Great finish to the #Supercross season for Red Bull @KTM


The Red Bull KTK US Supercross and SX Lites team wound up a great season at the Las Vegas Supercross Finale at Sam Boyd Stadium with a race win by Ryan Dungey and all three factory riders on the end of season podiums for their respective classes.

Dungey’s win in Las Vegas was his fourth for the season and despite having missed five races he finished overall third to underline he is fully recovered from his broken collarbone and 100% ready for the outdoors competition. The team’s two ‘rookies’ Ken Roczen and Marvin Musquin finished their seasons with Ken second overall in the SX Lites East Coast division and Marvin Musquin third overall in the West Coast competition.

Dungey may have had a rough start to his heat in Vegas but he went on to finish second. Then in the main event, he was second at the start behind Mike Alessi, slipped past him into the lead in the third corner and never looked back. Once Dungey put his KTM 450 up front he had pulled out to over a 10 second lead by the halfway point and at one point had a 15 second lead on the field. Dungey enjoyed the final lap of the race celebrating with some whips and eventually crossed the finish line to take his fourth win of the season.

“It feels great to end the season with two wins,” remarked Dungey. “This was a tough season for me. I am glad to end it on a positive note. I am so happy to be a part of the Red Bull/KTM Team and am grateful for all their support. We are turning our focus to outdoors now with a goal of winning the championship.”

Dungey will now return to California where he will train for outdoors over the next two weeks before heading to Sacramento, CA for the opening round of the AMA Motocross Series on May 19, 2012.

SX Lites
The Red Bull/KTM Team of Ken Roczen and Marvin Musquin put together two impressive rides to finish fourth and fifth respectively in the traditional East vs. West Supercross Lites Shootout held at Sam Boyd Stadium after first racing the final round of their respective competitions facing off in a 15 lap main. 

Roczen was up first in the East Lites Supercross class, was fourth at the start and quickly moved into second by the end of the first lap, a position that he carried all the way to the flag. His finish also secured him second in the overall point standings. Musquin was up next in the West Lites Supercross main and held on to fourth place for the for the first three laps. But still troubled by a hand injury from the weekend before, he dropped to sixth and held the position through to the end of the race. Musquin picked up enough points to secure his third overall for the season.

Both riders had a small amount of time to recover and then they were back out on the track to tackle the East vs. West Shootout. Musquin got a decent jump off the start and was fifth around the first corner while Roczen was back in ninth. Roczen showed his speed in the first few laps and moved his KTM 250 up to fourth place. He and the top three then engaged in a great, crowd-pleasing battle for the lead position. Roczen was able to hold the fourth place position throughout the remaining laps despite heavy pressure from his teammate at the end of the race. At the line Roczen and Musquin were 4-5.

Both Roczen and Musquin will now spend the next two weeks testing for outdoors before the series opener of the AMA Motocross Series.
