Round 7 of the Monster Energy Supercross Series headed to the "Sunshine State" in Tampa Florida. There was lots of excitement around the Tampa round this year with it being the first round of East Coast 250's and the return of Broc Tickle. Tickle had been out for almost 2 years from competing professionally and was set for the main stage in Florida. The day was filled with tons of energy around Broc; lots of media, tons of pictures, and an abundance of TV time on the broadcast. Tampa Supercross was the host of the "This Race Saves Lives" event put on for the St. Jude’s. Broc Tickle and Kyle Chisholm wore special St. Jude’s FXR gear for the occasion and it was the talk of the pits throughout the weekend on how good it looked. Tickle went on to capture an impressive 12th place in the 450 main event. That was an incredible task with the stacked field this year and jumping in at round 7. Also in the 450 Class Kyle Chisholm finished a respectable 17th. In the 250 class the surprise of the night was the Club MX rider of Joey Crown. Joey was fast all day and kept that momentum going into the main event where he finished 8th place! FXR also had Jerry Robin in 16th, Enzo Lopes in 19th, and Justin Starling in 20th.
Round 8 of the series heads to AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas on February 22, 2020. Be on the lookout for something special from FXR as we will have an LE drop this weekend in the Lone Star State!
