 JASON ANDERSONWe didn’t see much of Jason Anderson in Anaheim because he got DQ’ed after his run in with Vince Friese (Friese is always considered guilty, even when he isn’t because of his past record for dirty riding). Check out what happened between the two by clicking HERE

 ken roczenThis was the first race that Ken Roczen got off to a bad start. He started in 7th and worked up to 3rd by lap five. His teammate Cole Seely wasn’t making it easy for Roczen. Roczen started switching up his lines. In a rhythm section, is looked as if Roczen hit a small kicker which bottomed out his rear shock. It pogoed up, sling-shotting him off the bike. Roczen is known for setting up his shock with minimal rebound. The same thing happened to him at Monster Cup. Kenny ended up with a dislocated wrist, dislocated elbow and compounded radius bone in his wrist. Click HERE to watch the crash.
