Ken Roczen Grabs a Big Win at Supercross Round 15

It’s been sometime since Ken Roczen has seen the top spot on the podium in Supercross. Roczen took a big and much needed victory on Sunday night’s Supercross Round 15 in Utah.

When the gate dropped for the 450 main event, Cooper Webb shot in front of the field. Just a few laps later, Roczen made his move for the lead. Webb was the Round 14 winner during Wednesday’s event. Roczen wasn’t going to let Webb have another victory. Roczen didn’t have it easy on the track. The Red Bull Honda rider posted to his social media, he was fighting a battle with shingles. Through all of the pain of a 20-minute moto plus 2 laps, Roczen got much needed points to inch closer to leader Eli Tomac. Tomac still managed a 3rd place finish with Webb in 2nd.

The Western Regional Lites riders were back on the track. Dylan Ferrandis had the holeshot. Austin Forkner began working his way to the front cutting under Christian Craig, who was running in second. Forkner than ran down Ferrandis, making an aggressive contact pass which temporarily sent Ferrandis off-track. Ferrandis regained himself but was only able to finish 2nd after Forkner took the victory.
