2/7/2012 - Tickle Nails 10th at Anaheim 2

 

Irvine, Calif., (February 5, 2012) – The fireworks and explosions are always bigger the second time around at Angel Stadium for Monster Energy AMA Supercross, as Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki’s Broc Tickle finished10th in the main event.

 

Tickle has shown improvement each week thus far in the season and achieved his second top-ten finish Saturday night in Anaheim. In the heat race, he rode to a strong fifth-place finish, giving him a good gate pick for the main event. When the gate dropped for the main, Tickle rounded the first corner mid-pack and stayed in tenth position for nearly the entire race. He stayed consistent throughout the full 20 laps and once again proved he has the speed to be up front with the leaders.

 

“I’ve been building my confidence weekend by weekend and know I can ride better than I did,” said Tickle. “I’m happy with my finish tonight and we’re still improving, which is all that matters. We race to win, so I will keep working and making my way to the front.”

 

Pretty in Pink

 

This weekend the Monster Energy Kawasaki riders were sporting new pink riding gear in support of Breast Cancer Awareness month, but that did not change their focus or determination to ride their best.

 

Next weekend Monster Energy AMA Supercross heads to Qualcomm Stadium in San Diego, Calif., on Saturday, February 11, 2012 for Round 6.
