Broc Tickle suffered an injury to his back at the Toronto Supercross

RCH Racing Soaring Eagle’s Broc Tickle underwent surgery on his back following a crash that he suffered while practicing at the Rogers Centre for the Toronto Supercross, March 23.

According to the team, Tickle injured the T7 vertebra in his back and has, ever since, been in the care of St. Michael’s Hospital, where Dr. Howard Ginsberg performed surgery.

“Broc’s surgery was successful and we are wishing him a speedy and 100% recovery,” said 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. 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,” added co-owner Ricky Carmichael.

The RCH Racing Team said that it wanted to give a big “thank you” to “…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.”
