Ken Roczen is a professional Supercross and Motocross racer that holds numerous championship wins. Ken is a strong, determined, and fighting person. Considering how he has gone through certain wrecks the past couple years, he has fought through it and is continuing to go back out to race professionally. 

In 2017, Ken Roczen had just won his second Motocross championship after finishing second the season previous to this one. Then he joined the HRC Honda Factory Race Team and from there he would go on to race the 2017 season of Supercross. After having two wins in the beginning of the season, on Jan. 21, 2017, Roczen had been in third place pushing to get that third win in a row when he went to hit a triple, and his foot slipped off of the foot peg and he went crashing into the ground. This accident caused him to get a compound fracture to his left arm. He then missed the rest of the 2017 season. Roczen went through multiple surgeries on that left arm. 

The next season came in 2018, and Roczen was ready to make a come back. Roczen had made it through a lot of the season but then after a ways into it, he had another disaster. On Feb. 17, 2018, he had another crash when he went to make a pass on Cooper Webb coming into a corner. His bike caught too much traction and he went off the bike and his arm went into Webbs rear wheel. He then had to go through surgery and other operations to reconstruct the shattered bones and torn ligaments. This shows that Roczen really is a tough rider and he has a lot of determination to keep doing what he loves in the future.
