Roczen Provides Update On Nashville Injury

On Sunday morning, Ken Roczen provided an update on the injuries he sustained during his main event crash at round 14 of Monster Energy AMA Supercross at Nissan Stadium in Nashville, Tenn., on Saturday night. 

The No. 94 Suzuki rider took a brutal hit just before the midpoint of the 20-minute main event when his bike malfunctioned coming off a triple jump, heading into the whoop section. 

Roczen explained further in a social media post, saying, “We are doing some investigation as my shock body only had about 3h on it and we have never seen it malfunction like that. It wasn’t a seal or anything. The bottom cap/housing or whatever you want to call it completely exploded.” 

Upon initial evaluation, Roczen was diagnosed with knee, ankle and toe injuries — but nothing broken. He noted that he’ll be undergoing additional MRI’s on Monday after having X-ray’s done at the track on Saturday night.

“I thought bull riding would be more fun,” he quipped in his post. “What a bummer. It was shaping up to be a good battle. But once again you can’t take a ol’ German oak out just like that. We’ll be back. I just don’t know when yet.”
