3/27/2012 - Consistency For Tickle Continues at Toronto SX

 

Irvine, Calif., (March 25, 2012) – Monster Energy AMA Supercross headed to the Great White North on Saturday night. Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki’s Broc Tickle finished inside the top-ten for the third straight week, taking eighth place.

 

Consistency at Last

 

This season Tickle has been up and down the results page, but for the third-consecutive week he finished in the top-ten. Toronto’s deep ruts seemed to suit him as he rode a solid heat race to finish fourth and battled for the full 20 laps to finish eighth, despite a crash.

 

“This weekend I tried something a little different and had a plan for practice,” said Tickle. “I felt really comfortable on the bike and I think that showed in the heat race. In the main I was as high as seventh, crashed back to 11th and was still able to come back to eighth, so I’m happy with how I rode.”

 

Track Conditions

 

Due to Canada’s climate, Toronto’s dirt often has been difficult for the organizers and riders to manage. In years past, frost would start to thaw within the dirt creating a very soft and wet surface. This year however, the dirt held up much better and only deteriorated in certain areas of the track. The soft, deep ruts still played a large part in the outcome of the race.
