KTM Motorsports recently announced that Supercross/Motocross racer Ryan Dungey will ride with 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 on January 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,” said 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 says he is excited with the move to KTM and working under the guidance of Roger DeCoster, “I’m looking forward to riding for the new Red Bull/KTM team and working again with Roger. I am excited to start something new and am ready for the challenge. I like the way that KTM has backed Roger since he made the switch last year and I appreciate KTM’s goal of working hard to develop their race team to earn championships. I am making this switch to win races and work toward getting that championship for KTM.”
