| February 12, 2018

Ken Roczen Suffers Broken Hand – Honda HRC confirmed that Ken Roczen suffered a broken bone in his hand when he and Cooper Webb got together and crashed during the main event at the San Diego Supercross. Roczen was evaluated by the Alpinestars Mobile Medical Unit, where it was determined that he has a fracture to the second metacarpal in his right hand. Roczen will visit his physician on Monday for further evaluation, but surgery has already been scheduled with Dr. Randy Viola (the surgeon who performed all of his procedures in 2017) on Friday, February 16.

“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.”

Roczen recently posted on his Instagram account: “Might be able to be back pretty quick. Will know more soon.”

“It was a rough night for Kenny,” said Honda HRC Team Manager Erik Kehoe. “Looking at the way his arm got sucked into the wheel though, it could’ve been worse, so we’re grateful it wasn’t. We’ll see what the doctor says about his hand this week and find out what the prognosis and recovery time is.”
