Few riders outside of Travis Pastrana and Ricky Carmichael have shown this much promise and consistency at such a young age. Roczen's coaches and team members all agree he has something special.

"I've worked with many of the best riders in the past 10 years, but there is something different about Ken, the kid has that 'it' thing." said Chris Onstott, Roczen's manager at WMG.
