Monster Energy Supercross Lites Class Champion Broc Tickle Awaits Supercross Class Debut

Posted:

As the clock winds down to the start of the 2012 Monster Energy AMA Supercross, an FIM World Championship, Monster Energy/Pro Circuit Kawasaki's Broc Tickle will make his debut in the Supercross Class, following an impressive five-year run in the Lites Class, where he earned a Western Regional Lites Class championship.

Tickle will line up against the world's top racers at the season opener on January 7 at Anaheim's Angel Stadium.

Throughout Tickle's 2011 championship campaign, he topped the standings with one win and seven podium finishes. Tickle's triumphant season earned the Monster Energy/Pro Circuit Kawasaki racing squad, the most dominant team in supercross history, their 18th Supercross Lites Class championship. The year prior, Tickle won his career-first Lites Class race and has to his credit two wins, nine top-three and five top-10 finishes.

"I think it's a blessing in disguise that I got bumped up to the Supercross Class," said Tickle. "I'm excited to race with the top guys who have been around for a while. My main goal is to be consistent and run up front."

Tickle made his first appearance racing on a 450cc bike earlier this year at the Monster Energy Cup alongside supercross' top guns. With this valuable experience under his belt, Tickle is anxious to run a full season on a bigger bike going head-to-head with the world's best supercross riders.

"Riding the 450 suits my style better," explained Tickle. "Before I was a bigger guy on a Lites Class bike, and I feel the KX450F is really where I need it to be. I've been training on the KX450F for a while now and am feeling pretty comfortable. Overall, I'm really happy with the bike. I'm pretty thankful to be with Kawasaki and Pro Circuit. I'm happy they gave me the opportunity to stay with the team and transition to the 450."
