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.”
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.”
