Now this is going to be interesting. We just got word that Ken Roczen will be racing this years Red Bull Straight Rhythm on the same factory Honda CR250R that was raced by “The King” back in 2006! See the video and press release below.
It’s official. Ken Roczen will line up to race at Red Bull Straight Rhythm on October 5. And while the first question is always “who will race?” the second is “what will they ride?” In Roczen’s case, the answer is a 2006 Honda CR250 two-stroke, formerly raced by the King of Supercross himself, Jeremy McGrath. The bike was actually the last two-stroke to holeshot in a Supercross main event, which it did at the 2006 Phoenix race. Roczen will bring the bike back to life, but can he ride it to victory?
