Does Ken Roczen come back and win in 2018?

After an injury like this, does he come back and win?
He's about to go in for one last surgery on his elbow.
Does he come back at all?

Hope he comes back, but wow, what an injury! Might be the ET3 route back - taking awhile to get to form. From the info Kroc is sharing on the web coming back would be huge. Ugly, ugly mess.

Sure hope so, would have made for some epic races this year between he and Tomac, once Eli got up to speed. But after hearing his doctor say the first priority was just saving the arm I don't have high hopes of him returning to that level at all.

We sure all hope he does. I really like his talent on bikes both on 2 bangers and 4 strokes. Remember Smith's CR250 where it was ripped by roczen?

from everything regarding his injury most people if they're able to use a fork or spoon its an accomplishment. that being said roczen isn't most people and he's working with the best sports medicine people on earth. hopefully he comes back and is able to ride like he did. the other side is how will he do mentally? as much as the body needs to adapt and adjust the mind will be the big one. he's a tough kid and hopefully he's able to mentally get past it. anyways, I'm not a Honda fan, personally hate the company for just buying riders once they start winning but I am a roczen fan so on that hope he gets back and runs up front 8)

Hmmm. He won't be back in 2018. Mayyyyyybe possible for Jan 2019. Yes he has had the best surgeons yada yada but his arm will never be the same. It is possible he will be able to adapt eventually but will he rise to the level he was at when he crashed is a big big question.

No Chance. Flipper gots no chance to even wipe his cornhole let alone win even a 250 novice race.
