With an impressive showing at Glen Helen Raceway on the opening weekend of the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship season, Ryan Dungey sits atop the early ratings. After finishing third in the first 450cc moto, Dungey made a thrilling pass on Ken Roczen just a few turns from the finish in moto two, helping to secure the overall win over a stacked field.
Count It! Airbrake MX Tallies First-Ever Victory With Eli Tomac 250 Supercross Triumph, Revolution Begins
The revolution has begun. The undisputedly bleeding-edge Airbrake MX goggle made its public debut as Oakley Team Star, Eli Tomac, claimed a resounding Supercross 250 victory at Anaheim 1 on Saturday. Finally gracing the sport after weeks of mysterious buzz and speculation in the industry, the new eyewear piece effectively began a new era in motocross goggle design – pushing the envelope in unmatched, patented optic technology, materials and overall design.
It was full on redemption for Ryan Dungey. After surrendering his AMA Pro Motocross title last season, Oakley’s star emphatically reclaimed glory and his second Championship following the ripper’s eighth straight dominating victory at Unadilla. The KTM Factory rider, tallying the brand’s first ever 450 title, swept the Motos to take his 22nd overall victory in the class. “It was a pretty amazing day,” Ryan said, rocking his Oakley Signature Series MX Goggles. “To be honest, I knew we could wrap up today, but my focus was putting on a solid performance and moving forward. Mike (Alessi) has been riding well, but unfortunately there was a DNF. In the second moto, I just wanted to put in a solid ride and wrap up this championship.”
