Ken Roczen heading for hand surgery

Ken Roczen had been making a great return to top level Supercross competition this year after being ruled out of season 2017 with massive injuries to his left arm.

After a terrifying crash which saw the right arm get caught between the swingarm and the spinning wheel of Cooper Webb’s Yamaha during round six of the AMA Supercross Championship the 23-year old German is now heading for surgery on what was his fully fit and functioning arm.

Roczen put the image above out on Instagram with the following quote.
