Corona, Calif. (January 12, 2012) – Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki riders Tyla Rattray, Dean Wilson, and Broc Tickle are off to Phoenix, Ariz., for round two of the 2012 Monster Energy AMA Supercross series at Chase Field on January 14, 2012.
Following his podium finish last weekend in Anaheim for the first round of the West Coast Lites Championship, Rattray is hoping to keep the momentum going and is excited to get some work done in Phoenix. "Should be fun racing this weekend," says Rattray. "We got the cobwebs off last Saturday so there should be some good racing in Phoenix."
Wilson, Rattray's teammate on the West Coast, had a tough race at Anaheim. After battling up front with Rattray for the majority of the race, he ended up finishing sixth following a crash in the last lap. "I'm ready to redeem myself after last weekend's race at Anaheim. It's really important that I do well in Phoenix," says Wilson. "I definitely wasn't myself. I've put in a ton of work this week. I'm a bit under the weather, but honestly that just motivates me even more to stay focused and do well. I'll be ready for Phoenix."
Tickle, the first Supercross Class rider in history to pilot a Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki machine, had some ground to make up after an early crash in the Supercross Class Main Event. He got the rookie jitters out of the way, and is now focused on what he's got to work on to make an impact in Phoenix this weekend. "I've been working on starts and other little things on the track," says Tickle. "I got a few things figured out, and now I'm really excited to race at Chase Field Saturday night."
Monster Energy AMA Supercross makes its way to Chase Field in Phoenix, Ariz., this Saturday, January 14th. Good luck boys!
