1/30/2015 - RCH Suzuki Factory Racing’s Broc Tickle Will Miss Anaheim #3


RCH Suzuki Factory Racing’s Broc Tickle will unfortunately be a non-starter at Anaheim; after crashing on the same ‘triple’ last weekend and being forced to pull-out – a heavy crash that necessitated as trip to the nearby Sutter Eden Medical Center where he was examined, released and cleared to travel home with the team – RCH team owners Carey Hart and Ricky Carmichael have chosen to park the #20 Suzuki RM-Z450 this weekend while Tickle recovers from a back injury sustained. The injury, incidentally, is unrelated to the one he suffered last year at the Toronto Supercross.

“I’m disappointed that I’ll miss this weekend but, given my recent experience with back injuries, I’ve learned to take the doctor’s advice,” explained Tickle, who slipped from seventh to 12th in the point’s standings. “I don’t want turn a one-race injury into something bigger. It should be a pretty quick recovery and I can still do everything training-wise, except for riding. I need to stay off the bike for five-to-seven days. After that, I should be ready to go for San Diego in two weeks.”

Roczen, whose scary impact with the face of the same triple didn’t take quite the physical toll on him as it did his team-mate, added: “I’m really bummed for Broc not being able to race this weekend. I know how hard he’s worked, but the good thing is that he won’t be out for very long.”
