I would submit that if you took an average of every lap of every moto dungey has entered as a pro, he is the fastest rider ever. You would need to include a base time for laps in in moto's where riders DNF or DNS. (maybe give them the slowest time of the day for those laps.) I would think he has the highest moto completion percentage and did that while running with the elite times of the classes he entered. He doesn't have the 'fastest lap' but I bet he has the fastest motos. Thoughts

You are talking about "win percentage"- and without even looking up stats, there's no way Dungey has a higher win percentage than RC.

As far as pure speed goes, I would say Magoo or Stew. Crashes kill their avg lap times though. JMO.

Perhaps one of the most consistent riders ever. The most injury free rider ever maybe.

He's certainly one of the fastest. I don't think he is the fastest ever though. Certainly in the group...

Most consistently fast, yes. Fastest? Not even close.

You do realize that whoever has the fastest moto time wins the race? Therefore, whoever has the most wins would have the fastest moto times... and what happens when you divide the moto time by the number of laps?!?! Holy hell, average lap times!!

how do you you figure "Not even close"? RC, RV, JS, RD, KR, ET. The fastest riders in the past 15 years. They all have races where they've won by 45 seconds or more. They've all won titles and crushed their competition at respective times.

JS7 is THE fastest guy ever to twist the throttle. Only talking sheer speed and nothing else.

Fastest motos... Doesn't everyone complete a moto in 30 +2? First place finishes faster than second. Second faster than 3rd etc..

I think you need to dumb down this post as it is above the comprehensive abilities of 90% of vitards! Blink

Unknown.

I do know I would not bet against Ryan Dungey in SX or MX 2016 considering where he is at in his career which from my perspective is peaking.

after reading the replies, i agree. lol.

I think in averages, dungey would very well be a contender for what the OP is suggesting. If he keeps racing and putting down wins, he very well be undisputed.

Then why did RC constantly beat him ?

Fixed it for you. ET3 is THE fastest guy ever to twist the throttle in a single moto. Only talking sheer speed and nothing else.

Think Tomac proved who was fastest, as far as "Ever"? I would put Magoo, Johnson, Gary Jones, Bob Hannah, Danny Laporte and Ron Lechien right there with Tomac. (Couple I missed for sure)
Now a common denominator with those fastest guys is? you got it...always banged up.

Now most consistent? Ya put Dunge right up there but I rather see guys race WFO than cruising and if you take that "Poll" as another thread stated. I bet most fans would like to see riders "Like" Tomac, Chandler, Johnson going for it every race than the humdrum it turned into after Tomac got hurt.

Dungey rode his ass off trying to stay with Tomac those first races, that's the kind of racing that will bring the fans out in droves and will build the sport. Nothing wrong with the way RD raced, just not what the fans come to enjoy.

Have to admit that those first four Nationals were some killer entertainment for those that live Moto.

RC no matter how you compare it. Any other rider would need a second career to match what RC did.

Someone's a Tomac fanboyWhistling Get back to me when ET actually finishes a full season, and wins a 450 title of any kind. THAT is what they race for. That is what is impressive, not crazy balls over the head fast just to crash out and not to be seen again for 8 months...that's lame. To the OP.....RC by a mile...just like ^^SCR^^ just wrote.

I've seen RC, DV, Matiasevich, Stephenson and RJ all call JS7 the fastest ever.
I would add Tomac, RC, Magoo and RV to the fastest list also.

Dungey is one of the most consistent I've ever seen, which is equally as impressive.

Opinions in these threads are almost always steered by which riders people like or don't like.

The fastest rider doesn't always win. Shit happens.

RC was obviously the better racer.
