The first half of the East Rutherford Supercross Main Event went great for Progressive Ecstar Suzuki rider Ken Roczen as he executed some impressive moves and even took the lead for a while. However, things took a turn for the worse when Roczen bounced his head off the bars at the finish line, causing his goggles to come off due to sweat on the lens. The night didn’t get any easier as he was later roosted, resulting in his right eye getting caked with mud that he couldn’t clear. Despite these setbacks, Roczen managed to hold onto his Suzuki and keep it running after crashing in the whoops. Overall, he was pleased with his performance and happy to finish in third place.
Ken Roczen on Social Media – We went from perfect conditions to this 😆 super proud of the team @hepmotorsports@soules86@l_brooks@activeride The bike was flawless yesterday
Conditions like that are survival.
I had a great first half of the main making down moves and leading for a bit. I ended up casing the absolute 💩 out of the finish line and bounced my head off the cross bar… which resulted in me ditching my goggles because i couldn’t see from the sweat in my lens from the impact. Later on I got roosted and my right eye really got caked with mud and i couldn’t clear the mud from my eye ball.
I crashed in the whoops but luckily held the clutch and kept the bike running.
It was entertaining … P 3 on the night. I am super happy with everything and content with the result. Let’s keep it going these next few rounds.
