Fernando Alonso

Motor Sports

Fernando Alonso is one of the absolute best Formula 1 drivers on the Planet. Hailing from Spain, he won the Formula One World Driver’s Championship title on September 25, 2005 – at the age of 24 years and 58 days, making him the youngest Formula One World Drivers’ Champion. After retaining the title the following year, Alonso also became the youngest double Champion. Nicknamed El Nano, a typical pseudonym for Fernando in Asturias, his place of birth, Alonso acts as a Goodwill Ambassador for UNICEF.

  • Ken Roczen Crowned 450 Class Champion in Utah


    Posted 7 days ago by Chasen Marshall

    In the end, it came down to simply staying on two wheels. Ken Roczen had done what was needed in the first moto in Utah, finishing third behind his one and only title rival, Ryan Dungey, almost guanteeing a first 450 Outdoor title – as long as catastrophy didn’t strike. Aside from a scary moment midway through the first moto, when Roczen made contact with a lapper, almost pulling him off his bike, it was a pretty mellow coast to the title for the German who’s in his first year competing in the 450 class. Dungey took second in the moto, gaining two points on Roczen, meaning only a miracle could turn the tide of the title chase in Dungey’s favor.

  • Roczen Wins in Indiana, Taking Significant Step Toward Locking Up Title


    Posted 12 days ago by Chasen Marshall

    On a muddy track, drenched by heavy morning rain, Ken Roczen (1-2) was able to clinch his fifth overall victory of the season at the inaugural Thor Indiana National, extending his lead with just one round remaining. Ryan Dungey (2-9) finished third overall and now sits 20 points behind Roczen, after a late season charge that included back-to-back wins. “It’s a big monkey off my back,” Roczen said. “Seeing my points lead go down and now getting this win is a great feeling. The conditions didn’t bother me. It seems we always race in sunny conditions so it’s a great challenge when we face conditions this tough.”

  • Closing the Gap: Title Chase Within Single Digits Between Dungey and Roczen After Unadilla


    Posted 18 days ago by Chasen Marshall

    Ryan Dungey is within striking distance. With just two rounds and four motos remaining, Dungey made another major jump in the 450 Class title fight by earning his third win in the last four rounds at the Red Bull Unadilla National, closing to within single digits of his Oakley teammate Ken Roczen atop the standings. “It was an awesome day. We just wanted to make the most of the day and not get sidetracked [with the championship],” Dungey said. “There’s a lot of racing left still with two rounds to go, but things are going good. It feels great to get another overall, but I made it hard on myself in the second moto and let those guys [Tomac and Canard] get away. Maybe a couple more laps we could have got Canard, but he was riding really good.”
