The Red Bull-produced Ride Out With Ronnie Renner show has been good so far, but all good things must come to an end. In the final installment of the three-part series, Renner heads out to Caineville, Utah, for a place he considers his favorite place to ride in the world.
After the open dunes and huge crowds at Camp RZR West in Glammis, Renner and his team load up and head for Dumont Dunes for some more dune time away from the crowds for the second episode of the Red Bull series Ride Out with Ronnie Renner.
There’s no doubt, Ronnie Renner has paid his dues. As one of the pioneers of freestyle motocross, he’s spent years risking life and limb and built a name for himself that has carried him into numerous other off-road pursuits. That being said, we’d be lying if we said we weren’t just a little bit jealous of his lifestyle and all the fun he gets to have (Red Bull even made a new series about is, which you can see the first video here). He definitely lives the off-road life that we all wish we could, as illustrated in this video from a day out at 212 land off-road park spent riding dirt bikes, driving RZRs and an SR1 car.
Ronnie Renner has a new video series brought to us by Red Bull. The first episode of the off-road-themed videos provides a perfect glimpse of what the show is all about: adventure, motorsports and good times.
Ronnie Renner can drive the wheels off of just about anything. It may be true that with age comes a cage, but the multi-time X Games Gold Medalist isn’t slowing down, that’s for sure. Recently Renner was spotted doing some UTV Motocross out at Milestone MX in Southern California. Anyone who thinks you can’t “moto” a UTV needs to take lessons from Renner.
Buffalo, NY: The Summer X Games in Los Angles, California, always deliver hours of exciting viewing to millions of extreme sports fans, and the competition in 2013 seemed better than ever. Dunlop athletes fared very well; in the eight Moto X categories, Dunlop-sponsored riders scored 23 of 24 podium positions.
In the dry, hard-packed track conditions that made for tricky riding in many of the final events, many of the freestyle and MX riders choose Dunlop’s Geomax® MX71™ tires for the slippery conditions.
Buffalo, NY: Dunlop proudly extends its congratulations to the 15 Dunlop-sponsored riders who won medals at X Games 17: Matt Buyten, Ronnie Renner, Myles Richmond, Mike Mason, Ronnie Faisst, Dany Torres, Jeremy Stenberg, Todd Potter, Jarryd McNeil, Cameron Sinclair, Vicki Golden, Tarah Gieger, Livia Lancelot, Mike Brown and Justin Soule. A mixture of Freestyle, Motocross and Endurocross motorcycle events thrilled spectators at the Staples Center on July 28-31, and out of a possible 24 medals up for grabs, Dunlop riders won 18. In addition, Dunlop riders swept the Moto X Step Up, Moto X Best Whip, Moto X Speed and Style, and Women’s Moto X events.
Buyten set a new world record on his Dunlop-equipped motorcycle in the Step Up competition, soaring over the bar at 37 feet to capture his fourth X Games gold and second-consecutive Moto X Step Up gold. Renner was awarded the silver medal after clearing 36.5 feet, while Richmond finished with the bronze, leaping 35.5 feet. X Games veteran Adams nabbed his first gold of the games in the Speed and Style competition—Mason took silver and Faisst bronze—before going on to win gold medal number two in the Freestyle competition. Spaniard Torres won bronze.
The Best Whip contest is always a crowd favorite as fans get the opportunity to vote via text for their favorite whip. Fans voted Stenberg the gold medal winner while defending gold medalist Potter earned the silver and McNeil secured the bronze. Defending Best Trick gold medalist Australian rider Sinclair won silver after executing a knack-knack double backflip in this year’s contest.
Golden won her first X Games gold medal by winning the Women’s Moto X aboard her Dunlop-fitted Kawasaki race machine, while X Games 14 gold medalist Gieger secured the silver medal and France’s Lancelot secured the bronze. Gieger scored her second silver medal of the games by finishing runner-up in the first-ever Women’s Enduro X event.
Dunlop-sponsored World Off Road Championship (WORCS) rider Mike Brown had a memorable first X Games, winning the silver medal in the debut Moto X Enduro X event, while two-time WORCS champion Justin Soule finished with the bronze.
“It’s great to see the Dunlop riders doing such a fine job at X Games 17 and winning 75 percent of the medals,” said Broc Glover, Senior Manager, Motorcycle Off-Road. “X Games event coverage reaches a huge television audience and attracts a vast crowd of spectators over the four days of competition. At such a high-visibility event and with the pressure of such a large audience watching, everyone performed tremendously aboard their Dunlop-equipped motorcycles at this prestigious annual event.”
