Suzuki Returns to Racing for Final Seven Supercross Rounds

June 1, 2020

JGRMX/Yoshimura/Suzuki Racing Adapts to the Utah-Based Season Conclusion

Broc Tickle (#20) returns to the Rice-Eccles Stadium for round 11 on his Suzuki RM-Z450.
Brea, CA (June 1, 2020) - The JGRMX/Yoshimura/Suzuki Racing team is stationed outside Rice-Eccles 
Stadium in Salt Lake City, Utah for a three-week, seven-round stand to complete the interrupted 2020 Monster Energy Supercross season. Broc Tickle and Fredrik Noren were healed up after earlier setbacks and eager to get back into action on their JGR-tuned Suzuki RM-Z450’s but unexpected injuries ended the night early.
“Fast Freddie” was ready to kick-off the first round in Utah after recovering from an injury he suffered early in the season. Unfortunately, a small error caused him a sprained ankle during his heat race. Although he displayed great performance and pushed through the pain, Noren was forced to retire from the main event. Noren is looking forward to the next round and proving he has what it takes to be a top contender.
"It was awesome to be back at the races again, and I’m so thankful for the whole JGR crew,” said Noren. 
“Unfortunately, I tweaked my ankle and it was hurting pretty bad, so I decided to pull off. With some rest and ice, I should be good to go for Wednesday’s race."
Tickle was healthy and ready to put in strong rides for the final seven rounds, but a small mistake in practice 
caused him another hand injury that put him out for at least one week. Tickle is determined to rest up and return for next Sunday’s race.  
"I was really happy to be back at the races,” said Tickle. “I made it through three-quarters of the first practice and started putting the track together before I crashed. The bike flipped on top of me and it made contact with my right hand. I learned that I have a fracture in my right pinky metacarpal. I am bummed but I'm going to get some therapy and rest to get ready for next Sunday."
JGRMX Team Manager Jeremy Albrecht added, "I’m excited to be back racing. It’s not the day we wanted or 
expected. Both Freddie and Broc will be getting treatment tomorrow morning so they can get the results we came for. They will be back soon."
The 2020 Supercross series will complete its full 17-round season over the next three weeks. Race times will vary but rounds will take place every Sunday and Wednesday until June 21st, with the 250 West rounds taking place on June 10th and 14th, and the East/West Showdown final on June 21st.
The JGRMX/Yoshimura/Suzuki Racing team is ready for the new challenges that the schedule, track conditions, and the COVID-19 restrictions impart, and is eager to finish the year with great results.
