Roczen remains positive after Salt Lake City Disaster.

Posted:

Ken Roczen is remaining positive after he had the unthinkable happen at the penultimate round of the 2013 Monster Energy AMA Supercross when he crashed in both the heat and LCQ and did not qualify for the main event.

Roczen who headed in to the round with a clear 20 point lead in the 250SX West Coast regional championship, was fourth off the start in the second heat but collided with another rider in the second corner.

He recovered in dead last but quickly moved up five positions before he ran off the track after trying to avoid a down rider in the whoops.

He then pulled off the track and returned to the pits in order to save energy for the last chance qualifier leaving JDR/J-Star/KTM rider Malcolm Stewart to take his first heat victory this season.

The German rider had a great jump out of the gate in the LCQ before another rider came clear across the start straight and took out a group of riders including Roczen.

He quickly recovered but had to come through the entire pack as he pushed toward the top two. Ken gave it his all in the four remaining laps but was two bike lengths short of qualifying for his main event when they passed the flag, Only the top two from the LCQ advance to the final.

‰ÛÏI‰Ûªm really disappointed,‰Û
