After winning the first 450 moto at the 2019 Houston SX “Triple Crown” event, HRC / Honda’s Ken Roczen went down hard in the first turn of the second moto. The #94 got up lame, limped back to his bike and headed back to the pits after trying to ride one lap after the crash.
Kenny DNF’ed moto 2, but surprisingly the #94 did line up for the final moto of the three moto “Triple Crown”. Ken finished 8th in the final moto and his 1-21-8 score on the night gave hin 10th overall points for the Houston SX. A solid night considering the crash and DNF in moto 2.
Kenny posted this on Facebook this morning with that nasty pic of his big toe: “Bummer about yesterday. We had a good day all day. Started the day off by getting the pole position. I got the holeshot in the first main and put a 10-second gap between me and the field and got the W in that one. In the second main I went down on the start and felt a sharp pain in my ankle + my bike was really bent up so I DNF that one. Raced the 3rd main and managed to get an 8th. Thank you, everybody, for the support.”
