KEN ROCZEN DOMINATES UNADILLA

Saturday, 8/10/19 marked the 50th anniversary of the Unadilla MX National. The race weekend kicked off with legends of our sport completing a lap on historic bikes. Little did fans know; they were in for a historic performance from Ken Roczen. He dominated every second that he was on the track, set the fastest free practice time, clocked the fastest qualifying time by 3 seconds, and won both motos in convincing fashion.

Adam Cianciarulo would also put in a strong performance. Winning Moto 1 and finishing second in Moto 2 helped him maintain his points lead as the series heads into the final two rounds.

 

HIGH POINT 250 CLASS RECAP

In 250 Moto 1, Justin Cooper got the holeshot with Adam Cianciarulo in second. As the two battled for the lead, Cooper made a mistake in the rollers and went down. Adam would take the lead and attempt to gap the field. However, he would come under pressure from championship rival Dylan Ferrandis for the majority of Moto 1. Adam would eventually pull out a gap over the last three laps and take the win.

Dylan Ferrandis got the holeshot in the 250 Moto 2 while Adam sat just inside the top 5. Adam would make early passes on Alex Martin and Justin Cooper to work his way into second. Moto 2 quickly became a two-man race as Ferrandis and Cianciarulo matched best lap times and pulled away from the field. Adam put in several pass attempts but couldn't make them stick. Dylan would take the win with Adam a close second. The title contenders would tie on points, leaving Adam with a 28-point lead in the championship as the teams head into the last two rounds of the season.

 

HIGH POINT 450 CLASS RECAP

In 450 Moto 1, Justin Bogle got out to the early lead, Eli Tomac following close behind in second. Tomac would pass Bogle, taking the lead early. Shortly later, Ken would pass Bogle as well and immediately put pressure on Tomac.

Ken would get by Tomac with a dramatic pass as they came through the mechanic's section. He would go on to a dominant moto 1 win.

 

Ken came from behind in the 450 Moto 2. Starting just inside the top 10, with Marvin Musquin getting the holeshot, Ken made multiple passes on the first lap and closed in on Musquin. Marvin would make a mistake and open the door for Ken to take the lead. Once out front, Ken would open up a large gap and take another dominant win to cap the perfect day.

WW Ranch National Recap

This past weekend, the Lucas Oil Pro National series made its way to the WW Ranch in Jacksonville, Florida for the fifth round of the 2019 season. This would mark the first time the teams have visited WW for a national.

Hot and humid weather would greet the riders as they rolled into the Ranch. This would be the hottest race to date and would push riders to their limits. Ken Roczen came into the weekend tied for the series points lead in the 450 class while Adam Cianciarulo was holding a 26 point lead in the 250 division, trying to make it five wins in a row.

 

WW RANCH 250 CLASS RECAP

Adam Cianciarulo

In the first 250 Moto, Adam got out to a slow start rounding the first turn just inside the top ten. He would put his head down and work towards the front. Adam was able to pass his way to fifth by the time the checkered flag flew.

In the second 250 Moto, Adam Cianciarulo would get out to a good start and work his way into third early in the moto. He put in a strong ride and held off a late charge from Hunter Lawrence to secure a podium finish in Moto 2 and third overall on the day. He would lose eight points to Justin Cooper on the day and leave WW with a sixteen point lead in the series.

 

WW RANCH 450 CLASS RECAP

Ken Roczen

In the first 450 Moto, Ken Roczen got out to a good start and put on a charge for the lead. He would do battle with the reigning Supercross Champion Cooper Webb for several laps, eventually making the pass for the lead. He would hold the lead until the latter stages of the race when he would come under pressure from Marvin Musquin. Musquin was on a charge and would make the pass on Ken to take the win. Roczen would settle for second and a great shot at the overall with a good ride in moto two.

The heat was a key factor during the day of racing at WW. Ken Roczen was contemplating not racing the second moto as the energy he used in moto one left him drained and not sure he could complete Moto two. He would make his way the line knowing how important gaining championship points would be. Ken ran in the top five early in Moto 2. He would eventually crash and fall back in the pack. As the moto came to an end, he worked his way up to tenth, finishing the day sixth overall. Eli Tomac would win the second moto and regain the series points lead. Ken heads into round six at Southwick six points down on Tomac.
