After a sluggish start to the 2017 season, RCH/ Yoshimura/ Suzuki Factory Racing shifted into a higher gear for Saturday’s Monster Energy AMA/ FIM World Supercross at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.
Broc Tickle, rider of the No. 20 Suzuki RM-Z450, turned in his best performance of the season with a solid sixth-place effort. Tickle’s RCH stablemate Justin Bogle also notched his best overall performance of the year by winning his heat, grabbing the holeshot in the Main Event and bringing home a solid ninth-place finish.
“It was a good night for RCH,” commented RCH team co-owner Ricky Carmichael. “Broc’s been struggling a little bit out of the starting gate and I know he’s working really hard during the week to get that straightened out. It was nice to see him put everything together and come away with a really solid finish. Justin did everything that we expected of him. That’s why we hired him. He won his heat, won the holeshot and if he hadn’t ‘gotten together with someone in the Main, his race had top-five written all over it. It was really nice to see the whole team put it all together. That’s what we’re here for.”
