ESPN announced today the nineteen athletes that will be featured in ESPN The Magazine's annual Body Issue.
Ten men and nine women will appear in the issue. The list will feature Dwyane Wade of the NBA’s Miami Heat, Super Bowl MVP Von Miller of the Denver Broncos, UFC fighter Conor McGregror and Red Bull KTM’s Ryan Dungey, among others.
That’s correct, Ryan Dungey will appear in the 2016 ESPN The Magazine Body Issue, which will be available online July 6, and on newsstand July 8.
This isn’t the first time Dungey has appeared on ESPN platforms. In 2015, he was featured on ESPN’s flagship program SportsCenter and also a SportsCenter Special segment film with anchor Lindsay Czarniak.
Last year, Dungey also became the first motocross/supercross racer to win an ESPY for Best Action Sports Male Athlete. Dungey won the award over X Games SnoCross gold medalist Tucker Hibbert, skateboarder Nyjah Huston, snowboarder Mark McMorris and freestyle motocross rider Josh Sheehan.
Dungey is currently recovering from a cracked C6 vertebrae sustained in the second moto at Round 3 of Lucas Oil Pro Motocross from Thunder Valley. Since moving to the 450 Class in 2010, Dungey has missed just five races, which came during the 2012 Monster Energy Supercross season when Dungey sustained a broken collarbone.
When Dungey missed the High Point National last weekend it ended a 75-race start streak in 450MX, and a whopping 99-race start streak in the Nationals between two classes, dating back to the start of the 2008 season.
Earlier this year, Dungey clinched his second straight, and third overall, 450 Monster Energy Supercross Championship.
