The Dream
6. The Dream
December 17, 2012
Ryan Dungey took the 450-class by storm this year, but the road to getting there was not an easy one. The path paved by many of Motocross's historical figures like Ricky Carmichael began at Loretta's Lynn's racetrack where the often won multiple amateur championships. Not the fastest rider of his age, but perhaps more determined than the rest, Ryan Dungey took a different path. With only one Loretta Lynn Championship under his belt, Ryan spent a year knocking persistently at Roger Decoster's door until he was given an opportunity to ride alongside Ricky Carmichael on Suzuki's practice racetrack. After watching Dungey turn sharp corners on the track, Roger Decoster took him under his wing and signed him to Suzuki, where they would go on to win four Championships under the guidance of Decoster and mechanic Ian Harrison. But in 2010, after winning the Outdoor Championship, Decoster informed Dungey that he would be moving from Factory Suzuki to KTM. KTM was one of the few companies expanding their race budget and Decoster spent much of 2011 perfecting their equipment in the hopes of attracting Dungey. And in 2012, Ryan Dungey followed his mentor to KTM, a move that was risky given that KTM had never won a championship. Backed by the support of this family and armed with immense determination, Ryan Dungey and the KTM Team set out to prove that with the right people and strong company backing, championships can be won despite all odds. Winning, however, only makes Ryan more aware of how much work it takes to stay on top, and his successes push him to work harder in order to be greater. Urged by his parents to remain focused amidst the chaos of winning, and inspired by his grandmother to live life to its fullest, Ryan organizes a 60-mile bike ride near his hometown to support St. Jude's Children's Hospital to help kids fighting a cancer-the same disease that took his grandmother away from him too soon.

In this adrenaline rush of an episode, the 250-class title hunt of 2012 was a head-to-head battle between Eli Tomac, Blake Baggett, Dean Wilson, Justin Barcia, Marvin Musquin, and Ken Roczen. The work they put in during the week all converge come race day where, regardless of circumstance, they all find themselves on the same starting line. Having only won three Moto's between 2010 and 2011, Justin Barcia invested a lot of his own money in building a track in Florida where he could practice. This proved to be fruitful, landing Barcia on the podium enough times to put him within 14 points of Baggett at the second to last race of the year in Steel City. New to the American Pro Series, Ken Roczen is this year's biggest question mark. Holding the record as the youngest ever GP winner, many believed that Ken would follow in the footsteps of the some of the greatest riders in Europe. But the American Outdoor series presents challenges unlike anything found abroad. Marvin Musquin, a fellow European transplant is in his second year racing in the United States and can attest to the difficulties of riding as an unknown in a new country with little support. The intense heat and grueling outdoor tracks push the limits of physical fitness, and if the Europeans are going to dominate the American market they will have to adapt quickly or face going home disappointed. Even for those raised in the United States, battling heat exhaustion on the tracks proves to be challenging. But no team is better equipped to breed champions than Mitch Payton's Pro Circuit Team, which has won the number plate every year for the past eight years. With the pressure of the past weighing on him, Blake Baggett will fight to the bitter end to clench the title for Pro Circuit once again and take home the Championship.
