He says "Everything is still up for grabs".
I'd like to believe it, I'm not sure I do, though...
And he just missed a great opportunity...
Can he do something? And what?
Your thoughts?

Webb has already beat him. Only way Kenny wins is if cooper DNF’s.

If he sweeps Atlanta, it’s possible.

Can’t say Webb ain’t doing everytbing right. He’s making adjustments throughout the race and able to capitalize then check out quick.

I think he’s in roczens head a bit too. Webb passed him before the sand section and gave him plenty of room and roczen stood the bike up almost expecting contact...

What if Ken playing "Mr Nice Guy" is all part of his plan? What if his mind game is on a different level? I voted Yes he can still turn this around. Stay the course, there's still a lot of main events left.

The only way he turns it around is if Webb has at least one mechanical DNF or crashes and gets hurt.

Of course he can, but will he... history isn't exactly on his side for digging out of a hole in the second half of a season.

I don't dislike Webb, he's a brilliant racer, but I think a lot of us just look at Kenny with rose-colored glasses because it just feels like he should have been a 450 SX champion by now. I think maybe the guard has changed and a lot of us who think of Ken as the heir apparent are in a bit of denial. I'll fully admit I'm in that group.

I remember feeling very similar to this when RV took over. It wasn't until after his second SX championship that it really occurred to me that Reed and Stew were not going to come in and stop him. And that head to head, neither was Dungey.

And unfortunately for the rest of the guys, Webb seems to have an RC / RV like level of focus and tenacity. He had two shit years to make him really motivated and now he is peaking. At this point it would not surprise me to see him go on a roll....for a few seasons.

Anything can happen, and that's a proven fact. I hope Kenny digs deep and everything goes his way, but that's the only way I see him beating Webb straight up at this point.

Don’t like Webb at all but he is the man in supercross. I’m a Kroc fan but sometimes you have to just call it like it is.

I voted no. At this point in the season, I think Ken and others needed to stop the CW momentum. He has shown in the past, when confidence is high, it's all but impossible to see poor finishes. At this point, it is going to take a dnf or big get off for a different points leader at the season's end. JMOO

I'd say it depends more on what Webb will to rather than what Kenny will do. If Webb is as good as in the last rounds I don't see it happening no matter how good Kenny rides.

This 100%

If it was anyone else but Webb, I would say yes. But it's over. Ken went surfing on Thursday, Webb was testing. Different competitors. One is an alpha and one is selling his R8.

Webb has SERIOUS momentum.

I wish he would to make it interesting. Eli is out of it but still wants wins so he could be the spoiler that could swing it either way,

Sure he can. But it's going to take some bad starts or bad luck for Webb.

I was raised just off HWY 126 in Valencia during the 80's.

I heard every Roczen thread makes webb faster.

Can Ken still turn it around? Yes.

Will Ken turn it around? We'll see.

I’m a fan of all of these guys, for sure, but I think it’s obvious that Webb wants it the most. Watching him charge from behind and make key passes late in the race, and then win...the dude never gives up. I’d like to see Roczen win a title before he hangs it up, and he’s not out of it yet, but he better figure it out quick.

Ofcourse he can still turn it around.

I don't think he will. But it's very much a possibility.

Pretty funny that the only "residency" that wasn't swept this year was Houston which was the first rounds. We all know how unpredictable the first races of the season are. Really hope we get back to a normal schedule next year. Staying in the same city where a certain type of dirt appears to cater to a certain rider takes away from the excitement a little.

If he wants be the champ, only thing he has to do is ride his motorcycle faster.

Of course he can. In fact, this brings me to an early episode of "Math with Falcon."

Ken Roczen sits in 2nd in the points standings, just 15 points behind Cooper Webb. With 5 rounds remaining, he could win all 5 rounds and Webb could finish 2nd in every race but the title would belong to KR. If Tomac interjects himself with a win, things get a little more complicated, but the short story is that this title is still wide open with anything other than a disastrous race for either KR or CW.

Here's a crazy scenario:
KR, CW and ET somehow all suffer horrendous races in each of the 5 remaining rounds. None of them scores more than 3 points each time. Jason Anderson could win out and take the whole enchilada, assuming there are some other less-than-perfect races by Stewart, Plessinger and Barcia.

This is why we run the races, folks.

Ken,s lyrics to his latest song. Well I,m racing around the world with Webb on my back. Trying to get a ride in a Cadillac or a Limo. I bought a ocean front house for my ego. I thought I was going fast , but you can never tell. I got a get away from Webb on this hell. Well I need a house boat, I need a plane, I need a butler and trip to Spain. I need everything the world owes me. I tell it to myself and I agree. Ok I stole a little from , Alice Cooper Caught in a dream song.
