The German rider, the current world champion in the discipline, has secured victory in the first race of the 2023 Supercross World Championship in Birmingham, United Kingdom, using Galfer brake products on his Suzuki.
Ken Roczen, from Pipes Motorsport, has had an excellent start in the WSX World Championship in Birmingham. In the British Grand Prix, the first of the 2023 season, Roczen has won the first and third heats, as well as setting the fastest lap. In total, he has earned 69 points, granting him the overall victory in the Grand Prix. This puts Ken in the lead of the championship standings in the premier 450cc category after the first of the six races that make up the championship.
Ken Roczen and his team rely on the oversized ø280mm “Disc Wave®” fixed discs and the sintered Racing G1396R brake pads from Galfer to achieve efficient and precise braking, essential aspects in this demanding discipline of competitive motorcycle racing. These high-quality components deliver optimal performance in every brake, enabling Roczen to control his bike with precision in corners and critical moments of the race. Trust in Galfer’s braking system is a key factor in Ken Roczen’s success in the Supercross World Championship.
In the same category, notable performances from two Galfer representatives should be highlighted: Frenchman Gregory Aranda (Team GSM) in 9th position and American Kevin Moranz (Honda Nils WSX) in 10th position. Both riders have shown great ambition by improving their performance throughout the Grand Prix.
In the SX2 category, three Galfer riders have started the Supercross season on a positive note. American Kyle Peters (Honda Nils WSX) finished close to the podium in 5th position, Frenchman Maxime Desprey (Team GSM) in 6th position, and his teammate Jace Owen (Team GSM) in 9th position.
The second race of the WSX season will take place in Singapore on September 30, 2023.
