Broc came into RedBud this weekend with a big smile on his face after last week’s 3rd overall podium at Muddy Creek. Beam Designs came up with a pretty cool July 4th Abe Lincoln helmet for Broc to wear at Redbud. The Holly, MI native always looks forward to the RedBud week as it’s his favorite track on the circuit. Broc said that he loves the way the RedBud track gets roughed up and makes for a more technical track.Photo By Rob Koy

The RedBud crew did another fantastic job on the track prep this year, as the track had moisture in it throughout the whole day. That means the first timed practice would be a little wet. Broc was able to turn his fastest timed lap on lap two with a time of 1:56.968, which gave him the second fastest time in the first session.Photo By Rob Koy

Broc got of to a decent start in moto one and was in 5th place after lap one. Broc was able to move into fourth place by lap two and held it to the finish of moto one. Broc said that he learned that you need to be light in the berms and carry your momentum around the deep soft soil at RedBud. Broc said that riding press day on Thursday helped him a lot by finding the right lines that would work the best on raceday. Here Broc carries his momentum through the new section going into turn one that was added this year to keep the racing off the start straight.Photos By Rob Koy

Broc comes up the hill after the sweeping off camber to the tight left hander before going down another hill filled with massive braking bumps the whole way down. The ruts got big by the end of moto one. Broc takes the middle rut while most of the riders were going to the inside and hugging the banners around the turn. Broc said that this track is all about momentum and if you go blasting into a tight berm you would loose that momentum which means time.Photos By Rob Koy

Broc carries his momentum to the outside rut as he sets himself up to go into that deep rut on the outside. By the end of moto two you can see the foot peg marks as they dragged going through this rut. Broc kept to the outside as other riders would try a middle to inside line and risk the chance of getting cross rutted off the face.Photos By Rob Koy

By the end of the moto this section before the finish line got some huge ruts. Broc took the middle line as most of the other riders were going to the far left on the edge of the track to avoid the deeper ruts. Broc got into 3rd place by the 4th lap and was able to hold it to the end of the moto. Broc commented that he had to go above the pace he wanted to in the middle of the moto because Justin Barcia did make a charge to catch Broc. Broc said that he just wanted it more and he knew if he put in a couple fast laps that Justin would not be able to catch him.Photos By Rob Koy

Broc Tickle went 4-3 for 4th overall at RedBud. Broc is in a good place right now, he knows that he and Ken Roczen have a great bike and everything is starting to click for him. He commented that he was not ready at the first few races coming back from injury and that it took until the east coast swing for him to start feeling better on the bike. Broc hopes to continue this momentum the rest of the season.Photos By Rob Koy
