Monster Energy Factory Yamaha’s Broc Tickle says he’s “sore today and feeling banged up” but that he didn’t suffer any injuries in a bad crash on Saturday.
In the second 450 moto at Spring Creek, Tickle appeared to clip his footpegs on the face of the triple step-up and went over the bars and the bike followed, slamming him to the ground.
In a Yamaha press release, Tickle said he’s going to take it day-by-day and see where he’s at for the next round of Lucas Oil Pro Motocross at WW Ranch next Saturday.
“It was a tough day for me from the start. I struggled to get a flow on the track and it was difficult for me to feel comfortable. Millville is normally prepped differently. It was super hard and slick. We had a decent practice, I was 11th overall for qualifying. I knew it was going to be important to get good starts and stay away from people. I didn’t do that. I put myself in bad positions in both motos. I ended up 12th in the first moto and in the second moto, I was coming through the pack and had a moment over a jump and had a big crash. I’m super sore today and feeling banged up. I’m just going to take it day by day and see the progress heading into Jacksonville towards the end of the week to see where I’m at. I’m going to do what I need to do to try to get better and get back at the races.”
