RAM/RCH RACING QUOTES
BROC TICKLE (No. 20 Ram/Sycuan Casino/RCH Racing/Suzuki RM-Z450)
“I’m really excited. Redbud is my favorite track on the circuit so I’m looking forward to the race. And they always have the best and the most fans. It’s a very exciting race because everybody that’s watching is yelling and screaming, doing whatever they do while we’re racing. It’s a good atmosphere, a good vibe.”

DO YOU LIKE REDBUD BECAUSE OF THE ATMOSPHERE OR THE TRACK ITSELF? “Honestly it’s both. I mean the track is awesome, it has everything. The dirt is really good and the track has a lot of cool jumps; it has some off-cambers. It’s kind of sandy on some spots and harder packed on others. It just has a mixture of everything. The terrain is really nice too. The jumps are cool and the fans just top it off.”

ARE THE FANS RIGHT ON TOP OF YOU AND YOU CAN LITERALLY HEAR THEM CHEERING? “You can feel it. When you’re riding, you can feel the crowd. It’s kind of like what you feel in Supercross. There’s not many races in outdoors that you feel that. This is definitely one that does it.”

WE ARE HALFWAY THROUGH THE MOTOCROSS SEASON. WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS? IT SEEMS LIKE YOU’VE STEADILY IMPROVED SINCE THE BEGINNING OF THE SEASON. “Yeah definitely. At Southwick, I honestly gave it all I had the second moto, left everything on the table but my finish I wasn’t too pumped with. But I’m looking forward to Redbud. Last year I finished sixth overall because I had a bad moto.”

WHAT ARE SOME OF YOUR GOALS IN THE SECOND HALF OF THE SEASON? CAN YOU GET IN THE TOP-FIVE IN RIDER POINTS? “It’s not too far of a reach to get sixth but I think to get fifth right now something is going to have to happen where one of those guys will have to sit out. They’re probably a good 80 points ahead of me. For me, I just need to focus on being better each week and that will help me out in points. I know Tyla Rattray is the guy in front of me, so my main goal right now is try to get in front of him. I’m four points behind him and the next guy in front of him is (James) Stewart; I think he has quite an advantage on me (25 points).

“I just need to stay healthy, that’s the main goal for outdoors. It’s such a long season. If you’re not healthy, you’re not going to do well or you’re not going to even race. The main goal right now is to try to improve and stay healthy.”

WHAT KIND OF POSITIVE INFLUENCE DOES YOUR FRIENDS AND FAMILY PROVIDE WHEN YOU GO TO A TRACK? “It’s nice having family there, people you know at the races. It takes the edge off. I know a lot of people in that area. My wife’s family and a lot of people are coming to the race. It’ll be really cool to get out there, be around them and race in front of them.”

RICKY CARMICHAEL (Co-owner, RCH Racing)
REDBUD MAY BE THE BIGGEST OUTDOOR EVENT ON THE SCHEDULE, WHAT MAKES THIS MOTO SO GREAT AS A RIDER? THE BIG JUMPS? THE BIG CROWDS? “What makes RedBud so special is that it provides a rider everything he wants in moto. The jumps are huge, the corners are fast, and it’s just a fun and challenging track. It’s not overly hard, not too easy. It has everything a rider wants. It’s a fun weekend for the fans – huge crowds. The whole weekend has a great vibe to it. The fans are amazing and it’s a premier stop on the series schedule. Add the fact that it’s Fourth of July weekend; it’s just an epic weekend.”

TALK ABOUT REDBUD AND HOW IT HAS BECOME SUCH AN IMPORTANT RACE ON THE MX SCHEDULE. “I think one of the reasons that RedBud is so good is because of the promoters. They do such a great job putting money back into the track and making improvements every year. It really shows. It’s something that I really appreciate and everyone in the paddock does as well. It’s nice to see that. Not all promoters are putting money back into the tracks and the (Tim and Amy) Ritchies are doing just that.”

YOU’VE GOT RICKY CARMICHAEL UNIVERSITY (RCU) ON WEDNESDAY (7/3) AT REDBUD. WHY IS REDBUD ON THE SCHEDULE? “I’m really excited to have RCU at RedBud on Wednesday. It’s one of my favorite tracks ever. To hold an RCU event at RedBud is very special. It’s sold out. It’s going to be a big hit. It’s a great experience for riders that are participating. The riders can learn a lot about a sport that they love. My instructors have a lot of championships and give back to amateurs as much knowledge as they possibly can. There are seminars going on throughout the day while we’re out coaching the kids and riders. It’s a cool experience.”

TALK ABOUT WHY RCU HAS BECOME SO POPULAR? “I think RCU has become popular because of what people get out of the experience. It’s a full day with a lot of talent giving back to the sport. We make it well worth their while to come participate. We do seminars, provide lunch, on-track coaching, spend time with the riders and give them as much one-on-one time as possible. That’s what it’s all about. A lot of my sponsors help support it. When the RCU participants walk away from the camp, I think they’re left with a ‘Wow!’ factor. It’s a hell of an experience.”

YOUR RCH CO-OWNER CAREY HART WILL BUCKLE UP A PAIR OF RIDING BOOTS THIS WEEKEND AT RCU: “It’s really cool to have Carey (Hart) at RCU at RedBud. I think Carey is going to have a great time. It means a lot to me for him to carve out some time and support what I do. I’m thankful for that. He’s going to have a great time. For him to have a chance to ride RedBud is going to be an awesome experience.”

A TWO-WEEK BREAK ON THE MX SCHEUDLE AFTER REDBUD; IS THIS THE TIME A RIDER NEEDS TO GET OFF THE BIKE AND REST AFTER THE SUPERCROSS AND MOTOCROSS SEASON OR WILL YOU TRAIN MORE DOWN AT THE FARM? “We take the weekend off after RedBud but we’ll still be at the grind the following week. Supercross and Motocross is extremely demanding and you have to put in the practice time. You have to keep your routine sharp and stick with it so that you don’t get stale. Some guys will take the weekend off, maybe three days or so to heal up. For me, I’ll only make it a three-day weekend and then get back at it during the week. You don’t get better sitting on the couch.”
