Realizing The Potential

Tickle entered the final round only two points ahead of second place and his task for the night was to make sure his Kawasaki KX250F was in front of the second-place points contender. After a tough start, Tickle methodically moved his way through the field, inching closer to where he needed to sit for the championship. On the final laps of the race, Tickle moved into second and finished exactly where he needed to be for the championship.

 

“I can’t even begin to say how I feel,” said Tickle. “This championship is something I’ve dreamed about since I was young and racing amateurs. The crazy part is that I always dreamed about winning the West Coast championship so it all doesn’t feel real. I don’t think it will hit me even when I see the number one plate on the door of the semi. I knew I could win the championship coming into the season, but I had to go through a lot to get here and I’m so thankful for everyone who helped me get it.”

 

Outdoors

With the supercross season now over, the Monster Energy Kawasaki and the Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki teams will be looking to a new season in the AMA Motocross Championship. The riders get a one-weekend break before returning to the start line at Hangtown MX in Sacramento, Calif.
