2016 AMA Supercross FIM World Champion

DUNGEY DOUBLES IN SUPERCROSS

Ryan Dungey (KTM) defended the number 1 plate in the AMA Supercross FIM World Championship with a career-best nine wins and a record-breaking podium streak along the way. After ending his title-winning 2015 season with sixteen straight podiums, Dungey picked up where he left off at the first round of 2016, taking second place behind surprise package Jason Anderson (Husqvarna), who maintained the Anaheim tradition of producing rookie winners. A run of three-straight wins in the next three rounds put Dungey firmly in control of the championship, with Ken Roczen (Suzuki) emerging as his closest rival as the year progressed.

By round sixteen in East Rutherford, Dungey had taken a further five wins and extended his podium streak to thirty-one, putting himself within touching distance of the championship. Ironically it was his first non-podium finish of the season that secured the title, fourth place in a race won by Roczen enough to make Dungey just the sixth triple-champion in AMA Supercross history. Dungey ended his campaign back on the top step of the podium at the final round in Las Vegas, where Anderson completed a breakout season with second place and an impressive third in the championship behind Roczen.
