AMA NATIONALS / SUPERCROSS AMA NATIONALS / SUPERCROSS VICTORY, SQUARED Ryan Dungey has won everything there is to win on US soil this year, setting yet another superb milestone for himself and the Red Bull KTM Factory Racing Team. The 25-year-old American from Tallahassee was outright winner of both the Supercross World Championship and the US Outdoor National, adding two more titles to his already impressive list. Dungey is currently threetimes 450MX champion, three-times winner of the Chamberlain Trophy (Motocross of Nations) and twotimes Supercross World Champion (450SX) as well as chalking up 67 wins in the AMA series (Motocross and Supercross). In addition to his immense speed, Dungey demonstrated his incredible consistency once again this season. Even on his not-so-good days he almost always finished on the podium, laying the foundations for his latest triumphs. © Photos: S. Cudby KTM Images A NEAR-PERFECT SEASON © Photos: S. Cudby KTM Images Marvin Musquin is able to look back over an almost perfect 2015 season. France’s MX2 world champion of 2009 and 2010 was the outright winner of the Supercross title early in the year in the SX Lites category and once again gave the competition in the USA an excellent run for their money. It was in the outdoor season that he suffered the only slight blemish to an otherwise virtually perfect season result. He had to withdraw with a technical problem in the last race, losing out on the title that had seemed so clearly within his grasp. The 25-year-old did put in a superb performance at the Motocross of Nations, however. Not even nominated the previous year, this exceptionally talented rider demonstrated his skill to the full in front of a home crowd with two great races, laying the foundation for a title that was successfully defended by Team France. HEADING UPWARDS JUSTIN HILL Justin Hill put in a worthy performance in his first season with the Red Bull KTM Factory Racing Team. He finished on the podium twice in the West Coast Supercross Championships, ultimately ranking fourth overall but only missing the top three by a single point. In the Outdoor Nationals, however, injury prevented the 20-year-old from achieving his season goals. Nevertheless, he certainly put in an impressive demonstration of his potential, finishing an excellent second in the first round at the second event in Glen Helen. © Photos: S. Cudby KTM Images 6

AMA NATIONALS / SUPERCROSS BRITISH TALENT Dean Wilson started the 2015 Supercross season with great expectations. Wilson was born in Scotland, grew up in Canada and has lived in the USA for several years. Well known as an extrovert funster and with a huge community of fans on social media, the 23-year-old has already won one AMA championship title. For the new season, Wilson picked one of the most coveted places in the paddock – alongside Ryan Dungey on the Red Bull KTM Factory Racing Team. The newcomer showed what he is capable of even in his first races of the Supercross season, impressively demonstrating his potential and finishing among the top ten in eighth position in only the third race. A setback followed soon after, however. He fell during training and damaged several knee ligaments, forcing him to undergo surgery with a protracted rehabilitation phase. The Scot was not able to return to racing until the last three events of the US Nationals. Wilson then managed to see further action in the Grand Prix season finale at Glen Helen in the USA and also at the Motocross of Nations, where he represented Great Britain along with Shaun Simpson.

The time finally came in October, when Stewart joined defending champions Red Bull Straight Rhythm. The multiple Outdoor and Supercross championship winner showed that he had not forgotten a thing during his long competitive break, finishing by collecting his second triumph in succession. Unfortunately, however, this impressive comeback was followed one week later by another setback for the Yoshimura-Suzuki rider: the 29-year-old suffered a hand injury during training at the Monster Energy Cup in Las Vegas and was forced to attend the prestigious event merely as a spectator. BLAKE BAGGETT A GREAT SHOWING EVEN WITH THE BIG BOYS The season got off to an eventful start for Blake Baggett: the 2012 AMA 250 Outdoor Championship winner switched both motorcycle make and class when he moved up to the big boys in the 450 cc category. His new colleague in Team Yoshimura-Suzuki was James Stewart. The 23-year-old has enthralled fans for years with his spectacular jumps and was an ever-present candidate for podium finishes and victories in the 250 cc class in the USA. In his first year on a 450 cc bike, he consistently put in a sound performance, even clinching his first podium position in his rookie season. He went on to achieve an outstanding top 5 position both in the Supercross (championship ranking fifth) and in the Outdoor Nationals (championship ranking fourth). © Photos: Jake Klingensmith 7
