|Ryan Dungey picked up his first win of the season on June 2 at Thunder Valley in Lakewood, Colo., after two consecutive second-place finishes.|
Red Bull KTM's Ryan Dungey swept the motos Saturday to win the 450 Class for the first time on the AMA Pro Motocross season at Thunder Valley MX Park in Lakewood, Colo.
Dungey had finished second behind Team Yoshimura Suzuki's James Stewart in each of the first two rounds of the season and won at Thunder Valley for the third consecutive year.
Stewart crashed in the opening moto and suffered a wrist injury, which caused him to sit out the second moto and finish with no points. Dungey took over first place overall with 136 points, followed by Jake Weimer with 101 and Stewart with 100. Weimer finished second on Saturday."I hate to win like that," Dungey told MX Sports Pro Racing afterward. "James and I have pushed each other to new levels and although he won the first four motos [this season], it's been good. Hopefully he heals up and comes back [next week at High Point Raceway in Mount Morris, Pa.]. My game plan is always the same, to take it one race at a time. You can't focus on the end result and we saw that today. I just do my own thing, put my best foot forward, and never underestimate anyone."
