Flashback: The 2012 National Champions

One of the biggest stories of last year's offseason was Ryan Dungey, the 2010 champion of the 450 Class, taking a leap of faith to join Red Bull KTM. With a few of the heavy hitters sidelined, the 2012 season was set up to be a showdown between Dungey and James Stewart.

Everything changed at Thunder Valley though, and Dungey ripped off ten overall wins in a row to recapture the #1 plate. Relive the highs and lows of an incredible season for Dungey that included intense battles with Mike Alessi, a pit stop at Southwick, and the first Lucas Oil Pro Motocross title for KTM.

After being part of Pro Circuit Kawasaki's three-headed monster in 2011,  Blake Baggett had his chance to step into the spotlight this year. It  wasn't an easy season by any means, with the likes of Justin Barcia, Eli  Tomac, Ken Roczen and Marvin Musquin contending for wins week in and  week out. Still, Baggett pulled off an impressive feat, grabbing the red  plate at Hangtown and never letting go of it.
