Red Bull KTM rider Ken Roczen won Saturday night’s season opener in front of a sold-out crowd at Angel Stadium of Anaheim.

Roczen managed to lead 12 of the 20 laps and keep several championship-winning riders at bay to capture his first career 450SX Main Event win.

“This is insane,” Roczen said. “I got off to a good start and was holding on really tight. When there were four laps to go, I realized that I could win.”

Throughout his career, Ryan Villopoto has let his riding do his talking. For the last three years he’s been the most dominant rider on the planet and given how seemingly untouchable he’s been en route to three straight Monster Energy Supercross titles, it’s surprising to think that he’s done so unassumingly.

In reality, that’s how it’s been. His quiet demeanor and get-the-job-done style has set him apart from dominant stars of the past, but make no mistake about it, Villopoto is still the sport’s brightest star even if he doesn’t necessarily crave the spotlight. As the start of a new season looms in just a matter of hours inside Angel Stadium, Villopoto is gearing up for a historic run at a fourth career title.
