After winning the St.Louis supercross, Honda’s Ken Roczen tackled the thorny issue of slower riders getting in the way! When asked he said: “The top 10 can definitely win so the start is key. There’s a couple of roadblocks out there. When they get good starts it makes our lives a lot more difficult.”
But when asked to name the offending riders, he refused to name names. As his win at St.Louis didn’t involve coming through the pack, it’s likely he was referring to last week’s Anaheim race where he seemed to have a lot of problems getting past riders like Vince Freise. Take a look at Roczen’s GoPro edit from the race and see what you think.
He makes the comments at roughly 9m45s in the post race conference.
