8/12/2012 - Tickle Back on the Box at Southwick with a 3rd Overall!

 

Irvine, Calif. (August 12, 2012) –. In the 450 class, teammate Broc Tickle rode skillfully throughout the day to earn his second podium of the season, landing in third place with a 6-4 result.

 

Back on the Box

Tickle came out swinging at Southwick and earned the fastest qualifying time of the day aboard his KX450F. In Moto 1, he got a good start and rode to a sixth-place finish. In the second moto, he came off the gate in 10th position and starting picking off riders. He was able to move through the pack to finish fourth and earned third overall on the day. The podium marked Tickle’s second career podium finish outdoors in the 450 class. He currently sits fifth in the championship standings.

“Practice went really great,” said Tickle. “I ended up setting the fastest lap time on the track so I earned the first gate pick. Overall, I think the track was brutal. You had to stand up a lot more than usual and try to carry your momentum around the track because as soon as you lost it, it was difficult getting back in a rhythm in that sand. The track conditions were difficult because it was a combination of deep sand with a hardpacked base. You want to set your bike up for the bumps, but you also have to set it up for the hard stuff, so you have to find a happy medium. We made a few changes to the bike between motos and it really worked out. I’m happy to be on the podium again. Now we’re going to head back home and put in some more hard work before we head to Unadilla and try to repeat.”
