RIDER QUOTES
“What a great opportunity. I’m really excited. I’m really impressed with how everything has worked out. It couldn’t have worked out better. To have Suzuki, Yoshimura, Dodge, Sycuan and Bel-Ray, all the mechanics, we’re in really good shape. I’ve been really impressed with everything. With Ricky (Carmichael) there and knowing the Suzuki like he does, his knowledge of the bike is amazing. Ricky being there for our test days and helping us out with our rides is awesome. I’m more prepared heading into this Supercross season than I’ve ever been. I’m looking forward to the season and really excited about the whole new team. It’s a fresh start. I’ve been putting in the work and have a solid program behind me.”
-- Josh Hill, No.75 Dodge/Sycuan Casino/RCH Racing/Bel-Ray/Suzuki Z450

“The Suzuki bike is a great base to start with. It has a really plush chassis and it turns really well. The Yoshimura factory Suzuki had so much development in it that when I first got on the bike, it was ready to race. Last year, we were on production bikes and it just wasn’t quite the level of equipment that we’re getting this year. Everything is hand-made, hand-built at Suzuki. It’s just a great bike.”
-- Broc Tickle, No. 20 Dodge/Sycuan Casino/RCH Racing/Bel-Ray/Suzuki Z450
