As the The Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship heads into the back half of their season, they take on Washougal MX Park for Round 7 of the 2021 schedule and NBC Sports will have all the action from Washougal, Washington this Saturday, July 24.

Round 7 will see an end to Adam Cianciarulo’s championship hopes as he prepares for surgery to fix his ulnar nerve. Last week he crashed in Moto 1 at Spring Creek and did not mount his Kawasaki for Race 2.

“I lose what feels like most of the strength in my right hand gradually as I’m riding,” Cianciarulo said on Instagram. “I’ve tried to be smart and do my best—but at this point the only logical decision is to get it fixed. It’s a relatively simple procedure, but it will put me out for the rest of this season. This has been difficult, mentally and physically.”

Washougal was not run in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but the last time the series was there Dylan Ferrandis swept both Motos and scored the overall win in the 250 class. Current points’ leader Justin Cooper finished third overall.

In the 450 class, Eli Tomac was perfect with an overall win after sweeping the motos. Ken Roczen (2-3) in second and Marvin Musquin (5-2) rounded out the podium.

ANAHEIM, California – Ken Roczen will make the move from HRC Honda to H.E.P. Motorsports with the Progressive Ecstar Suzuki team, ending a long and eventful offseason that saw his split from his longstanding team after he committed to running World Supercross (WSX).

“H.E.P. Motorsports is thrilled to announce that the team has signed Ken Roczen as its premier rider for the 2023 season,” the team announced on Instagram. “Former AMA Motocross champion Roczen will be aboard a Suzuki RM-Z450. Roczen, who won his most recent championship on a Suzuki, will be reunited with the brand and bring his exciting style, determination, and grit back to the RM Army.

“Ken Roczen will compete in the upcoming 2023 Supercross and Motocross Championship series which is set to start on January 7 at Anaheim Stadium in Southern California.”

For Roczen, it is a return to the bike of his youth and on which he had some of his greatest professional success.

“This thing has been going on for weeks and weeks and weeks in the making, but there was so much uncertainty,” Roczen told NBC Sports during Monster Energy Supercross Media Sessions. “It was a very unique situation. I just finally signed two nights ago, so it’s really only legit once the ink hits the paper. It’s been in the works for a long time, but there were just a lot of questions and a lot of input from a lot of other teams too.

“Good things take time, and I’m okay with that. I grew up riding Suzuki. Ot’s like a homecoming. It’s a special feeling”

Roczen won the 2016 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship on a Suzuki before making the move to Honda. That year he won nine of 12 Nationals and finished no worse than second as he easily outpaced Eli Tomac by 86 points. He finished third in his next Pro Motocross outing in 2018 after sitting out the outdoor season in 2017.

“I am beyond excited to reconnect with Suzuki for the 3rd time in my career. We’ve had a lot of success in the past and I’m looking forward to seeing what we can accomplish together in our future.” Roczen said in the Instagram post.
