6/19/2012 - Hard Work Pays Off for Broc Tickle with a 2nd Overall at Budds Creek

 

Irvine, Calif. (June 18, 2012) – Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki’s Broc Tickle captured the first outdoor overall podium of his career aboard his KX™450F, landing in second place with a 2-2 moto score.

 

Tickle was looking forward to the series heading toward his hometown on the East coast. With his family and friends in attendance at Budds Creek, Tickle rode to the best finish of his career aboard his KX450F. In the first moto he got a good start and came around the first lap in fourth position. He quickly began moving toward the front and within the first ten minutes of the race he claimed the number two spot, where he would eventually finish the race. In Moto 2, Tickle got another great start and quickly pulled into third behind the leaders. He kept a tight pace on the leaders for the first five laps before making the pass for second. Despite encountering more than ten lappers before the end of the race, Tickle was able to navigate the congested track to finish second and earn the runner-up spot on the podium. The second-place finish advanced Tickle from eighth to sixth in the championship points standings.

“This weekend went great,” said Tickle. “It was awesome to get my first outdoor podium with my parents in the stands. They live out here on the East coast so this is a hometown race for me. We have a two week break coming up so I am going to use that opportunity to train even harder. The first week I will hit it pretty hard with cardio and try to get my endurance up. The second week I’ll taper down a little, take a day off and maybe head to the beach. I just want to keep having fun and getting on the podium. Whenever I struggled in the past I always just kept my head down and kept working hard. When you have a day like this it really makes you feel good because you know your hard work is paying off.”

 

 

Summer Break

Next weekend, the 2012 AMA Pro Motocross Championship series will take a much needed break, allowing both racers and teams two weekends off to rest and recoup. The series will reconvene in three weeks on July 7, 2012, at Round 6 of the series at Red Bud MX Park in Buchanan, Mich.
