9/10/2012 - Broc Tickle Finishes 3rd at Lake Elsinore and Fifth Overall in the 2012 MX Championship!

 

Irvine, Calif. (September 9, 2012) – In the mecca of motocross, Southern California’s In the 450 class, Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki’s Broc Tickle finished the season out strong going 3-3 for third overall and finished sixth overall in the championship.

 

Finishing Strong

Tickle began his first season in the 450 class with high expectations of himself. He has made consistent progress throughout the year and finished the season battling for the podium in every moto. Tickle got his KX™450F off to a great start and made his way into third within the first couple laps. From there he separated himself from those behind him and stayed on par with the leaders to the checkered. Moto 2 was almost a carbon copy, as he got another good start and rode alone in third. Tickle finished fifth overall in the championship standings.

“I was really looking forward to this round since it’s five minutes from my house,” said Tickle. “I felt really awesome today. I got decent starts and was able to make quick passes in the first lap. Once I was into third, the leaders were gone so I just tried to play it smart. It was really hot during that first moto, but I came back strong in the second moto. I ride really well at tracks with theses dry rutted conditions. I made a lot of progress this year and it’s really motivating going into 2013.”

 

Fresh Track

Although Lake Elsinore has had a motocross track for a number of years, no one had ever ridden the new layout and design of the newly created Lake Elsinore Motorposrts Park. At approximately 1.5 miles in length, Lake Elsinore is the longest course on the circuit and produced the longest lap times we saw all year. Laptimes were almost three minutes in length compared to the usual two-minute tracks.
