I like Dungey and he will win more outdoor titles but any SX titles he won or will win are due to significant attrition.
You are right in what you say about Dungeys past lack of aggression. However, the title is given to the guy who wins the most points. Period. And he did. We're not talking about a series won by a guy who couldn't win a round. Dungey wins multiple rounds in every series, every year.
Dungey seems to me to be trying to step up the aggression lately, so I am hoping he has seen new faster, more aggressive pace and will try to match it. It is his second year on the KTM so hopefully he will be even more comfortable on it. We will see.
And hopefully all the guys will still be healthy come Dallas so you can see them all in action.
Bring on A1!!!!!!
