Ryan Sipes is definitely a rider with tremendous amounts of potential. However, luck has not been kind to the young rider from Kentucky. The 2005 season was Sipes’ first year in the pro ranks. He went into the 125cc West Coast Supercross series as a rookie and ended the tour in the eighth spot; a respectable result for a newcomer like Sipes.

 

The 2006 season was rough on Sipes. During the second Supercross round in Anaheim, California, he broke bones on the top of his foot. The injury proved costly as he missed the entire Supercross season. When the outdoor nationals started, he injured his foot again, this time at Glen Helen Raceway. The season was definitely hard for Sipes, but it was not for lack of trying. In fact, he might have tried too hard, and just when he looked to be on his way to a successful recovery, another injury would strike.

Moving to the Rockstar Racing team in 2013, Sipes enjoyed considerable success that year. With a wife and daughter back at home though, he saw a shift in his priorities and decided to retire from racing Supercross and motocross full-time at the end of the season, transitioning to the GNCC series instead. Sipes did however mention that he might look to race some Nationals on the east coast.
