While Red Bull KTM's Ryan Dungey continues to amass one of the most impressive seasons in the history of Monster Energy AMA Supercross, he now has company in RCH Soaring Eagle/Jimmy Johns/Suzuki Factory Racing's Ken Roczen.
As the season prepares for its eighth race of the 2016 championship from Atlanta's Georgia Dome this Saturday, February 27, these longtime rivals and former teammates are ready to continue their captivating battle at the front of the 450SX Class.
For the Aussie fans, Chad Reed will be the sole Australian rider in action this weekend as Hayden Mellross takes a well earned break along with the remaining West coast 250 class riders as they hit their mid season break.
