2015 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross and Supercross Champion Ryan Dungey to Appear on ESPNs SportsCenter
MORGANTOWN, W. Va. (September 15, 2015) - After one of the most successful seasons in the history of motocross, Red Bull KTM rider Ryan Dungey will be recognized for his accomplishments with a special appearance on ESPN''s iconic daily sports news program SportsCenter, filmed in Bristol, Connecticut.
For the second time in his career Dungey won both the Monster Energy Supercross and Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship titles in the same season in 2015, clinching both before the completion of each respective championship. As a result of his success, Dungey was nominated for an ESPN ESPY Award for Best Male Action Sports Athlete, ultimately winning the fan-voted award and notching a significant mainstream milestone not only for himself, but for the sport as a whole.
With arguably the most memorable season of his career complete, Dungey will now have the opportunity of a lifetime to visit the headquarters of "The Worldwide Leader in Sports" and be a part of its flagship program.
