WASHINGTON, D.C. — A motocross coach who traveled the country working with kids is now facing federal and state child sex crime charges.

According to the U.S. Department of Justice, 30-year-old Ryan Meyung engaged in sexually explicit conduct with six minors in order to create child porn between 2019 and 2021.

He was arrested on state charges in Tennessee in December 2021. Authorities in Tennessee say Meyung was running an Indiana-based business called “Live Your Dreams MX” that saw him travel the country building motocross tracks and teaching kids about the sport.
