Ryan Dungey has earned Racer x Rider of the Year honors for the second-straight year. You already know why: Dungey is the 2010 AMA Supercross and AMA Motocross Champion.
But do you know the story behind the man? On raceday, Dungey is typically reserved in his interactions with the media. But in this interview from our January issue, he opens up about his long term career goals, how losing a family member changed his life, how the '08 SX Lites supercross title still haunts him, and how things have changed with the fans, press and other riders now that he's on top. Most importantly, he explains how his whole life is centered around staying on the top now that he's gotten there.
Featuring exclusive photography from Dungey's home via ace shooter Cameron Baird, this is a must-read for any Ryan Dungey fan.
