Team Makita Suzuki signs new rider – Ryan Dungey

Brea CA: American Suzuki Motor Corp. (ASMC) announced today that Team
Makita Suzuki Racing signed Ryan Dungey to race the Makita Suzuki
RM-Z250 in the Motocross Lites class for the remainder of the 2006 AMA
Toyota Motocross Series. The 16-year-old Dungey’s first official race
with Makita Suzuki will be at Spring Creek MX Park in Millville, MN on
August 13, 2006. Dungey signed a two-year contract and will also race
the Makita Suzuki RM-Z250 in the 2007 AMA Supercross Championship.

“Ryan is an extremely talented young rider with an amazing work ethic
and I believe he has a lot of long-term potential,” said Makita Suzuki
Team Manager Roger De Coster. “He’s had success with amateur racing and
we believe that with a lot of guidance and a strong training regimen,
he will eventually be a very successful factory rider. Right now, we
just want Ryan to focus on learning to race on a factory level, without
any pressure. Then we will begin grooming him for championships later

Born and raised in Chaska MN, Dungey has been racing motocross for 11
years and he’s been with ASMC’s amateur program for two years. He’s won
11 major amateur titles in the past year and a half, including the
prestigious 2005 Loretta Lynn’s Amateur National. Most recently, he
carded several podium finishes in his first Pro events at the 2006 Ford
Mammoth Motocross.

“I definitely think signing with Makita Suzuki is a great opportunity
for me,” said Dungey. “I’m looking forward to working with Roger De
Coster and I know most riders don’t get this kind of a chance. Yes,
it’s a little bit intimidating, but I’m not scared because I know I
have confidence in myself and Suzuki isn’t putting any pressure on me.
My first race is at Millville and that is one of my favorite tracks.”

Update on Ernesto Fonseca, from Tony Gardea at Next Level Sports Management July 12th, 2006

Hello everyone –

Ernesto is doing very well in his rehab in Colorado. He and his wife
Carolina and mother Catalina are truly the most courageous people I
have ever been around. To think what Ernesto has gone through the past
four months is disheartening. But to see how he has handled what has
been dealt to him, this terrible injury and the impact it has on his
everyday life, inspires me beyond belief. Ernesto has handled his
spinal cord injury with the same determination and colorful spirit that
had gotten him to the top of the professional motocross world.

He continues to improve little by little as he follows the advance
routine of his doctors, nurses and therapists. He now is free of all
the hardware that was placed on/in him at the Riverside hospital, which
means good riddance to the neck brace, breathing tubes and feeding
tubes. He is freely moving around in a manual wheelchair (that’s right,
he is able to get around in a chair with the full use of his arms and
hands!) and, actually, on a recent trip, I had his doctor tell me
“Ernesto is one of the most active patients that have ever had … the
nurses have a hard time finding him!” He and Carolina, and his mom,
regularly get out of the hospital to eat or to go shopping and have
done everything they can to maintain his previously busy lifestyle.

His weekdays consist of a 9 am to 4 pm work schedule that includes
physical work out routines and therapy, both occupational and physical.
He is also studying for his GED, which he hopes to complete over time.
He has his own room now and spends the night with Carolina, who is
supposed to sleep in her own bed but some times she slips into
Ernesto’s bed in the early morning hours!

They seem very committed to making the best of his situation and have
not given up on the hope of walking. He currently has no feeling below
his chest, but on the brighter side, he is getting stronger in his
shoulders, arms and wrists. He is able to use his hands, although
limited, but he is working hard everyday to improve in that area. He
can feed himself, hold a phone and is working on getting better with a

So things are really looking up for Ernesto and we all pray everyday
for his long term health, both physically and mentally. He is a strong
person and has used the support and well wishes of his fans, friends
and sponsors. The letters continue to pour in and he really does
appreciate all that people have done.

Thanks again for the support and continue to check in to his web site for updates and photos on his recovery.

Also, Vans Shoes is running a web-based promotion from June 15 – August
31, where they are going to donate $5 from the sale of each Bend 2 and
Dunbar model shoes – the web-site is

Update on Ernesto Fonseca, from Tony Gardea at Next Level Sports Management April 13th, 2006

It’s been over five weeks since Ernesto’s terrible crash and I wanted
to send along another note to update everyone on his condition. He was
transported yesterday (Tues) to Craig Hospital in Englewood, Colo.,
where will begin an extensive rehabilitation program. Craig is
considered one of the best spinal cord injury facilities in the world
and has an experienced staff of doctors and therapists that will give
Ernesto the support and drive to fight through the very tough road

He received excellent treatment at Riverside County Regional and made
many, many friends. From neurosurgeons to nurses to therapists,
Ernesto’s upbeat personality, even through all of the tough times, was
very contagious and he won over many in the intensive care unit. Those
who visited Ernesto over the past few weeks can attest to this,
especially when the “two person limit” in the room was constantly
expanded to accommodate the long list of family, friends and industry
acquaintances who stopped in to visit.

Ernesto is still on a ventilator but his breathing has been getting
stronger over the last few days and everyone (doctors included) fully
expects his breathing to return to normal. He has good movement in his
arms and wrists, with slight movement in his fingers that seem to be
improving. He still has no feeling or movement from his chest down.
However, through healing, hard work and prayer, he can regain that
during his stay at Craig.

He continues to receive cards and letters from the thousands of fans
who care so deeply for him. He enjoys having the cards read to him and
finds inspiration from them. He personally asked me to thank everyone
for their support and to let them know he us up for this fight and
without them it would be tough to win.

I’ll continue to keep you updated as he continues on this journey. Oh
yeah, continue to send letters and cards and encourage others to do the

This is an open letter to the motocross community from Ludovic Boinnard of ONE Industries. Please do what you can to assist.

David Bailey Benefit: The Icon needs your support

Dear friends in the motocross community,

This letter is about David Bailey. Unfortunately, it is not a time to
talk about how well David is doing at overcoming adversity. It is not a
time to talk about how once again David has shown the unbelievable
resolve to overcome recent significant physical setbacks. This is a
letter to ask for help.

Most of you know David’s history and dedication to the sport of
motocross. You know of his great successes, and also of the great
sacrifice that David paid, ultimately ending his career and confining
him to a wheelchair for the rest of his life.

Over the past twenty years, David has always lent a hand and done what
he could to help other injured riders when possible. He is unaware that
some of his closest friends and family have now reached the conclusion
that his recent setbacks have simply escalated to the point of needing
emergency financial assistance in an immediate fashion. David is in a
very bad place as we type this. The Phrase “It’ll get worse, before it
gets better” is definitely the case here. David has already undergone
one surgery and is now in need of financial help for the next.
Physically, he is broken and needs special medical attention
immediately – which he cannot afford at this time.

We are asking the motocross community to please pull together and help
David. Time is of the essence, and the situation is very serious. We
ask that you donate whatever you can afford as soon as possible to The
Full Circle Foundation. This foundation helps athletes like David to
get help when needed, and was founded by one of the Bailey’s good
friends a few years ago. The Full Circle Foundation knows of and
understands the very serious position that David is in, and they will
be responsible for making sure your donation helps David directly.

Those of us who know David personally understand that he does not feel
comfortable asking people for anything, especially with the timing of
what has happened recently with fellow riders Ernesto Fonseca and James
Marshall. We are currently in the process of planning other benefits
due to the fact that the amount of money needed is quite substantial.
Since immediate medical attention is of the utmost importance, it is
imperative that we begin fundraising immediately.

Please Donate today:

Visit and click on the “Donate Now” link at the bottom of the page and choose “Clinic Program”, or

Please mail all checks to:

Full Circle Foundation

Attn: David Bailey Fund

3585 Keefer Road

Chico CA 95973

Full Circle Foundation is a 501c(3) tax-deductible foundation. (All
letters will be forwarded to David and a tax-deductible receipt will be
mailed to you for all checks sent)

Before you finish this letter and decide to perhaps do something
tomorrow or next week, please understand that we would never ask for
help for a person like David Bailey without completely understanding
how dire the situation has become.

Please read the statement below from Don Flaner, president of Full Circle Foundation, regarding David’s medical situation:

David has developed a very dangerous pressure sore that has become so
deep that it has become life threatening. Insurance is only taking care
of part of the medical costs and David now requires much needed medical
attention that goes beyond insurance. As many of you know David is the
Spokesperson for Full Circle Foundation and FCF is very involved with
the Reeve-Irvine Center. We were very fortunate to have had time with
Christopher Reeve. Unfortunately for all of us, and the reason for our
concern, is that Christopher died from this same type of infection that
David now has, and that has now made this extremely important.

I am very proud to have David as a friend and incredibly grateful for
all of the work he has done for Full Circle Foundation, especially the
nights he has sat up answering letters and emails consoling others that
have been injured. His continued dedication to our sport is incredible,
and his desire to help others is way beyond that of a mere mortal. It
is now payback time.
