HRC’s Ken Roczen fought back from a massive first-race crash in the opening Lucas Oil Pro Motocross race at Spring Creek to win the second moto.

Roczen went down hard in the middle of the pack on lap one and got tangled up with team-mate Chase Sexton. After a quick check, he was back on his CRF450 but will be seeking medical attention today.

“It was definitely a hard one in the first moto. I got banged up really good and I need to make sure that my ribs aren’t broken,” said Roczen, speaking at the track. “I’ll be really sore tomorrow but as soon as I checked myselF I knew there was no question in my mind I was going to come back out here and give my best.

“That’s what we were born to do. I knew I didn’t have the best gate pick, but I got pretty lucky and made it work, and then rode a smart race. I’m just glad I could finish, and I did all I could for what it was.”
