ROCZEN & SUZUKI LEAD AMA MX AFTER GLEN HELEN

While it might not show on paper, no one had anything for Ken Roczen and his RCH Suzuki Factory Racing RM-Z450 on Saturday afternoon at Glen Helen Raceway in California, America.

Fresh off a dominant 1-1 performance in last weekend’s Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship season opener – and his seventh career Pro Motocross overall win – the Soaring Eagle/ Jimmy John’s/ Suzuki Factory Racing rider was poised to match that exact result at the weekend’s second round: The 22-year-old German was out-front with a 15-plus-second lead in the first moto and was primed to pick-up his first win at the famed southern California race track. Unfortunately, the remarkable cushion wasn’t enough to hold the top-spot after a suspension issue on the front-end of his machine halted Roczen’s progress, ultimately forcing him to surrender the lead with three laps to go, and he finished fourth.

Still, Roczen demonstrated the championship grit that won him the 2014 series title by coming back and winning the second moto by almost 20 seconds, leaving little doubt of who was the fastest. At the end of the day, Roczen left Glen Helen with a solid 4-1 finish, maintaining the points lead and the red number plate that goes along with it.
