Pro Circuit Riders Head to Monster Energy Cup
CORONA, Calif. (October 14, 2011) – Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki riders Broc Tickle, Josh Hansen and Ben Townley, as well as other Pro Circuit support riders, will be in Las Vegas this weekend for the inaugural Monster Energy Cup at Sam Boyd Stadium on Saturday. Riders will be competing for a quarter-of-a-million dollar purse, and have the opportunity to race for a $1 million bonus if someone can win all three 10-lap main events during the one-of-a-kind event.
Tickle’s anticipated move to a 450cc bike will take place at Monster Energy Cup. The reigning 2011 AMA Supercross Lites West Region Champion just completed a fantastic season, with one win and seven podium finishes. Part way through the year, Tickle achieved the maximum points allowed in the Lites class, but was fortunate to have the support of Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki, who will help him make the move to the premier level for the 2012 season.
