Roger DeCoster: ‘This win feels so incredible’

Posted:

Red Bull/KTM Factory Team Manager Roger DeCoster is a happy man after his rider Ryan Dungey notched up KTM's first ever Supercross class win at round 2 of the Monster Energy AMA Supercross Championship on Saturday night at Phoenix.

Dungey, third in Round 1 now tops the points table and starts with the red plate in Round 3.

"It is not just our team in the US but the whole crew in Austria at our factory that have helped us get here," DeCoster said. "It's amazing to get a podium in only our second race of the season. It feels really good that we were able to deliver for the people that backed us. We have proved ourselves with a win and intend to keep progressing."

Not only did Dungey take the win, he nailed the holeshot and led every lap of the twenty lap main event. His first career win on his KTM 450 machine also marks the first ever for the KTM brand in the SX class. Dungey qualified third fastest from practice and earned a fourth place finish in his heat to transfer to the main. Once he lined up on that gate, everything went his way.

"! was definitely motivated by my teammate tonight," Dungey said on the podium. "I saw Marvin (Musquin) got second in the Lites main and knew I had to step up my game to match him and do well for our team. This win feels so incredible. The whole crew at KTM has been behind me 100% since I joined them in October and it is amazing to earn this win together!"

The next round of the series is in Los Angeles, CA on January 21, 2012.
