7/7/2011 - Broc Tickle earned his third top-five finish of the season at Red Bud

 

Irvine, Calif. (July 4, 2011) – Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki’s Broc Tickle rode his Kawasaki KX™250F to a fifth overall in the 250 class at the sixth round of the AMA Motocross Championship series at Red Bud in Buchanan, Mich. Tickle earned his third top-five finish of the season.

 

Top-Five

Looking to bounce back from a tough weekend in Colorado, Tickle proved he was worthy of a top-five finish. He pushed his way into seventh in the first moto and made his way into fifth during the second moto to earn his third fifth-place finish.

 

“It’s nice to get a good finish after a bad overall last weekend,” said Tickle. “I feel like I’ve been getting better and better. Hopefully I can break inside the top-five next race. A podium would be nice, but I’ll focus on getting a good start and riding strong the entire moto.”

 

Hot and Humid

While the rain held off on race day, the skies opened up and stayed open all day Friday as the teams prepared for the weekend. The rain that soaked the ground on Friday only added to the humidity throughout the race day, but the track developed nicely throughout Saturday.

 

Weekend Off

After racing four weekends straight, the series will get a weekend break before heading to Spring Creek MX in Millville, Minn. The Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki riders will go for their seventh overall, while Villopoto looks to earn his second overall finish of the season.
