WHAT YOU’RE MISSING IF YOU HAVEN’T SEEN THE APRIL 2012 ISSUE OF MXA

Ryan Dungey gets to be the cover boy of the April 2012 issue of MXA (and he was on the cover of the January 2012 issue also). In a season that has seen Supercross contenders fall by the wayside, Dungey’s fast, but conservative, approach just might be the hot ticket by the end of the series.

We don’t just run the numbers, we explain them also. …

We called Cole to get his perspective on how he did it. MXA: Can you give u…

They have all been fast, but who has been fast the most often? The numbers don’t lie, so here is a breakdown of the top riders’ finishes and their chances at wearing the crown after it’s all over. They have completed 9 out of 12 races in the series, but for the 450 Championship, only individual moto finishes count. There have been 18 motos, that for all practi…
