After winning the opening two races of the season and leading in the championship points, the crash and the win by Ryan Dungey that night dropped Roczen to third place overall 18 points behind new points leader Ryan Dungey.

With no immediate racing in his future it is hard to imagine Roczen remaining in contention for the season championship.
