Red Bull KTM Factory rider Ken Roczen announced today that he will race the 450SX class at round 10 of the Monster Energy AMA Supercross series this weekend at Daytona International Speedway.

Roczen, the current point leader in the West 250SX Supercross class, is excited to return to the series in the big bike class.

Having raced select 450SX class events last year, Roczen is looking forward to returning to the class for only this event for the 2013 season.

The young German rider will again race aboard the KTM 350 SX-F, a bike he feels is suitable to his size and capable of landing on the podium.

“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,” Roczen said. “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.”

Roczen will continue his West Coast Regional 250SX title chase in Seattle, WA, on 20 April.
