5/23/2011 - Broc Tickle Ends Up 9th Overall at Hangtown

 

Irvine, Calif. (May 23, 2011) – Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki’s Broc Tickle overcame a crash in the first moto to finish 13-7 and ninth overal at the AMA Motocross Championship season opener at Hangtown MX in Rancho Cordova, Calif.

Transition

Reigning AMA Supercross Lites, Western Region champion Tickle started the motocross season showing his perseverance in both motos. In the first moto, he was making his way through the field when he went down, pushing him back to 24th. He rode hard to the end to finish 13th and improved even more in the second moto with a seventh to finish ninth overall.

 

“I felt good all day, unfortunately my results didn’t show it,” said Tickle. “When I feel good, but have a tough day, it makes me even more motivated to go out the next week and make up for that last race. I’m glad we got the first race out of the way and I’m looking forward to Texas.”

 

Hot and Humid

The next race on the circuit brings the riders to Texas. Typically, the race at Freestone Raceway is always hot and humid, which challenges the racers physically and mentally to get through 30 minutes plus two laps.

 

“I’m not sure why, but I’ve always had fun racing in Texas,” said Tickle. “When it’s hot and humid, it really shows who is in shape. I got on the podium there last year and I want to do it again this year.”
