Austrian manufacturer must remain focused and keep progressing following Dungey's win.
Red Bull KTM team manager Roger DeCoster says that the Austrian manufacturer must remain focused and keep progressing following Ryan Dungey’s breakthrough American Supercross win at Phoenix.
Dungey raced to KTM’s first ever victory in the premier class of AMA Supercross on Saturday night in Arizona, which came just one week after the 2010 series champion scored KTM’s first podium at Anaheim 1.
But despite the success with the ‘Factory Edition’ 450 SX-F in the opening AMA rounds, DeCoster admits the aim now is to continue the progression.
“It is not just our team in the U.S, 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.”
DeCoster was pivotal in signing Dungey to KTM, joining the team last year before convincing Dungey to follow him over from Suzuki for the 2012 season.
