7/15/2012 - Broc Tickle Overcoming Hurdles at Millville

 

Irvine, Calif. –Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki’s Broc Tickle finished sixth overall with a 12-5 result.

 

Tickle has shown that when he has two solid motos, he can challenge for the podium. While running fifth in the first moto, Tickle was catching the leaders until a get-off threw him over the bars in the whoops. Never one to be defeated, Tickle came back charging in the second moto to finish fifth. He knows he has the capability to be up front battling, and continues to push himself and his KX450F to get there. Tickle sits fifth overall in the points standings.

“It was frustrating to have a crash first moto,” said Tickle. “My times were fast all day and I was starting the catch the leaders. I regrouped for the second moto and came out around 10th, made some clean passes and finished the race in fifth. Man, the track was brutal today and tough on the body. I want to be on the podium again, and I think with some good starts I should be there. We made some changes to the forks this week and they were definitely a positive.”

 

 

Millville Sand Whoops

The infamous sand whoops of Spring Creek were extremely challenging this year. The longest and gnarliest set of whoops of the season, this year the riders claimed them to be bigger and deeper than years past. A rider could easily lose or gain multiple positions in that section alone. Both suspension and momentum were needed to tackle the whoop monster.

 

The Battle Continues

Next weekend, Round 8 of the AMA Pro Motocross Championship brings Monster Energy Kawasaki to the Northeast woods of Washougal, Wash. The picturesque track is settled in the trees and known for some of the most punishing roost. Baggett leads the 250 class, while the rest of the team continues to work on climbing up the points standings.
