Team Suzuki Press Office – January 24.
Broc Tickle (RCH/ Yoshimura Suzuki) – 12th
Justin Bogle (RCH/ Yoshimura Suzuki – NC
Weston Peick (Autotrader/ JGR Suzuki) – 5th
It was a tale of two races for RCH/ Yoshimura/ Suzuki Factory Racing on Saturday night when the Monster Energy AMA/ FIM World Supercross Championship returned to Angel Stadium for Round 3.
Broc Tickle, rider of the No #20 Suzuki RM-Z450, faced his share of challenges but the series veteran stayed the course and came away with a season-best 12th-place finish.
“Anaheim was a good weekend,” said Tickle. “We worked on starts quite a bit during the week so I was confident coming into the race. Practice went well and I put in some good times. I finished sixth in my heat, which was decent for where I started. The semi was stacked so I knew I needed to get out front early. I made a couple passes to get up to second so I felt good.
