To kick off Saturday night’s show, Ricky Carmichael took to the track and explained the layout to the fans while cutting a lap. RC’s Fox V4 lid was mic’d up so that he could explain in real time, rather than a prerecorded voice over.
The official announcement of the reformed Hart & Huntington/Ricky Carmichael race team came Saturday morning. The name is “RCH,” an acronym for Ricky Carmichael and Carey Hart.
The bikes will run full Yoshimura engines and exhausts, as well as factory Showa suspension. They will essentially be the same bike as what James Stewart races under the factory awning.
For now, only Broc Tickle is confirmed to the team and he will race both the Supercross and National tours. The team is currently in talks with Josh Hill and Kyle Chisholm to come on as a Supercross-only rider, and a decision is said to be made this week.
Another look at the Yoshimura exhaust. A full race bike was on display and ready to go, but Tickle’s lack of time on the Suzuki kept them from lining up.
