Ryan Dungey’s contract with KTM has been extended through the 2017 Supercross season. KTM is clearly pleased with the work Dungey has done; the 25-year-old Minnesotan was offered the extension prior to locking up this year’s 450SX title–a first for KTM.
“I have never had a manufacturer work so closely with the racing team to make sure we have the best bike each year,” Dungey said. “The proof of how great the bike has become is written in the race results. I couldn’t ask for a better team and manufacturer to work for.”
Team manager Roger De Coster also commented: “I’m extrememly happy that Ryan has chosen to commit another two years to the Red Bull KTM team. I have worked with Ryan for many years and can honestly say he’s in the best shape of his career. The level of commitment he has shown to his training program, our race team, and toward the development of the KTM 450 SX-F race bike has made him a better racer.”
