2014 Broc Tickle Toronto Crash Update

During practice for Toronto Supercross, RCH Racing Soaring Eagle Suzuki’s Broc Tickle suffered a nasty crash.

During the SX wreck, the 24-year-old injured his T7 vertebra. He was immediately taking to St. Michael’s Hospital in Toronto and underwent surgery by Dr. Howard Ginsberg to repair the broken vertebra.

“Broc’s surgery was successful and we are wishing him a speedy and 100% recovery,” said RCH Racing team co-owner Carey Hart.  “We can’t wait to see him healthy and back racing.”

“I’m extremely bummed about Broc’s misfortune in Toronto,” added co-owner Ricky Carmichael. “The most important thing is his health and taking every step to ensure his comfort and recovery.  All of us couldn’t be more proud of him and how well he’s been riding. We are looking forward to seeing him get a leg over his bike again soon.”

It is unclear when Tickle will return to the Supercross grid. Tickle’s best finish in 2014 was fourth at Daytona SX, which features a track designed by Ricky Carmichael.
