Red Bull KTM Factory rider Ken Roczen finished 2nd overall at the third round of the Monster Energy Supercross season in the 250SX class at Angel Stadium. Now three rounds into the series, Roczen sits 2nd overall in the class point standings.
Ken Roczen was up in the second 250SX heat where he earned a 2nd place start off the line. He wasted no time moving his KTM into the lead position after overtaking the number one spot a few corners into the race. Roczen went on to lead all six laps of the heat to claim his third consecutive heat race win of the season.
In the main event, Roczen had a great start and was sitting in 2nd position as the bikes rounded the first corner. He maintained that position staying on the rear wheel of the 1st place rider, Cole Seely, for the first half of the race. On lap nine, Roczen made a mistake allowing Eli Tomac to make a pass into 2ndplace. Two laps later, Roczen was able to reel in Cole Seely and make the pass back into the runner-up position. With three laps remaining, Roczen maintained his pace and rode a strong race to take home 2nd place.
