“Two weeks ago it was almost unrealistic”

That was Ken’s quote about whether he thought he’d be racing at Hangtown. He’s looking to ride through the first three races, and pick up the pace at High Point.

He also mentioned that he’d been dealing with tendonitis in a thumb.

Did anyone ask him to compare his status compared to a few years ago when he had the back problem and barely qualified in the top 15?

i would be perfectly fine with seeing him cruise in the top 10 for the first few rounds. I Would rather see that than pushing too hard in the top 5 resulting in another crash.

Just like supercoss, its a win to even be out there. I'm still surprised he didnt lose his arm in Webbs wheel. If he's able to salvage points and put himself in a position to be in the top 5 by Ironman that would be amazing. I was never a huge fan of his, but I have a great deal of respect for coming back like he has.

Were is this interview?

He’s looking to “ride” the first 3 races. I thought it would be rushing it for him to actually be “racing”

It's probably not really comparable
But when he had that problem in 2015 he skipped pressday and couldn't even walk properly on friday

Yeah i remember that.

I would imagine that he is in a better spot this year compared to that? I guess we'll see soon!
