Austin Forkner
Farm Boy
Austin Forkner started his racing motocross career in 2003 at the age of five. In his first year racing, he won the Show-Me Fall Series. Later on, he continued racing in his home state until 2005, when he entered his first amateur national event at Ponca City, finishing top 10 in either 50cc 7-8 classes.

Racing and being competitive “runs” in Austin’s veins. His father is a smooth motocross rider, and his mother is a barrel racer on horses, making it only natural for them to support Austin. His parents were Austin’s primary support through 2010. In that same year, Austin was the only youth rider to win TWO National Titles at Loretta’s. Since his first AMA National title at Loretta's, Austin has been on the Kawasaki Team Green bikes as a factory supported rider.

In 2015, Austin set his sights on the pro ranks and made a plan on how he would transition to professional racing. He made his last performance as an amateur racer at the Loretta Lynn National Championships in August 2015 with 2 victories. Then he started working on his pro program. In September, in his first pro race, he finished 4th behind 3 seasoned veterans of the sport. In January he raced 2 Arenacross races winning the second one in Greensboro. Austin wrapped up his amateur career with wins at Daytona and Freestone.

Ken Roczen
FOX Moto-X LAB Athlete
Ken Roczen joined the Red Bull Teka KTM Factory Racing Team at the beginning of the 2011 season. Already known as one of the world’s hottest MX2 properties, the talented lad from Thüringen in Germany made his mark in the world of motocross by riding his KTM 250 SX-F factory bike to an end-of-season triumph.

Ken wrapped up the world championship season, winning eight of the 15 round GPs outright and taking second place on four occasions. Showing his fighting spirit, he vaulted back from a slight two-GP dip midseason, proving unstoppable right up until he secured the world title at home in Germany.

In 2011, Ken also rode selected races in the AMA SX Lites (West Coast) competition for the Red Bull Teka KTM factory team in the USA, under the leadership of Roger DeCoster. Despite travelling across the Atlantic, Ken managed to take his first SX Lites podium at Anaheim 2, where he finished third and secured his first SX Lites victory in Las Vegas at the close of the season.

In 2012 Ken raced full-time in the USA for the Red Bull KTM Factory Team and added to his skillset under the firm hand of DeCoster, a legend in the sport and a team manager of huge reputation and credentials.

And such tutelage obviously paid off, in 2013 Ken raced all the way to victory, becoming AMA Western Regional 250SX Champion. In 2014 he moved to the premier class in the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship and, of course, won. After a transition year with the RCH Racing Suzuki team in 2015, Roczen took 2016 by storm winning multiple Supercross races and claiming the 2016 450 AMA Pro Motocross Championship with 9 of a possible 12 overall victories.

At the end of 2016, it was announced that Roczen will join the highly coveted Factory Honda HRC team, and has his eye on more titles in 2017 and beyond.
