Red Bull KTM
’s Ken Roczen
has done it again. The rookie 450 class rider swept this past weekend’s round six of the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross
Championships at the RedBud
National in Buchanan, MI, with both moto wins and the overall victory. This result marks the second time that Roczen has swept a 450 Motocross round this year, and it’s also his fourth overall victory for the season.
“It feels so good to get the win here,” Roczen said. “It’s a great feeling to finish a race and not be tired. It really allows you to have fun out there and that is what I was able to do today.”
Joining Roczen on the overall podium at RedBud
was GEICO Honda
’s Eli Tomac in second, thanks to fourth- and second-place moto finishes. Tomac only just returned to racing after being sidelined with a broken collar bone, but at the previous round in Tennessee
his debut ride in the 450 class handed him third-place overall. He stepped it up further at RedBud
to finish in the runner-up spot.
"Today went even better than last weekend in Tennessee
," Tomac said. "Hopefully, I will turn this progress into a first place next event. We made a few changes for the second moto, and we are extremely close to the bike being fully dialed in. I can't wait to be battling for first when that happens."
Rounding out the overall podium at RedBud
was Roczen’s Red Bull KTM
teammate Ryan Dungey
. Three was the magic number for Dungey at RedBud
, having finished third in both motos and third overall for the day.
“The track is really deep and I got sprayed a lot which made it really hard to see,” Dungey said. “I needed to make the pass on (Trey) Canard quicker like Kenny (Roczen) was able to do but I lost a lot of time not making that pass.”
