The Monster Energy Yamaha Factory Racing Team has signed Broc Tickle for the 2020 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross season to fill in for Aaron Plessinger who continues to focus on his return to full fitness after a training injury last week.
Plessinger dislocated his wrist while training for the upcoming Outdoor season last Tuesday, July 14, at Fox Raceway in Pala, California. The 2018 250MX Pro Motocross Champion underwent surgery to repair it and quickly began the rehab process, but unfortunately the timeline for recovery could take 12 weeks.
Tickle is eager to make his debut aboard the factory-prepped Yamaha YZ450F at the season opener at Loretta Lynn‰Ûªs Ranch on August 15. The 2011 250SX West Champion brings a lot of experience to the effort and is ready to get rolling with his new team to get some top results in the Outdoor season.
‰ÛÏI‰Ûªm super excited about this opportunity and grateful to be a part of the Monster Energy Yamaha Factory Racing Team for the outdoor season that starts up here in a couple weeks," Tickle said. "For myself, I‰Ûªm just really looking forward to it. It‰Ûªs a great opportunity, and a good group of people around me. We‰Ûªll start off at Loretta‰Ûªs and build from there.‰Û
