KTM welcomes Ken Roczen to the team’s FIM MX2 Motocross and AMA Supercross (SX) lineup. His opening motorcycle race of the AMA Supercross (SX) season will be at Anaheim 1 in Jan. of 2011.
Roczen first sat on a motocross bike at just two and a half years old and rode his first motorcycle race at three. Born in 1994, he first entered the MX racing record book in Germany when he won the German Outdoor Motocross Junior competition in 2000 and 2001.
Roczen won the ADAC MX Junior Cup in 2006 and was second in the Junior Worlds in the same year. One year later he claimed the Junior World championship title and was firmly on the radar of the talent spotters for senior competition.
“Kenny” as he is affectionately known at home in Germany went on to capture the Supercross title in Dortmund Germany in 2009 and earned the title of “Prince of Dortmund”.
Even racing only part of the season because of the age limit restriction in 2009, he still finished in fifth place.
Then in 2010, he turned up the gas to take 10 FIM Motocross victories in the MX2 world championship to finish second behind Marvin Musquin in what was a closely fought battle right down to the final FIM MX2 races.
