IMG signs motocross racer Ryan Dungey for exclusive representation

MUMBAI: IMG Worldwide, the global sports, fashion and media company, has signed motocross racer Ryan Dungey for exclusive worldwide management, sponsorship, licensing and marketing representation.

Dungey, 21 is one of the youngest and most successful professional motocross racers in history. By the age of 20, he had already captured every title in the sport.

Since his arrival, Dungey has dominated the sport with a career total of 47 wins—12 in Supercross Lites, eight in Supercross, seven in Motocross 250 Class and 10 in Motocross 450 Class —on the AMA Pro Racing circuit.

Dungey began competing professionally in 2006 and quickly achieved success, winning 18 total races in both AMA Supercross and the AMA Pro Motocross Championships his first three years as a professional.

IMG VP of action sports Mark Ervin said, “We are very pleased to welcome Ryan to the IMG family. He is an exceptionally talented and driven athlete. We are looking forward to working with him to expand his brand beyond his iconic status in motocross and leverage his appeal on a broader scale.”

With the completion of an exceptional 2010 season, Dungey now holds the distinction of being the only rookie in the history of the sport to win both the Supercross and motocross titles in the premier division.

Dungey said, “I’m really excited to be working with IMG. Their history of representing great athletes and overall knowledge of brands and sports is a strong combination. I’m looking forward to seeing what we can do together.”

Some of Dungey‘s major championship titles include the 2010 FIM Motocross of Nations Team/MX1 Champion; 2010 AMA 450 Class Motocross Champion and 2010 AMA 450 Class Supercross Champion.
