ICYMI | Catching Up with Ryan Dowd | Presented by Race Tech By Billy Rainford Ryan Dowd is the rider who holds the #14 for the 2021 season. We didn’t see him in 2020 due to the COVID-19 border situation and because of the fact he went in a different direction last year, and we’ll talk to him about that. Last time we saw Ryan, the 2019 season, he was #46.
