Ryan Dungey's Championship-winning 2012 Season

Ryan Dungey turned in an amazing outdoor season, collecting 10 straight overall race wins to earn his second AMA Motocross 450 Championship title. Dungey and his Red Bull KTM teammates Ken Roczen and Marvin Musquin helped make the Austrian manufacturer's first run at the outdoor series an impressive one, and it will surely prove to be just the start of even bigger things to come. Enjoy the photos below, pulled from this summer's Nationals, and help us celebrate Ryan's latest title.
