2/28/2012 - Tickle Takes the Next Steps at Atlanta SX

 

Irvine, Calif. (February 25, 2012) – At the sold out Georgia Dome in Atlanta, Ga., More than 70,000 fans watched Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki’s Broc Tickle who had a great heat race, but trouble on the first lap of the main event forced him to a 16th place finish.

Making the Next Step

 

Tickle has yet to have a result that truly reflects his determination and speed. Saturday night was looking to be a turning point for him as he was fast in practice and got a great start in his heat race. Tickle fought for his position in the heat and finished a comfortable fifth. In the main event, Tickle rocketed his KX450F out of the very inside gate for what looked to be the holeshot, but would get pinched off before the line. Moments later a rock wedged its way into his rear brake, making it useless for the rest of the race. Tickle tried to adapt to racing with no rear brake and pushed through to finish 16th.

 

“I felt a lot better on the bike tonight, so what I’m taking away from tonight is not my result,” said Tickle. “Based on how I rode before the mishap and how comfortable I was feeling on the bike, my confidence is high especially with the team working so hard.  I want a good finish so bad; a good result could turn things around for me, so I hope to get a good start and ride like myself next week. This week I’m going to take a day and have some fun on the bike, loosen up, and assure I’m feeling good and fresh for next weekend.”
