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.

Dungey, with back to back championships in the 2015 season, charged full steam ahead into the 2016 Supercross season energized with confidence. Ryan dominated the 2016 Supercross series winning 9 rounds that year. The 2016 Pro Motocross Championship opening round started off well for Ryan at Hangtown where he posted a 2nd place finish over-all. The very next round at Glen Helen, Ryan took home the victory and celebrated his 39th over-all win in the Motocross 450 Class. Round three in Colorado, Ryan finished with a 2-4 moto tally placing second over-all on the day. Ryan, at that race suffered a crash during the 2nd moto ending his chances of repeating his Championship in the 2016 Pro Motocross Championship. Even though the season was over, Ryan received top honors at the 2016 ESPY Award for Best Male Action Sports Athlete. 

In 2017, Dungey fought hard all season against Eli Tomac. With three wins to Tomac's nine, Dungey proved that weekly consistent performances in the top of the field can take the title. Ryan Dungey would take the win at the season finale by 5 points. After securing this fourth 450SX Supercross title, Ryan Dungey retired from professional motocross racing.
