If there is one guy that will dethrone Ryan Dungey as champion it’s this guy, Ken Roczen. Watching him ride so aggressively in Las Vegas at the Monster Energy Cup was super impressive. Ken has more talent in his pinky toe than most guys lining up on the gate in a Main Event. He is happy with his switch, along with getting paid a boat load of money will make Ken hard to beat in 2017, in my opinion. Watching him ride a bone stock 2017 CRF450R in Alabama at the Honda introduction was something to behold. You might not believe it when he says, “this is the best bike that I have ridden”, but after watching him ride a stocker you can see it is really true. Look for Ken to make an impression early on in the series on his rivals to shatter their confidence.
