Tickle Racks Up Another Podium at Unadilla National

 

CORONA, Calif., (August 20, 2012) – Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki's Broc Tickle and Blake Baggett stayed solid at the 10th round of the 2012 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship, which was held at the Unadilla National in New Berlin, N.Y. this past weekend. Tickle had an excellent ride and racked up another podium finish, while Baggett kept it steady and maintained his double-digit points lead in the 250 class.

Tickle Moves Up the Ranks

All the extra work Broc Tickle put in during the week leading up to the Unadilla National paid off in spades, as he had one of the best rides he's had during the 2012 season and earned valuable points in the process. After leading the pack for a bit during the first 450 moto, he nearly claimed the victory, and his first career 450 moto win, by finishing just behind the leader in second. He finished fourth in moto two, which earned him second overall on the day. He is now tied for fourth overall in 450 point standings.

Baggett Keeps it Steady

Baggett rode with the red plate for the ninth consecutive round at the Unadilla National, and was keeping the championship in mind as he focused on having a solid, steady weekend. A 3-5 finish gave him fifth overall, and keeps him leading the 250 class by a solid 24 points. He will ride with the red plate for the 10th consecutive round at the Steel City National in two weeks.

The 2012 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship will take a week off before heading to the 11th round of the series, which will be held at the Steel City National on September 1 in Delmont, Pa.
