KEN ROCZEN CRASHES HARD | BREAKS HAND IN SAN DIEGO (UPDATES)
KEN ROCZEN POST SURGERY FEBRUARY 17, 2018
Ken Roczen commented on his surgery– “Once again there was a lot going on here. Shattered hand, dislocation of all metacarpals and torn ligaments. Been in A LOT of pain since the surgery. 🙄
Sometimes we get tested in life. We take care of this sh*t come back and try this again.”

UPDATE–Ken Roczen’s comments after the race: I’m completely devastated with the outcome of tonight. The first thing I thought about on the ground was my team and all the hard work we’ve put in to get back to this point. I came into the corner with good speed, got on the gas, and then caught a ton of traction in the rut, lost my balance, and whisky-throttled the bike into [Cooper] Webb. My arm went in between his wheel and swingarm. We’ve already made the necessary calls to Dr. Viola and are going to get everything fixed up so I can get back out there as soon as possible.”
Ken Roczen’s retaliation on Cooper Webb cost him big time at the San Diego Supercross main event in Petco Park. It is obvious Kenny did not go for the jugular, he just went for an aggressive pass on Cooper. It looked as if he caught an edge and got a whole lot of whisky throttle that launched him into the factory Yamaha rider.
Ken Roczen posted this photo on his Instagram: “Just want to forget about this weekend. Surgery on Friday on my hand. Will give an update as soon as i get a ct scan. Dunlop tires hook up great! Might be able to be back pretty quick. Will know more soon.” –Ken Roczen
Ken Roczen Injury Update: After initial evaluation by the Alpinestars Mobile Medical Unit here at the San Diego Supercross, Roczen has suffered a fracture to the second metacarpal in his right hand after his run-in with Cooper Webb.
Cooper Webb rode Ken Roczen high in a corner at the 2018 San Diego Supercross round, then Kenny came after him in the next corner and lost control taking them both out of the race. Kenny got his arm between the swingarm and wheel. Tough break for Roczen.
