After one of the wettest Supercross races ever this past weekend in San Diego, Ken Roczen posted on his Instagram about the amount of lime used on the track which has caused burns and rashes as well as extremely sore nipples.
Ken said, “Yesterday was a crazy day! I won my heat race and pulled a massive holeshot in the Main only to throw it away in the second turn 😡 i guess i was in second the whole time and then i got passed on the last straight away to go back to 3rd 🥴 Podium finish in these condition is fine by me and also sitting solid In points leaving the west coast. 🤙🏽 thank you peeps. 🙃@honda_powersports_us @redbull @foxracing @goartofsport @canyon_na @stancesocks @breitling
Ps. Me and other riders had problems with getting burns and rashes from the lime. It’s so bad that i can Barely sit today for real! Nipples are pretty much gone too lol. This sucks”
Tyler Bowers has also taken to social media to complain. He said: “So are we going to do something about these chemical burns on our bodies and our destroyed bikes or we just going to act like nothing happened?
“Because now I look like I have leprosy and I have to literally scrap my bike. Lime will not dry up a track that is already a full pond. Just destroys all of our equipment and now the riders.”
