Santa Barbara, CA- Not many riders earn an iconic nickname without doing something special on the bike. We have the G.O.A.T., Bubba, MC and Fro to name a few that need no introduction. Ryan ‘Ryno’ Hughes is one of those rare riders that have earned a nickname and he is coming back to the professional motocross circuit for the 2012 FMF Hangtown classic, and season opener this weekend in California.
Ryno is as fit as ever at 39 years of age do to his success of marketing and reinventing himself into the brands we now know as Ryno Power Supplements and Rynoland Training Facility where he trains and produces the best riders in the world.
The whole Rock River Yamaha/Moto Star crew is very pleased to be part of this big moment in our sport where we get to see one of our past heroes take the track again and do battle against the world’s best active riders. The whole team is behind Ryan and ready to cheer him on during his path toward success in the circuit again. Rock River Yamaha/Moto Star is putting a potent Yamaha YZF450 under him that is race ready and loaded with some of the best equipment in the business with the help of many sponsors. Everyone is thrilled to be a part of Ryan’s historic comeback and are fully behind him on his search for glory.
Come out and cheer Ryno on at the Hangtown National, Saturday May 19. The whole Rock River Powersports rig will be present at the National so stop by and give Ryan Hughes a visit!
