7/8/2012 - Tickle Finishes 6th at Red Bud

 

Irvine, Calif. (July 8, 2012) – The temperature may have reached triple digits on Saturday in Buchanan, Mich., Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki’s Broc Tickle rode two strong motos to finish sixth overall.

 

Input = Output

Tickle has been working extremely hard in between races and over the two-week break and felt he made some great strides. He battled within the top five in both motos after getting impressive starts aboard his KX450F. He and Rattray found each other in both motos and were running a blistering pace. A crash in the second moto dropped Tickle to 15th, which he then fought his way back up to ninth. His 5-9 moto score gave him sixth overall and Tickle now sits fifth in the points standings.

“The track was gnarly today,” said Tickle. “It was rough, but like a different rough with bumps everywhere and no rest at all. I struggled to get a flow going in the first moto and wore myself out a bit, but towards the end I started settling down and starting making ground. We made a couple bike changes the second moto and I felt much better, but a small tip over spoiled that. Today was all about setting your lines up and flowing around the bumps.”

 

Halfway Done

Round 7 takes the championship to Millville, Minn., which is another track that riders look forward to every year. The humidity and track conditions should be similar to this past round in RedBud and the racing should be just as exciting.
