Update as of 4/19/17: Ken Roczen has dropped another slightly graphic but big update for his recovery. Not a lot of details on his end other than it relates to his elbow. From the looks of things, he's had some sort of bone graph performed...which ties into somethings we've heard about the elbow taking some serious damage. Crossing our fingers for you Ken!



Update as of 2/20/17: Ken is nearing the end of his surgery list and it's really stacking up. He just finished up number eight, has a ninth one on Wednesday and will need one more to get the external fixator out...that's ten total! Yikes... Check below for the latest from the man himself.





Update as of 1/27/17: Ken has updated us from Instagram once again as he goes in for his third surgery today. The latest update includes photos of what his arm looks like without the bandages on, it's quite graphic...

Update as of 1/24/17: Ken's latest update on IG after his first surgery is up. He's in good spirits, but mentions he's going to require at least four more surgeries, yikes! Get well soon Ken, check below for the quote from his latest post.



Update as of 1/23/17: Ken Roczen has updated fans with his overall list of injuries, including a dislocated wrist and elbow, along with the compound fractured radius. It sounds like Ken is dealing with a lot of swelling and hasn't gone in for his initial surgery yet, as he's actually flying to Vail, Colorado to see a specialist of his choice to perform the first surgery.



Just got an update from the floor, from the sounds of it the Alpinestars Medic crew is signaling for a broken arm with Ken Roczen.

Edit: The HRC Honda team has confirmed a compound fracture in the lower left arm for Ken Roczen, he was transported to a local hospital to decide if immediate surgery is required or if they will weigh the options.

That's generally what the splint/wrapped up arm signifies.

That was a bad get off. The whole aura changed on the broadcast the second he went down.

1/21/2017 9:52 PM

Hope it's not the back of the arm.

1/21/2017 9:52 PM

Dam was looking good

1/21/2017 9:52 PM

It was clear from the slow mo, left arm is badly broken. Gutted over here.

Over-confidence, feeling invincible and a split second lack of focus.

I hope it's a simple break and he can get it in a cast and get back out there, ala TP199. Praying for a fast recovery for Kenny.

Dungey is about to make this so boring.

1/21/2017 9:53 PM

Fuck!

Thanks for conformation, ML!

1/21/2017 9:53 PM

Yeah. When a slow mo shows your fingers flopped back touching your forearm you're fucked.

1/21/2017 9:54 PM

Sick to my stomach for a contender to go so early in the season

1/21/2017 9:55 PM

Feel horrible for Ken. It seems he has crashed this same exact way the last few times, monster cup and in the mud on the suzuki when dungey hit him and where Ryan went down too. Is it too much of an excitebike technique? Man really bummed.

I don't have to be as smart as you hope to be some day anymore.

Man he hit his head hard also!

That wreck was fucking brutal! Can't hit the ground much harder than that.

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.

Dang, even as a Dungey fan that is gut wrenching to watch. Hope the best for Ken, he's one of the greats, and hope to see him back soon.

|

1/21/2017 10:02 PM

He was just super unlucky. Nothing you can do when you hit a kicker like that. Hope it's just as straight forward as a broken bone and there's nothing complicated. Heal up soon Kenny

Didn't think that I was much of a fan of Roczen until the moment that happened. He's cocky but damn, he brings a lot of fun and entertainment to the sport. Reminds me of when James was still "Bubba."

If it's a forearm maybe aldon can sell him a 4arm strong
