Such a cool story, thanks for sharing. Would love to see those big whips you mentioned

I've noticed his flashes of brilliance through the years and I'm looking forward to the rest of the world seeing what he can bring to the table. (Maybe I'll ... more »

True. Seems intentionally "low-key," like they're trying to keep the focus off of one JB replacing another.

Lol, my handle doesn't give me away?

Ok...long story... I've been a fan since his 2011 250SX Lites championship season. Tickle's a smart, serious rider who lets his bike do the talking, and I think he's suffered for his shyness/lack of "charisma" ... more »

Your thoughts are mine exactly, I think changing the "guy behind the guy" mindset is key with Tickle and one of the main reasons I'm optimistic about his future with Aldon/KTM.

Reply to Justin Bogle to JGR - Official PR 9/7/2017 2:51 PM

Sweet! His star is definitely rising in the same way Barcia's seems to have flamed out. Glad to see the RCH guys have confirmed good homes.

Reply to Orange you glad Tickle 9/7/2017 2:46 PM

Awesome! I personally think he's a great fit for the team. He's mature, committed and has all the right raw material. As a longtime BT20 fan, can't wait to see him kicking some ass in 2018!

cool
Reply to Zacho Staying With 16 9/4/2017 12:03 PM

Realistically, he's only got ~5 years, give or take, more in the tank. So he might as well stick with 16. It suits him well and somehow seems cooler than 8 anyhow.

I don't think KTM could have made a better decision myself. Tickle has proved to be an absolutely incredible rider when he has the confidence and motivation. Uninjured, he's got the skill, the fitness, and the speed to run with the best. It's the mental ... more »

Yep. And I'm inclined to think that was the extent of any "plan," to fluster Tomac into riding over his head and screwing up.

Reply to Are American Riders Snowflakes? 8/26/2017 10:25 PM

LOL true. Love this.

Reply to Decoster & Herlings 8/26/2017 10:20 PM

Yeah, my inner conspiracy theorist guessed that Herlings was there for just that reason, to bait Tomac into pushing it and wrecking it. A passive aggressive, mental-games sort of ploy a la Tomacs infamous Vegas SX "bunching" technique.

Reply to Herlings 24-0 8/26/2017 10:11 PM

Yes. American riders could learn a lot from Herlings' technique. If you can't beat them, BE them. Zacho makes it clear how racing guys like Herlings & Roczen in Europe has helped take his riding to the next level.

Seriously.

Charging thru the pack from practically dead last to a win, like JS7 did in 03 at Budds Creek

Reply to Ya think Roger may wanna talk to Herlings? 8/26/2017 2:39 PM

Exactly what I was thinking, this race made me wish KR94 was out there giving him a real challenge!

Reply to Thanks RCH you'll be missed 8/26/2017 2:36 PM

Great team, sad to see it gone. Had two top 10 guys with Tickle & Bogle; at least Bogle gave them a proper send-off last week

For sure...pretty impressive that he was able to come close as he did with any 0's at all. Only one in top 4 to have any.
