RCH Suzuki Factory Racing’s Ken Roczen continued his blistering start to the outdoor season turning in a perfect 1-1 performance in Saturday’s Red Bull High Point National, collecting his seventh win in eight motos and third overall victory of the 2016 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship in America.

At the same time, the 22-year-old Soaring Eagle/ Jimmy John’s/ Suzuki RM-Z450 rider extended his points lead to 41 over second-placed Eli Tomac with one-third of the season already run.

Said Roczen: “I think this was probably the gnarliest track we’ve ridden all year. It got super rough. They added a lot of mulch and most of the stuff pushes to the side, especially when you water it, so it was really sketchy. It was definitely a tough track, which made for great racing. I grabbed the holeshot in the first moto and it’s always good to have a clear track. I think a couple of people crashed behind me so I had a little gap. I just tried to ride a smart race and take the checkers. I was super-happy with that.

“It was the 40th anniversary of High Point and that’s a pretty big number. Coming away with a 1-1, I can’t complain at all. Obviously, the most important thing is to be healthy … for all of us. It was good racing so I’m super happy.”

Roczen’s RCH team-mate Broc Tickle turned in his most-consistent performance of the season, riding his Suzuki RM-Z450 to a solid eighth-place finish in the first moto and 10th in the second. The sturdy outing was Tickle’s second top-10 overall finish of the season and he is now 12th in the standings, just two points out of 10th.
