Unfortunately, Broc Tickle sustained a back injury at the Toronto SX on Saturday. However, according to a statement that the RCH Suzuki team posted on their instagram, it looks like he will make a full recovery, thankfully. The full statement is below. Get well soon, Broc, from everyone at MX Vice!
“Broc Tickle suffered an accident while in practice this past weekend in Toronto, injuring his T7 vertebrae. Broc has been under the amazing care of St. Michael’s Hospital where Dr. Howard Ginsberg performed surgery to repair Broc’s T7. “Broc’s surgery was successful and we are wishing him a speedy and 100% recovery. We can’t wait to see him healthy and back racing,” said team co-owner Carey Hart. “I’m extremely bummed about Broc’s misfortune in Toronto. The most important thing is his health and taking every step to insure his comfort and recovery. We all 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,” stated co-owner Ricky Carmichael. On behalf of the entire RCH Racing team, we would like to thank the doctors and nurses on site, during transport, and upon arrival at St. Michaels for their quick response and undivided attention and care for Broc. We would also like to sincerely thank the fans and the industry for their thoughts and prayers.“
