MINI-VIEW: ROGER DeCOSTER - CAPTAIN AMERICA
Ken Roczen is so focused on winning, but he looks a bit dejected on the podium sometimes. What advice do you offer Roczen?
It’s not easy! It’s not just trying on race day, but the whole week. Both of my guys have a ways to go on preparation. It’s the first time that they have raced a full season of the Nationals. When you tell them how hot it’s going to be at some of the races they tell me that it’s also hot in Europe. Well, it’s a little bit different here. Also, the level of competition is higher.
I often wonder if the KTM might be a little under-powered.
Bike is not under powered me thinks.
It's a fitness thing. Ken is one hell of an athlete and in better shape that probably 95% of of the other guys who line up........it's just the other 5% ( Bagget , Barcia and Tomac ) are in slightly better shape. They are also more used to this pace , heat , the tracks , ect......
Ken WILL be fine......this is his first year here , and he's young. He'll get it. You can tell the dude is trying his hardest , and you can see it on his face that he's a little disappointed.......not quite sure what everyone was expecting.
And there goes Jeffro. One of God's own prototypes. A super high-powered mutant of some kind never even considered for mass production. Too weird to live, and too rare to die.

The man just said KR won't listen to experience and by not taking it seriously during the week he's getting his ass handed to him on race days.
There is a principle which is a bar against all information, which is proof against all argument, and which cannot fail to keep man in everlasting ignorance. That principle is condemnation before investigation.
Those dudes on Vital take shit WAY too seriously. I think they think they are signed on to a "let's cure cancer" message board
I bet he's lost in the vaginal vortex..... haha.
Roger doesn't know what he's talking about.
Maybe Marvin(and Roczen)will start to listen to Roger after that first moto today.......
