Lmfao...I'm on board Newmann. I did the same. C'mon man....pass him already. I never thought he couldn't....but he was just too Damn polite to embarrass another rider by smoking him. Dungey is just so straight....you don't see that sort of integrity very often. If you've ever met him face to face...it's all in his eyes. He is a genuinely good man.

Looking forward to meeting him at the MXoN Experience. So many good choices to bid on but I kept coming back to the Dunge

I don't know. Perhaps it might affect Dungey less than it would James or RV at this point. However, it was never in RD to just settle for a championship even when he had no choice in the matter. He's a competitor at heart. Nice seeing him taking some laps on the smoker.

Ian Harrison is largely rumored to be the heir apparent. I am not sure who the right hand man is. But I believe dungey was/is tired of the travel. He seems to miss it a bit now just based on what little we get from him but maintaining sponsors like he is doing can’t last for long. I’d love to see him make a comeback but it would be a bummer to see something bad happen to him in a comeback.

Long term, it would be cool to see dungey be harrisons continuity plan.

I thought the exact same thing.

"Just getting ready for the new....2019....season...."

As a rider, coach or team manager/co-manager, something is on the cards for next year in SX.

BTW, I am not a Dungey fan at all. But I see what I see.

RC has been retired for 10+ years and he's still got Fox, Monster & Suzuki support.

We showed up to a signing late(was an hour and half drive after work) so my 3 year old could get her wheaties box signed by Dungey. We stood in line for a while and with about 10 people left or so the team packed up, kids swarming him as he is walking off. Well, I hopped the rope with my daughter, made our way through(not cut in line through a bunch of people) and got his attention. I was expecting the guy to keep walking or be bothered, but instead he turns around and says hi, signs it for her, and throws in a little small talk and keeps signing stuff for other kids on his way out. I think he may have got them all signed actually. We will never forget that, no matter how little it may be to some. To us that means something. It's going to be sweet to see him race at straight rhythm this year on a smoker wink

You think dungey could jump in next national and podium? I think he could.

Roger has a great team around him with Ian, Ryan M, and Steph (not in the video).

Dungey isn't looking for work and certainly isn't looking for the commitment of having to be everywhere all the time.

He just got a new wakeboard boat...give the man some time to learn how to surf. haha

For some reason the little bit of riding leaves me more impressed with Dungey. He clearly doesnt have what you could call 'natural talent', like he aint making no Josh Hill or Josh Hansen Instabangers. Those guys are naturally gifted with a flowing effortless style, Dungey just put in the work to get fit, master the fundamentals and stay consistently fast. It really shows how important hard work is over flash.

Ryan is a great athlete and a great person overall. He is a good asset to our sport and brings a level of professionalism that is unseen in today's world.

That said, I think he accomplished what he wanted. I think his move to retire was the right move. He got out healthy and left the door open for a few guys to step up.

Right now we need someone with a bit more flare. I'm not saying that we need someone with flare to grow the sport...I think we need that to even maintain what we have. Personality or at least some kind of narrative is what will keep people interested.

Dungey doesn’t have natural talent but Roger D picked him out of the B Class as a basically unknown rider..... gotcha

It seems all people care about these days is who can throw the best oppo for the gram. Jump for show, corner for dough. Roger said he’d never seen corner speed like Ryan’s

Think Jeff Stanton, not David Bailey or JMB. Dungey had to work his ass off for it and often times won championships without winning races. He knew how to put a race together together and while it may not have been the prettiest or smoothest, he wrapped up a hell of a career.

How many championships did Dungey win? How many did Stanton win?

I stand corrected. I've never seen a Redbull helmet that didn't belong to a sponsored athlete.

Not sure where you’re going with this one newmann. Every champion has had to work his ass off for the win, regardless of whether it looked like it or not. And to my knowledge, Dungey has far more championships than Stanton

Roger gets way to much credit for Dungey. Cole Gress found him and brought him to the table.

Far more?

Of course Vital doesn't seem to think small bore championships count. I see 6 for Stanton and 7 big bike for Dungey.

https://vault.racerxonline.com/rider/ryan-dungey/points

And of course they all had to work their ass off for it. Well except maybe for Bayle ...lol. He thought carving his initials in the hillside was training.laughing
