Trivia Question: (Answer Below) RCH Racing’s Broc Tickle made his first professional Monster Energy AMA Supercross start in the SX Lites Class at Toronto, finishing third. Who joined Tickle on the podium?

TONY BERLUTI (Lead Mechanic, No. 20 Broc Tickle Dodge/Sycuan Casino/RCH Racing/Bel-Ray/Suzuki RM-Z450)

Intensity: “One of the keys for the guys riding up front has been their intensity – the intensity for 20 laps. Last week, both Ryan’s (Villopoto and Dungey) intensity had to be top notch because Dungey was just beating on Villopoto all race. The intensity level for both riders was way up and that’s what you need at this 450SX Class level to win races.”

Adaptability to Different Tracks: “When you look at the guys leading the class right now, those guys have gotten better as the season progresses no matter what kind of track we race on. A key has been how you can adapt and get better every week. Toronto’s dirt will be different, riders must adapt.”

Training and Fitness: “The guys on top of the rider point standings are usually the strongest, the most physically fit guys out here racing. Their intensity level and ability to adapt each week is impressive. They’re also keeping the bike off the dirt. Typically, there are some guys that crash and you know at any point in time they’re going to grenade. They can go fast, but they’re going to grenade. The top guys right now are racing at a high level because they train at a high level. Stamina and fitness allows you to ride on the edge and that’s where you see guys who are fast get the speed out of their bikes. Training on the edge, sometimes over your head, helps you when you have to race that way on Saturday. When you train your butt off, you’re prone to make less mistakes because you’re strong.”

Marshmallows: “Toronto has typically been like a marshmallow. I’m not sure why. I don’t know if it’s the dirt or where they store the dirt. In the past, the track has been really, really soft…like a
marshmallow. The track gets really rutty, maybe the most rutted-up track that we race on all season. We’ll see what happens tomorrow and how they prepare it. Broc (Tickle) likes the kind of soft dirt that ruts up, so we’ll see how it looks.”

Trivia Answer: Christophe Pourcel (winner) and Austin Stroupe (runner-up).
