KTM Motorsports has signed Supercross/Motocross racer Ryan Dungey to the Red Bull/KTM Factory Race Team for the 2012 and 2013 AMA Pro Supercross and Motocross Championship Series.
Dungey’s first official race with the Red Bull/KTM Factory Team will be the opening round of the AMA Pro Supercross Championship Series at Angel Stadium in Anaheim on Jan. 7, 2012, where he will race aboard the KTM 450 SX-F in the premier Supercross class.
“I am really happy to have Ryan Dungey join our team. He and I have worked together for several years so we know each other well. Our past should help us get the best out of each other and put us in position to be legit championship contenders in the big bike class,” commented Red Bull/KTM team manager Roger DeCoster. “Everyone at the factory and here on the U.S. side is very excited to start working with Ryan and see where the future will take us.”
Dungey, a 21-year-old Minnesota native, in 2010 became the first rider in history to win both the AMA Supercross and AMA Pro Motocross Championship in his rookie year.
