Ryan Sipes is a dirt bike racer from Kentucky, who became a professional in the summer of 2004. He’s well known for being a modern Moto Renaissance Man. In other words, he’s versatile in numerous areas of the sport, often placing well regardless of competition. Likewise, he has managed to get high placements in a variety of races. For example, he placed third in the 2011 Monster Energy AMA Supercross Championship’s SX LITES E event. In addition, he has won a few races, further showing his skill in competing in different types of races. For example, Ryan Sipes’ victories also include the 2011 Monster Energy AMA Supercross Championship’s SX LITES W event and the 2019 Lucas Oil AMA Pro Motocross Championship’s 125 All Star event.

Ryan Sipes Getting Up Again

Of course, Ryan Sipes has had his fair share of injuries as well, however few of them have resulted in him stopping racing for any period of time. Moreover, none have ended his dirt bike racing career entirely. One such injury was from Ryan Sipes’ crash in 2013 at the Spring Creek Nationals. He sustained a broken finger and some cracked ribs from this particular dirt event. These injuries may have deterred others from continuing racing from fear of greater injuries. However, this wasn’t enough to keep Ryan Sipes from competing, as only a week afterwards he was racing once again. Similarly, his crash in the 2021 Monster Energy Supercross meant he failed to qualify for the main event. But once again he was on his feet- or rather, his dirt bike- not long afterwards. Despite it all, Ryan continues dirt bike racing, coming back again and again, and continuing to place well in numerous races.

"I love the MAKO360! With my history of broken wrists and even carpal tunnel surgery, I need all the cushion I can get. The MAKO gives it to me without sacrificing front end feel like some other systems. The other thing I really like about is is its strength. Good luck bending or breaking it. It's tough as nails.”
