Drama in opening 450 main – Roczen in pain, Friese penalty!
Vince Friese wiped Dean Wilson out to take the lead back after both riders jumped on yellows when Brayton and Aaron Tanti went down big.
Aranda had endoed out of third letting Roczen into second after all the drama but the he went down hard trying to pass Friese on the last turn, limping back to the bike. Friese had crossed jumped Roczen a couple of laps earlier forcing the German into avoiding action…crazy drama as a grimacing Roczen lined up for race two on the back row once again.
And then Friese got a two spot penalty for taking Wilson out!
Dean just spent 7 laps behind Vince holding up the whole field to only pass him and get Friesed 1 lap later. pic.twitter.com/EGb5uDTFY0

Amazingly in race two it was Friese again leading over Wilson! Friese made a mistake under pressure letting Wilson into the lead as a tough Roczen came through to fourth by the halfway mark, them passed Savatgy for third and found himself behind Friese again! Ken couldn’t make the move as Wilson took the win.
Wilson said the debt is not paid: “No its not, that first moto was a disappointment. When Vince is behind you you know he’s going to clean you out. He’s a dirty rider brake checking in the back, I’ve never experienced anything like that.”
