FIM confirms details regarding Red Bull KTM racer's situation.
Red Bull KTM’s Broc Tickle has been provisionally suspended from the Federation Internationale de Motocyclisme (FIM) in relation to the FIM Anti-doping Code.
According to the FIM, ‘5-methylhexan-2-amine’ – a specified substance under section six (stimulants) of the 2018 FIM
prohibited list – has been found in a urine sample of Tickle.
The sample was collected at the San Diego round of the 2018 Monster Energy AMA Supercross Championship on 10 February and, as a result of the findings, Tickle is currently barred from competing as of 14 April 2018.
Tickle has the right to request and attend the analysis of his B sample and also may request lifting of his provisional suspension, however under the World Anti-Doping Code and the FIM Anti-Doping Code no further information is able to be provided.
In his first season with Red Bull KTM, Tickle currently sits seventh in the 450SX standings after recording a season-best finish of fourth last weekend in Seattle.
