10/20/2015 - Tickle Has a Respectable Monster Energy Cup Ride


LAS VEGAS (October 20, 2015) Ė RCH Soaring Eagle/Jimmy Johnís/Suzuki Factory Racing rider Broc Tickle finished 12th overall Saturday nightís fifth running of the Monster Energy Cup at Sam Boyd Stadium but, despite not battling bar-to-bar at the front of the field, the Holly, Mich., rider felt good about his performance to close out the 2015 season.

ďAll in all, I think it was good,Ē commented Tickle following the event. ďI showed some intensity that I struggled with during Supercross. I feel like we made some improvements to the bike and that showed Saturday night. I was stoked with the way I was riding. Unfortunately, results-wise, it didnít show on paper but Iím still stoked with where Iím at. Ivan (Tedesco) has been testing for us the last two months and thatís made a big difference. Iím going to take a couple days off and then go overseas and race in Italy. Iíll stay on my feet and work on the things that I need to improve before Anaheim. Hopefully, weíll come in there with some speed and a little more confidence and Iíll be right there.Ē

Both team principles were on hand in Las Vegas, with Carmichael handling broadcast duties for FOX Sports and Hart keeping a close on the action from the pits.

I feel like RCH is headed down the right path as we prepare for the 2016 Monster Energy Cup season. Broc showed a lot of speed, especially during the last practice. The races didnít pan out for him like we wanted them to but his speed is good and his confidence is right where it needs to be. Heís going to be good.Ē

ďIt was a great night,Ē added Hart. ďWe won the opener of the season and the closer of the season. We have a lot to work on to get ready for next year but we made some big gains in 2015 and we ended the year on a good note. Now itís time to focus on getting Ken and Broc ready for A1 (Anaheim) in January. Itís important for us to keep our heads down and move forward.Ē
