weekend, the last Supercross battles took place in Las Vegas. Riders
using Akrapovič exhaust systems won two thirds and one second place
The outcome after seventeen rounds of the exciting American
Supercross series could have been even better if one of the best
contenders for the championship title, Ryan Dungey, hadn’t been forced
to miss five races due to a collarbone injury. But risk is part of the
game in motorsport and so we can be quite happy with the final outcome.
Dungey won the last two races in Salt Lake City and Las Vegas, and
proved that he can reach for the top and that he’s one-hundred-percent
ready for the Outdoor Motocross season. He achieved a fifteen-point lead
over his closest pursuer in the final race.
After the tough season, this rider using an Akrapovič exhaust
system on his KTM 450 SX-F said: “It feels great to end the season with
two wins. This was a tough season for me. I’m glad to end it on a
positive note. I’m so happy to be a part of the Red Bull / KTM Team and
am grateful for all their support. We’re turning our focus to outdoors
now with the goal of winning the championship.”
The other two members of the Red Bull KTM Factory team also ended
the season among the best three: in the Supercross Lites East class, Ken
Roczen finished the Vegas race in second and secured the same position
in the overall standings; in the Supercross Lites West class, Marvin
Musquin’s sixth place was enough for him to win third place overall.
Akrapovič would like to congratulate all three riders and wish them the best possible results in the AMA Motorcross series too!!
