Ryan Dungey Foundation Announces First Event Sep. 18

Opportunity Awaits, a ride day for everyone, will take place on Saturday, September 18, from Southern California’s Fox Raceway.

Following its recent introduction, the Ryan Dungey Foundation has announced plans for its first fundraising event. Opportunity Awaits, a ride day for everyone, will take place on Saturday, September 18, from Southern California’s Fox Raceway.

“The motocross community, and two wheels in general, provided me with the life I enjoy today. Without the support of those who believed in my abilities I could have never achieved the success I had in my career,” explained Dungey. “It’s important for me to invest back into the industry that gave me so much, with the hope that we can get more kids on two wheels. Opportunity Awaits will provide an avenue to do just that, as we encourage any and everyone, especially kids who have never swung a leg over a bike, to come out and experience the joy of riding in a safe, controlled environment.”

Opportunity Awaits will be hosted with the support and partnership of several of the two-wheel industry’s most recognizable and influential brands — Fox RacingKTM North America, Inc.STACYC Stability Cycle, and Strider Bikes.

For the newcomers and the youngest guests in attendance, both STACYC and Strider will provide access to their introductory balance bikes on tracks specifically designed for these innovative and groundbreaking products that have helped make the world of two wheels more accessible than ever before.

Additionally, KTM will include a collection of its entry level motorcycle models geared towards the youth rider on a track fitting for their performance. Experienced riders and adults with their own motorcycles will have access to Fox Raceway’s main motocross track.

All attendees, regardless of ability, will have the chance to engage with Ryan, ride on the track alongside the famed No. 5, and take advantage of the presence from each event supporter, including the purchase of exclusive Ryan Dungey Foundation apparel from Fox Racing.

“Opportunity Awaits is the culmination of a shared passion amongst each and every one of us in the motocross and greater two-wheeled community,” added Dungey. “It serves as a unique way to celebrate the way riding makes us feel, while also providing an environment that allows us to share that passion with those who have yet to discover it. Hopefully it can help foster a new generation of riders and ensure our industry can continue to grow for years to come.”

Registration to get involved in this special event is now open.
