Roczen riding injured!
Ken Roczen’s title defence is already going wrong after he qualified down in 24th position, ten seconds slower than fastest qualifier Eli Tomac.
Roczen didn’t ride during press day on Thursday but the injury, rumoured to be a problem with his back, is clearly more serious than everyone predicted. Quite how long Roczen will be able to stick the pace and the pain remains a mystery but it looks like he is going to be playing catch-up already after round one.
It would be another blow to the RCH team after Roczen got injured early in supercross while leading the championship and means a big investment with not so much return in 2015 for the Hart/Carmichael collaboration who want to badly to win a US championship.
The year that promised so much for Roczen and RCH is quickly turning into a nightmare due to injuries.
