Tickle was back under the tent in Colorado, hoping to produce a good finish for the team after taking the weekend off in Florida after his big crash in Millville. He grabbed a solid start in 13th and was moving towards the top 10. He wanted the top-10 in a bad way, making a last-lap pass for 10th. In the second moto, Tickle got off to a great start in fourth going into Turn 2 and was sitting 10th at the end of the first lap. Unfortunately, his hopes of another top 10 finish were quickly derailed with a technical issue, forcing him to retire early.
