CHINO, Calif – official track release — RCH Racing photo —
RCH Soaring Eagle/Jimmy John’s/Suzuki Factory Racing rider Broc Tickle will return from injury this weekend when the Monster Energy AMA Supercross tour heads to Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, Ind.
Tickle, rider of the No. 20 Suzuki RM-Z450, returns to his traditional position under the RCH canopy Saturday night after a 10-race hiatus while the Holly, Mich., rider recovered from a right forearm injury suffered in a practice crash at the team’s test facility in January.
Tickle will be flanked by fellow RCH stablemates Ken Roczen and Jake Weimer in Indianapolis as the team co-owned by Carey Hart and Ricky Carmichael fields three Suzukis for the first time since the organization was founded.
“I’m really looking forward to getting back to racing this weekend in Indianapolis,” said Tickle. “I’ve been riding for about two weeks and I’m feeling good. I’ve been training and keeping up with my cardio since I got the cast on back in January, just trying to do the right things to stay in as good of shape as I can. It’s taken longer than I expected but sometimes that’s part of it.
“It’s actually been good, in a way, for me. The time off has allowed me to focus on the little things I need to do so I can be where I wanted to be in the beginning of the season. Obviously, the first two races didn’t go the way we were hoping. The field is stacked and you have to bring you’re A Game 100 percent of the time. My goal, after I got hurt, was to work on those little things and to pay attention to what’s working for some of the other guys.”
