During the 450 Main Event at the 2017 Anaheim Two SX, Team Honda HRC’s Ken Roczen suffered a terrifying crash in a technical rhythm lane. It appeared that Roczen mistimed the section and after leaving the take-off of one jump, ejected himself off of the bike and slammed into the ground. The impact left the winner of the year’s first two races with a compound fracture to the lower part of his left arm, a dislocated wrist, and a dislocated elbow. The amount of time he will miss as a result is uncertain.
Here’s to a quick recovery, KR94…
UPDATE | MONDAY JANUARY 23RD 7:57 AM
Roczen has released his first statement since the crash on Saturday night and confirmed that a pair of surgeries were deemed necessary to repair the damage. The first surgery took on Sunday, after Roczen was transported during the night from Southern California to Vail, Colorado, in order to see a preferred doctor. How long he will miss from the SX series is still uncertain.
Dislocated wrist, dislocated elbow and compounded radius. The first 30h absolutely sucked as none of the pain killers worked and it was really swollen. Gonna need few surgeries to get all this dialed. 🔴 I have gotten so many messages and was so pleased to read all of them. I didn’t message back as the circumstances right now are just a bit gnarly and it would probably take me a day to reply lol. Just know i saw them! Love all you! Gonna need a few days for further info.
