Moto Style Check: Roczen, Bogle and Anderson

Compare the distinct styles of three 250 kings as they pull tricks worthy of Cirque Du Soleil.
By Eric Wright

The SkyShot table at Unadilla is one of those jumps where whips are mandatory. Fans brave steep hills and the elements to one of the most remote locations on the track just to have a front row spot for the brief seconds that the riders fly by. It’s a showman’s dream jump, and luckily for us, the younger generation of moto ninjas cannot pass up a chance to wow the fans and potentially score a few phone numbers out of the deal.

Take a look and compare the distinct techniques of 250 aces Ken Roczen, Justin Bogle, and Jason Anderson as they throw down different types of performances.
