finish the race in third.

“I struggled a little bit in the whoops tonight but other than that I was happy with how I was riding until that one mistake near the end,” Musquin said. “It’s a bummer to finish in third but I know it’s good in the bigger picture to be on the podium every weekend.”

The podium celebration reflected Dungey’s victory, with Anderson in second and Musquin in a close third. However, the results were amended shortly after the podium celebration.

DAYTONA, Fla. – Red Bull KTM Factory riders captured two of the three podium positions on Saturday for round nine of the AMA 450SX Championship at Daytona International Speedway. Current points leader Ryan Dungey captured second overall, while his teammate Marvin Musquin rounded out the podium in third place.

Dungey and Musquin qualified third and fourth place respectively on a uniquely tough Daytona Supercross track. Musquin lined up in 450SX Heat 1, where he got off to a great start aboard his KTM 450 SX-F Factory Edition. Musquin quickly made a pass on fellow Frenchmen Christophe Pourcel to take over the lead, where he went on to capture the heat race win.

In 450SX Heat 2, Dungey grabbed a third place start and quickly moved into the second place position. However, Dungey wasn’t able to make the move on Tomac for the lead, ultimately finishing second in his heat.

In the 450SX Main Event, both Red Bull KTM Factory riders got off to a great start but it was Dungey who claimed the official holeshot. With Musquin and Dungey close in tow, Eli Tomac commanded the lead on the opening lap.

Dungey maintained a close second place position throughout the 20-lap Main Event but wasn’t able to make a pass on the leader. In the end, Dungey finished only two seconds back to claim his ninth consecutive podium finish with second overall. The defending 450SX Champion gained valuable points in the championship chase, where he will maintain the lead heading into round ten.

“Daytona is always a nasty one,” commented Dungey. “But it’s good to be on the podium and pick up some valuable points in the overall championship.”

Musquin settled into third behind his teammate Dungey, where he kept a solid pace throughout the Main Event. Musquin’s great performance earned him a third-career 450SX podium finish and a boost into seventh place in his rookie championship season.

“To be second and third tonight it a good result for the team,” Musquin said. “To be third tonight is big for me and I’m happy to be up on the podium again.”

Atlanta, GA – Red Bull KTM Factory Team riders Ryan Dungey and Marvin Musquin finished first and second respectively at the eighth round of the AMA 450 Supercross Championship Series held at the Georgia Dome in front of a sold out crowd.

Dungey earned the second fastest qualifying spot of the night and was placed in the first heat race. He earned a fifth place start and worked his way up into third. He then made a small mistake with two laps to go and lost two positions. When the third and fourth place riders crashed in the sand section, he moved around them and picked up third. He held on to that spot to qualify into the main event.

Musquin was in the next 450 heat where he pulled the holeshot. A few mistakes early on caused him to drop a few positions. He eventually settled in fourth place which he held through the finish to take a transfer position.

When the gate dropped for the main event, both teammates launched their KTM 450 SX-F Factory Edition bikes to the front of the pack. Musquin came out second around the first corner while Dungey was back a few spots in fifth. Musquin immediately grabbed the lead from BTO KTM holeshot winner Justin Brayton. Meanwhile, Dungey made quick passes and found himself in second place by the end of the lap two. From there he pressured his teammate for the next eighteen laps. The Atlanta crowd was on their feet and the teammates raced each other only a few bike lengths apart.

With one lap to go, the pair came up on a lapped rider that moved into Marvin’s line and caused him to roll off the track. Musquin’s incident handed Dungey the lead. Dungey went around the next few turns and crossed the finish to take his fifth win of the season. Musquin quickly recovered and finished in second place for a 1-2 finish for the Red Bull KTM Factory Team.

“Marvin was so strong tonight,” stated Dungey after the race. “I was pressuring him but couldn’t make the pass until that last lap. I’m really happy to share the podium with him tonight.”

Musquin remarked, “It is hard to lead for 19 laps and lose the race on the final lap. I am happy for Ryan but I really wanted this win. This is my best finish in the 450 class and I was pushing hard. I’m happy for the Red Bull KTM Team to top the podium.”

Arlington, TX – Red Bull KTM Factory rider Ryan Dungey finished 2nd overall at the Dallas Supercross held at AT&T stadium after a 20 lap battle for the lead position. His teammate, Marvin Musquin, came from a first turn crash to an impressive 6th place result at the seventh round of the AMA 450 Pro Supercross Championship.

Dungey turned the fastest lap time in the afternoon sessions to earn him first gate pick in his heat. At the gate drop of the heat race, he came out in 6th position. He quickly moved into 3rd and would remain in that spot through the checkered flag to transfer into the main.

Musquin earned a 7th place start in his heat and moved up as high as 4th place before suffering a crash. His crash sent him back to 8th where he finished the race. His result did not earn him a qualifying position and he had to go to the semi race.

Musquin earned a 2nd place start in the semi and held that position throughout the entire race. His runner-up position earned him a spot on the main event starting line.

When the gate dropped for the main event, Dungey leaped off the line to a 2nd place start behind Ken Roczen. Musquin had a good jump but got pinched off and crashed in the first roller of the rhythm section. He quickly recovered but returned to the race in last position. Meanwhile, out front Dungey battled Roczen for the lead position. The two rider’s swapped positions twice in the opening laps before Dungey fell to 2nd. Dungey pressured Roczen for the entire race and had the crowd on their feet for the final lap. He was unable to make the pass and finished 2nd earning valuable points toward the championship chase.

“The track was really tough today,” stated Dungey after the race. “It was a fight until the end. I really tried to push hard at the end but couldn’t make that pass. It’s just part of racing but I’m glad to finish on the podium.”

Musquin was able to move from his last place start quickly through the pack. By the halfway point he had already moved into the top ten. A few laps later he had climbed up to 6th place where he finished the race.

“I am really bummed about the crash off the start,” reported Musquin. “I felt really strong today so I was not happy that put me in the back of the pack. I am happy with how I rode and glad I was able to salvage some points.”

SAN DIEGO, Calif. – Red Bull KTM Factory rider Ryan Dungey earned his fourth victory of the season on Saturday at round six of the AMA 450 Supercross Championship. Dungey’s teammate, Marvin Musquin, finished seventh in the premier class as the series made its second and final stop of the season at San Diego’s Petco Park.

Both Dungey and Musquin were placed in the first heat of the 450 Class, with current points leader Dungey at the helm as the day’s fastest qualifier. It was Musquin who shot off the gate to capture the holeshot in heat one, while Dungey trailed inside the top five. Dungey quickly made his way into second behind Musquin and the teammates put on an exciting battle for the lead. Dungey ultimately made the pass on Musquin to capture the heat race win, followed by Cole Seely in second and Musquin in third.

In the 450 Class Main Event, the Red Bull KTM Factory riders raced side-by-side to the first corner, with Dungey edging out his teammate Musquin for the holeshot. While running in second, Musquin experienced a bobble that caused him to drop back to the sixth place position on the opening lap.

From there, Dungey maintained a steady lead over the competition to ultimately secure his fourth victory of the season.

“It’s nice to be back on top again this weekend,” Dungey stated. “I’m really happy with the way things went today. We made some set-up changes between practice, heat races and the main, which we feel were in the right direction. Definitely good momentum going into Dallas next weekend.”

Musquin consistently showed good speed amidst an experienced field of 450 Class riders, where he ultimately finished seventh place in his sixth career 450 Class start.

In the next three laps, Dungey would quickly work his way into 6th and then began chipping away on the top five.

At the halfway point Dungey had already made it through the pack and into podium position while Musquin had moved to 6th. Shortly after, Musquin tipped over and lost a couple positions. Dungey continued to push out front and was able to make a pass on Eli Tomac with a few laps remaining to take over 2nd place.

Dungey Claims Third Straight Win at Oakland Supercross

Dungey Claims Third Straight Win at Oakland Supercross
Musquin Earns First Career Podium

Oakland, CA – Red Bull KTM Factory rider Ryan Dungey took another commanding win to claim his third straight victory in a row at the fourth round of the AMA 450 Supercross Championship held at the O.co Coliseum while his teammate, Marvin Musquin, finished 3rd to claim his first podium finish of the year.

This race was moved to a delayed rain schedule due to inclement weather leading up to the race which meant removing one of the practice sessions. In the two sessions that took place, Dungey was able to put together some solid laps and turned the fastest time from the qualifying sessions.

Dungey and Musquin were placed in the second heat race. Dungey pulled the holeshot while Musquin was not far behind in 3rd position. Dungey quickly stretched his lead out front and went on to win the heat race by an impressive 9 seconds. Meanwhile, Musquin was able to move into 2nd place at the halfway point of the heat and went on to finish in that position to take a great gate spot in the main event.

When the gate dropped for the main event, it was Dungey that pulled the holeshot while Musquin was immediately behind him in 2nd place. Musquin battled Roczen for two laps before falling to 3rd on the fourth lap of the race. Out front, Dungey slowly pulled away from the group and had a 4 second lead by the halfway point of the race.

Musquin continued to ride a smooth race turning consistent laps to remain in podium position. At the end of the 20 lap main event, Dungey took his third victory of the season and his 25th career win. Musquin held on for 3rd place, earning his first career 450 Supercross class podium.

“It feels great to get another win,” stated Dungey on the podium. “Being out front early allows me to ride my own race and stay focused. I am really happy for my teammate Marvin tonight. This is a big step for him to get his first podium of his 450 career. We train really hard together and I’m happy for him and the team to have us both on the podium.”

Musquin remarked, “We did not expect for me to be on the podium already at the fourth round of the series. I am so excited to be up here and have the whole team to thank for this. I train with Ryan all week and it is great to be able to be up here with him.”

Anaheim, CA – Red Bull KTM Factory rider Ryan Dungey earned his second victory in a row at the third round of the AMA 450 Supercross Championship held at Angel Stadium to strengthen his points lead on the series.

Dungey had the third fastest lap time in the afternoon practice qualifying sessions to earn a great gate pick in his heat race. When the gate dropped for his heat, he was able to jump out front early, work his way into the lead and take the victory.

His teammate, Marvin Musquin, had a good jump off the gate in his heat race but was pushed out off the start and had to fight his way back. He was able to come from a last place start to finish 6th in the heat, but unfortunately, did not transfer straight to the main.

Musquin regrouped and lined up for his semi race. In this race, he got another good jump and this time held on to pull the holeshot. He lost the lead after a mistake in the whoop section. He remained in 2nd through the end of the race to earn a spot on the main event gate.

In the main event, it was Dungey who leaped off the line ahead of the field pulling a 2nd place start to fellow KTM rider, Davi Millsaps. Dungey quickly maneuvered around Millsaps and put his Red Bull KTM 450 SX-F Factory Edition motorcycle into the lead. Once out front, Dungey was able to pull a gap on the rest of the field and go on to clinch his second victory.

“I was really happy to get into the lead early,” remarked Dungey after the race. “I just wanted to get out front, ride my own race and pull away. It’s a lot easier when you can get out front and focus on your own rhythm. I’m really glad to get this win and hope to keep this momentum going next weekend.”

Meanwhile, Musquin was pushed out off the start once again, this time causing him to crash into the tuff blocks on the side of the track. When he recovered he was sitting in last position. He charged forward and quickly made up positions as he crept up near the top ten. In a twenty lap race, he was able to charge back to 9th when the checkered flag flew.

“I felt good today,” stated Musquin. “The track was difficult but I felt strong. Unfortunately, I just had some bad mistakes on the starts that cost me. I am happy to have worked my way into the top ten and will continue to improve from there.”

The final member of the Red Bull KTM Factory Team, Dean Wilson, suffered a crash during the afternoon practice sessions that caused him to sit out the race. Wilson is believed to have suffered a knee injury to the same knee he hurt the previous season. He is going to a doctor early next week for further review. More details on the extent of his injury will be given at that time.

Dungey Finishes 2nd at Monster Energy Cup

Dungey Finishes 2nd at Monster Energy Cup

Dungey
Dungey

Las Vegas, NV – Red Bull KTM Factory rider Ryan Dungey earned 2nd overall at the Monster Energy Cup Championship round after finishing with 2-5-2 scores from the three individual pro main events.

The Monster Energy Cup event is unique in that the riders race in three motos that combine for the overall win. In addition, the riders have to take a joker lane on one lap of their choosing during the main event which slows them down and allows for tighter racing.

In the first moto, Dungey earned a 4th place start. He moved into 3rd when a rider ahead of him crashed on lap two. He took the joker lane on the fifth lap and continued to ride a solid pace out front. He technically crossed the finish line in 3rd place but the lead ride of Jason Anderson forgot to do the joker lane which bumped Dungey up to 2nd place for that moto.

In the second moto, Dungey got a top five start. He was up to 3rd in the first couple corners but then got pushed back to 5th. Once in that spot, he rode consistent and remained in that position through the checkered flag.

In the third and final moto, Dungey had another great start. He was able to get up front early and run behind the lead rider. He didn’t let him escape too far out front and Dungey was able to secure another runner-up position. His 2-5-2 moto scores earned him the final step on the overall podium.

“I had a lot of fun out here today,” stated Dungey. “This event is always unique and exciting. I’m glad to finish on the podium and happy to go back home and continue Supercross training as we approach the new season.”
