It's not easy becoming a champion. Sacrifices need to be made to obtain such goal, and until you see the results, you question yourself why you even put yourself through such pain. For Ken Roczen, a jump into the premiere class meant a longer, more exhaustive schedule, and his body needed to keep up with such demands. So, it was announced in late 2013 that he would team up with the highly recognized Aldon Baker. For Roczen, the sacrifices were made, and in the end, he was rewarded with the 2014 450 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross championship in his rookie year.
For us, we were curious to see as to what exactly goes on behind the scenes in Clermont, Florida. Graciously, Roczen invited us out to his Florida home, and honestly, his daily routine is exhausting to watch. From sun up to sun down, there's a team of highly qualified individuals that surround the young German, making sure that he's getting the most out of his body and bike.
This is Ken Roczen's life. This is #lifeof94.
After two weeks of #lifeof94 we finally hit the track! Located about 30 minutes away from Ken Roczen’s Claremont home, the new Aldon Baker elite training facility features all of the components to make champions. With the help of Jason Baker from DreamTraxx, the crew where able to shape up a massive Supercross track out of the Florida white clay. We brought out the camera’s to witness Roczen’s second time out on the track, and the young German did not disappoint, as he threw unreal rhythm combinations and massive whips!
Next week, we head to Hart & Huntington in Orlando, Florida, to go behind the scenes of Roczen’s tattoo session with Ryan Eternal, tattoo artist on season five of Ink Master!
