Ryan Dungey dominated the competition and had one of the best seasons in Motocross history. Not only did he win the 450 title but had some very impressive stats to top off the season. Put of 391 total laps this past season he won 153 of them, which almost 40% of all laps. With those kind of stats you can count on Dungey reclaiming the title. We look forward to see where the 2016 Supercross season takes him. Will the return of #7 James Stewart be a threat or will he ride the season out with another title?
