Ram Truck Racer Broc Tickle Ninth Overall At Southwick


Historic Southwick Motocross 338 in New England was the site of Round 6 of the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship where warm temperatures and the unique sandy track surface presented a stern challenge for riders at Saturday’s Moto-X 338 National. RCH Racing’s Broc Tickle finished 11th in Moto 1 and 10th in Moto 2 for an overall finish of ninth. He moved up one spot to eighth in the 2013 450MX rider point standings.

Commonly known as ‘The World’s Fastest Sandbox’, success at Southwick is all about stamina and carrying momentum in the pure sand. Finding the right racing line is imperative. Ride too aggressive and Southwick’s notorious big holes and long ruts will devour a bike.

Tickle (No. 20 Ram/Sycuan Casino/RCH Racing/Suzuki RM-Z450) posted the ninth best time overall during timed qualifying practice. James Stewart was quickest in the first practice session while Ryan Villopoto was tops in the second.

Tickle scored 11th in Moto 1 after fighting back from a log-jammed first turn that dropped him to 18th after Lap 1. Tickle used patience to gain five positions by mid-race and collect another two the back-half of the moto, just missing a top 10.

“I was18th on the first lap after a bunch of guys went down in front of me,” Tickle said. “I worked my way up to 12th, then 11th but couldn’t crack the top-10. We just lost too much time on the first lap and let the guys pull too much ground on us. I felt good. I felt strong. We made some changes on the bike for the second moto and that seemed to work.”

Ryan Dungey was the Moto 1 winner, edging Andrew Short by 0.634 seconds with Justin Barcia third.

In Moto 2, the Tony Berluti-tuned Suzuki started 11th and Tickle again found himself in a torrid battle for track position heading into Turn 1. He was 12th after Lap 1 and broke inside the top 10 on Lap 3. The Michigan native used the next 23 minutes – plus two laps – to race as high as eighth before falling two spots with under 10 minutes remaining in the moto. Tickle took the checkered flag 10th.

“I gave it everything I could today,” Tickle added. “This place is tough on bikes and tougher on riders. We were up there battling for eighth place but just lost it a little bit on one lap. That cost us a couple of positions. I raced as hard as I could today. I gave it everything.

“I thought that I settled into a really good rhythm in the second moto. My lap times felt consistent on the Suzuki; I almost cracked the two-minute range. We made some adjustments to the bike after the first moto and they helped. Overall, we were able to get ninth overall today and move up to eighth in the rider standings. We’ll just keep getting after it and trying to improve every week.”

Villopoto won Moto 2 with Dungey second while Dungey claimed overall honors.

The 2013 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship heads to the RedBud National in Buchanan, Mich. next Saturday afternoon for Round 7.
