Dungey to Miss Daytona Supercross
This just in! (I've always wanted to say that.) KTM has just announced that their star rider, Ryan Dungey, will be sitting out of this weelend's Daytona Supercross race. Why? Last weekend Dungey went down in one of his practice laps at his training facility in Florida leading up to the St. Louis Monster Energy AMA Supercross race. Though it didn't show during the main event in St. Louis as Dungey easily pulled in a second place win, the crash left him with a broken collar bone.
While the original diagnosis of Dungey's injury was a cracked collar bone before the St. Louis race, it ended up being a complete break requiring him to step down from this weekend's event to undergo surgery on it. He plans to recover a quickly as possible, however, missing this weekend or any of the other following races may take him out of the ring for the championship title and, though James Steward is still a good forty points behind him in third, his second place standing.
Everyone at BikeBandit.com wished Ryan Dungey a speedy and successful recovery and we hope to see him back in the running soon. As for all the other riders, we're looking forward to an exiting weekend at the Dayton International Speedway Supercross!
