Exhaust #21: Broc Tickle

When Broc Tickle was provisionally suspended by the FIM for a failed anti-doping test under the WADA code, it rekindled all the complex conversations about drug testing in this sport. Fallout and finger-pointing came quickly, and even though many fans and industry sponsors pledged support for Tickle, he’s still suspended for an indefinite matter of time, and he still lost his ride with Red Bull KTM. (Aldon Baker was Tickle’s trainer at the time of the failed test, so his name often gets pulled into the fracas as well.) In June, we phoned Tickle to get his side of the story while researching a feature on the topic for the latest issue of Racer X Illustrated. That story—”Lights Out”—can be read in our September issue, out now. For this episode of the Racer X Exhaust podcast, we present the full interview with Tickle.

The Racer X Exhaust Podcast is presented by Yoshimura.

  • There is transparency by the FIM or any of these governing bodies, it’s why until transparent I will always support the athlete over the body first, if they are legit if they really professional(chokes) then this is how they would act, it would be fast, clear and indisputable, it’s not these guys have had years and years to have this process sorted out they don’t, it’s a sham as far as I am concerned. I hope Tickle takes them for all losses to income and potential future losses in career. These guys just make up rules to suit they’re own agenda, it’s not worth the paper you wipe your arse with, but it’s there game they’re rules, how they actually are legal with employment law to me seems like a massive opportunity to take tans sue them for thousands of not more.
