Supercross star Ken Roczen back on track at Anaheim 1

BY Hannah Wing • January 7, 2018

On January 21, 2017 Ken Roczen was trying to catch the lead spot during Anaheim 2. He hit a bump, flew off of his bike, and endured an arm injury that could've ended his Supercross career.

After 11 surgeries and about a year of recovery time, Roczen strutted into Friday's A1 press conference in a suit and tie, both excited and cautious to get back on the track.

While other Supercross stars like Eli Tomac, Marvin Musquin, and Chad Reed faced the media as well, all eyes and ears were on Roczen and his determination to race again.

Media members asked riders what they thought of Roczen's return after his accident. Rider Blake Baggott said that, "it really shows how tough the guys in this sport are."

Roczen will kick off the 2018 Monster Supercross tour at Anaheim 1 at Angel Stadium.
