No, really, Suzuki won EVERYTHING in MX this year

Jiminy, was no one able to stop the Rockstar Makita team outdoors? Apparently not even with twice as many wheels. A guy named Dustin Miller won the 2009 Professional ATV motocross title for the powerhouse team, really completing Suzuki's sweep of American MX.

Miller, Dungey and Reed. Congratulations on a phenomenal year!

This is a cool snap of Miller's race quad taken at Suzuki's championship celebration ceremony, shot by GuyB of course. Also check out his nice pic of Mat Mladin's championship-winning road rocket, making that yet another fast Australian winning an American motorcycle racing title on a Rockstar Makita-sponsored Suzuki. Wow.

Wait, what?

I’m not a p****.

That's what 250 National "Vice Champion" Christophe Pourcel told Racer X's Steve Cox in this "5 Minutes With..." interview.

Before saying that, Pourcel had just claimed that newly crowned 250 National Champion Ryan Dungey was "scared" to race with him at Steel City, and that "He was pretty fast today, but he couldn’t have ridden with me if I didn’t want him to."

Way to stay classy, Chris.

Steel City: Captain America

Let it soak in, Ryan. You earned it! The Number 1 plate in the most important motocross series in the country.

Next up: representing the United States at the Motocross of Nations, where he'll be sporting the Number 1 plate as well.

Steel City: Suzuki Sweep

Ryan Dungey is the new 250cc American motocross champion, specifically, the 2009 Lucas Oil AMA Pro Motocross Champion in the 250 division. Ryan is also the 2009 Monster Energy Supercross Series West Region Champion in the same division, so this has been quite the year for this young man.

But Ryan's outdoor title also matches nicely with the 450cc crown claimed by his Rockstar Makita Suzuki team mate, Chad Reed. Suzuki now officially owns outdoor motocross. At least for now.

Check out GuyB's great gallery at Vital MX.

Steel City: Not Enough

This has been a phenomenal year in America for Christophe Pourcel, but... but clearly the man is not happy with second place. Here he's seen between motos, drinking an energy beverage and not exactly smiling. Pourcel smoked the field to go 1-1 at the final round in Pennsylvania, but it just wasn't enough. GuyB explains it.

Steel City: Flight Club

Cool shot of Broc Tickle kickin' it in the first 250 moto at the Steel City finale. GuyB gets the props.
