Sorry ladies, Ryan Dungey is off the market.

Dungey jumped on Twitter and Instagram Wednesday night to announce his engagement to longtime girlfriend Lindsay Siegle.

The news comes just days after Team USA – comprised of Dungey (MX1), Eli Tomac (MX2) and Justin Barcia (MX3/Open) – scored a runner-up finish to Team Belgium at the Motocross of Nations in Teutschenthal, Germany.

After a successful start to the weekend in Teutschenthal, Germany, where they qualified second overall, Team USA had high hopes entering Sunday’s 67th running of the Motocross of Nations. The lineup of Ryan Dungey (MX1), Eli Tomac (MX2), and Justin Barcia (MX3/Open) was one of the most formidable tandems in recent years and following a hard-to-swallow third-place finish one year prior, this trio wanted nothing more than to bring the Chamberlain Cup back to the states.

While Team USA was the group to beat throughout the afternoon on Sunday, a couple mistakes ended up costing the team its 23rd title at the illustrious event. Instead, it was Team Belgium, arguably the biggest threat to the U.S. coming into the event, that prevailed to claim its 15th MXoN crown, its first since 2004, with Team USA following just three points behind in second.
