    Ryan Dungey loves RedBud MX. Oakley’s Minnesota-raised Motocross Star threw down, big time, at his favorite track in the AMA Motocross series, sweeping the 450 class motos for his fourth straight victory on the season. The triumph pushed his lead in the Championship standings to a massive 72 points ahead of Mike Alessi. “Having James (“Bubba” Stewart) back this week was good to add another challenge, and it’s good for the sport,” said Ryan, rocking his Signature Series Oakley MX Goggles. “We made some more changes to the bike coming into (today) and I think we’ve made even more progress. My starts were good and I knew getting out front would make life easier, having a whole track to work with. It’s (too) early to think points, but you’ve got to be smart. With James back, you knew he’d be there, so I didn’t want to downplay him. I just wanted to get a good start and see how things played out.”

After grabbing the Holeshot with authority, he gapped the competition and powered his way to the win unchallenged. “To come back from to the silver to the gold is great,” he said, rocking his Oakley MX Goggles. “That was my goal this year. All day long I was riding good and I had good times, and I knew if I got a good start I help me win the gold.”
