4/16/2015 - Tickle Optimistic About Santa Clara

 

CHINO HILLS, Calif. (April 16, 2015) –Broc Tickle comes into Santa Clara as the picture of consistency. Last weekend in Houston, Tickle earned his ninth straight and 11th overall top-10 finish of the season. In 55 career 450SX Class starts, Tickle has 36 top-10 showings. The solid ride powered the Holly, Mich., racer from ninth to eighth in points.
 
With the season coming to a rapid close, the 25-year-old veteran has a top-six championship finish in his sights. Coming into Saturday night, Tickle is just 11 points behind seventh-place Jason Anderson and 16 back from Blake Baggett in sixth.

“We had a pretty good day in Houston but I wish we had a little better finish to show for it,” said Tickle. “The bike was working really well but I got hung up with (Davi) Millsaps in the main and ended up eighth. The biggest thing I’m working on is trying to be better every week. The bike is fast enough and we make good adjustments throughout the day. I just need to put it all together and start finishing where we all deserve to finish. Everyone is working hard and hopefully we can make it pay off this weekend. It would be nice to string together three good races to close out the year and pick up a spot or two in points.”
  
“I think Broc is in a good place. He’s got plenty of speed and the bike responds well when those guys are making changes. We’re all expecting to see him on the podium before the end of the season.” 
 
Before the pits open and the gate drops at the track, Tickle will meet fans and sign autographs at Fremont Suzuki, Fri., April 17, from 6 – 7 p.m. Located just 16 minutes north of Levi’s Stadium, Fremont Suzuki has over 75 combined years of motorcycle industry experience within its staff and offers a professional service department with factory-trained technicians as well as a knowledgeable parts department and sales staff.
