RCH/Yoshimura/Suzuki Factory Racing has announced Broc Tickle will miss the rest of the 2017 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross season.

Tickle suffered a shoulder injury last weekend at RedBud, suffering multiple injuries that will sidelined him for the second half of the series.

“It’s a tough situation and ended up being more damage to Broc’s shoulder than what anyone originally thought,” explained RCH team manager Kyle Bentley.

“It really speaks volumes about how tough Broc is, the way he gutted it out last weekend. It’s a shame because he was having a really solid season but we all know that injuries are part of the sport and everyone deals with it from time to time.”

A 17th place overall last weekend at RedBud saw Tickle drop to seventh in the championship standings, with the team opting to field a single-rider of Justin Bogle at Southwick.
