When you visualize the elite class of today’s motocross riders, Ken Roczen is near the top. From being one of the  youngest riders to win a 250 World Championship to his 2014 AMA 450 National Championship, Roczen has proven his skill time and time again. While he can get flashy, Roczen is a more reserved whipper at events in comparison to riders like Trey Canard, Josh Grant and Chad Reed. It doesn’t negate from the fact that he can throw a good one when he wants to. While he had a slow start to the Supercross season, K-Roc still had more wins than any other rider not named Ryan Dungey. With his impressive performance the last few races (excluding that crash/mudpie splat in Las Vegas), Roczen has a lot of momentum going into the AMA 450 Nationals.
