Soaring Eagle/Jimmy John’s/RCH Suzuki’s Broc Tickle and AutoTrader.com/Monster Energy/JGR Yamaha’s Weston Peick were involved in a scary crash today in the first 450 moto at the Spring Creek National in Millville, MN. Peick got cross-rutted prior to a jump and went directly into Tickle’s line. Tickle was unable to avoid Peick and both riders went down hard.
Neither rider was able to line up for the second moto, but Tickle’s wife tweeted that he was okay following the crash.
We spotted the ever-tough Peick hanging out at the JGR rig after the race with a small bandage on his hand, and some gnarly road rash on his back. Otherwise he said he was just banged up, and while his hand took a hit, x-rays at the track seem to indicate it's not broken.
We will have more on information on both riders as its known.
