The German appeared in 450-class races before, with positive results. At last year’s Seattle Supercross, Roczen took second while making an appearance in the 450 class.

Roczen will compete aboard a KTM SX-F 350 at Daytona, a bike suitable for his size.

Ken Roczen (Red Bull KTM SX-F450) says: “I really like to race the 350, it is fun to race against the other riders that I don’t get a chance to compete with regularly. I feel it helps my training and I like the Daytona race. I’m excited to race the 350 SX-F again and it is something I look forward to each year.”
