KTM North America, Inc. is pleased to congratulate Red Bull KTM Factory Racing’s Ryan Dungey on being named Best Action Sports Male Athlete for the second-consecutive year at the 2016 ESPY Awards, which took place on Wednesday evening in Los Angeles.
Dungey’s back-to-back accolade comes only one week after the announcement of his participation in ESPN The Magazine’s “Body Issue,” which earned the back-to-back Supercross World Champion additional world-wide media attention.
In 2015, Dungey became the first motocross/supercross racer to win an ESPY Award and the Minnesota native was humbled to once again be nominated in 2016. Dungey won the 2016 Best Action Sports Male Athlete award, which is based on fan voting, over freestyle skier Gus Kenworthy, skateboarders Nyjah Huston and Pedro Barros and snowboarder Mark McMorris.
Following his second-consecutive 450 Supercross World Championship in April, Dungey sustained a back injury at Round 3 of the AMA Pro Motocross Championship where he is currently sidelined in order to heal the injury.
