Ken Roczen Has won 25 out of the last 30 races he had lined up for.

That's awesome but the real issue is the fact that he hasn't lined up for the past 26 races that were run.

He had fully functioning limb, wasnt sitting on a couch for a year didn't have a baby arm either. He will be a 5-10th rider till outdoors.

Never try to argue with idiots; they will only bring you down to their level.....and being more experienced, they will beat you at their own game!

Where he finishes I believe is not important at this stage. He’s just returning from an injury that nearly cost his arm. I’m impressed that he’s even back in the game. What he can and can’t acomplish on the track at this stage is secondary. He’s put in the effort and has been training and is ready. I wish him safety and success. His determination is inspiring.

Anybody that races knows what missing 26 races and almost losing his arm is going to do to his chances of winning this year!

If he does win he will reset all future expectations.

Look at Villopoto in 2010, broke both legs badly. Came back 2011 won A1 and eventually the title

anyone who doubts this kid would be spouting the same shit if he hadn't got wrecked last season.

i got Roczen winning it all this year

If he’s top ten at A1, he should be happy and it would be a great thing to build on.

|

1/3/2018 7:38 AM

He's crashed out of every SX season. Now, after sitting on the sidelines for nearly a year, not racing at all, he's THE favorite? I don't see how this last year makes him better. Until he has speed and SX consistency I don't have him as a threat to win title. Any given race, absolutely.

I like Roczen but I’m not being emotional at all about him for good or bad.

Dude you’re a real piece of work. Not accurate at all.

You sure do spew a bunch of negativity around here

My worry is when he has his first big fall and how that arm holds up.

I thought the same thing a few hours ago. Can it handle a first turn crash?

He has crashed out in 2015 and 2017
He finished 3rd and 2nd in 2014 and 2016.
Before he had that crash in 2015 he hadn't missed a SINGLE race in his entire career which goes back to the Portugal GP in 2009

Not many riders on the line that have a better record than that.

Go for it! Don't let a little thing like fear, or common sense hold you back.

You really think that he put in all that rehab this year to be happy with a top 10?
I think he would mighty disappointed with himself if he's not top 4, knowing A1
Is not the place to over achieve .

In 2017 he ACTUALLY missed:
14 SX races
24 MX races
1 US MXGP race
1 MXoN race
1 Monster Cup
1 Red Bull Straight Rhythm
1 Paris SX
1 Geneva SX
1 SUPER-X race (maybe)

That's a lot of missed racing for anyone. I'm just glad he can ride again. Shows how much heart that guy has. Our sport needs him for sure. I hope he can jump right back into winning pace, but its going to be VERY TOUGH.
