He must have used rear tire in the front?

Maybe that’s why he did a sighting lap. (get familiar with the tire). One of the only riders to do so.

I didn't read that as he's blaming his tire choice. I read it as he's blaming his health issues and it was compounded with a bad tire choice which made matters worse.

Ken Roczen: “These past two races obviously haven’t been the results that we needed to be in the fight. That doesn’t mean that we aren’t still trying. Sometimes you’re dealt a hand of cards that are completely out of your control, but we’re trying to make the smartest and quickest decisions to get through some of the health issues that keep coming up. My heat went well and I led a handful of laps until I got a flat. The boulders started popping up and I think I know right where the rock got me in the whoops. With the weather changing, we tried to make a tire decision that would give me the best chances of not having that same thing happen in the main, but that obviously didn’t work well. I’m not the type of guy that likes to roll around or is satisfied with a fifth- or 10th-place finish, but sometimes if that’s the best you can do for the night, you just have to except it for what it is. I can’t thank my team enough for being patient with me and for never wavering in their support. I know the sacrifices they’re making to be up here and all of the work they’re putting in to give me the best equipment and support, and I want to do better for them. I couldn’t be more grateful for them and I hope we can turn this around and be in a better position to put up a fight on Wednesday.”

Yeah reading that a couple of times - he didn’t come out and say his tire choice was the only reason. I feel for Ken but now is the time to say: it wasn’t my night and it’s back to the drawing board. Or something like that.

Forget all the little things and make the best of it. That finish had to crush his soul a bit. I hope he realizes he’s a champion and he has better days ahead of him. And if it doesn’t work out that’s ok too. It’s just motorcycle racing.

Did the team accidently install a slick tire thinking they were at a moto gp race? I mean this is the same team that forgot to run a high elevation engine tune.

Did he run a mousse in front to prevent flats? I thought they all ran mousse in the rear tire so that couldn't go flat if so.

Roczen thanks his team, says he has to do better, and folks want to bash him.

This is one of the greats who is obviously struggling. If you really follow the sport you know that Ken in the past was capable of rolling by Tomac and Webb and dropping them. After the injuries that’s not been the case. It’s damn shitty that folks here seem to want to celebrate his decline.

Eli and Cooper had an awesome battle Sunday. Imagine if Ken was part of it. It’s not a good thing that he wasn’t.

I’ve never heard of a Professional motocross rider using a mousse in a SX race. I have heard of a few riders using one in a MX race at a track with rocks that had the chance of getting flats, but by no means did all it most do it.

Almost all if not all factory teams use mousse in the rear tire for mx. Not so much if ever in sx
