Ryan Dungey’s charge to become the first motocross athlete to land the cover of a Wheaties box, the cereal known for awarding the world’s best athletes for their performances with an image against the iconic orange backdrop. The motocross community has rallied behind the Red Bull KTM rider and he has climbed higher up the results with every vote logged through the Wheaties NEXT competition hosted by MapMyFitness.com.
We broke down the details of the competition recently, but figured that hearing how you can participate directly from Ryan Dungey would offer even more motivation. Chances to vote are earned for every thirty minutes of your workout logged, with participants able to vote up to two times daily. One of the more interesting things Dungey mentions is that you can follow his regimen through MapMyFitness, including his time on the bike.
Should Dungey win the competition, which has him pitted against athletes in soccer, running, lacrosse, and mixed martial arts, Wheaties will donate to the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. This is a cause Dungey has supported for years, and one that helps countless people around the world.
As with anything in this day and age, the contest has a dedicated following on social media outlets like Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. Build the buzz by using the hashtags #TeamDUNGEY and #WheatiesNEXT when posting your workouts or favorite shots of Ryan in action.
