At Monster Energy Cup 2012, RCH Racing announced the joining forces of Carey Hart’s Dodge/Sycuan Casino Racing team with Ricky Carmichael and factory support from Suzuki and Yoshimura R&D.
The RCH partnership adds the flare and excitement of freestyle pioneer and entrepreneur Hart with the legendary riding resume of Carmichael who has 5 AMA Supercross Championships (48 Wins) and 10 AMA Motocross Championships (102 Wins). Carmichael serves as the team’s co-owner in charge of rider development as well as motorcycle testing, research, and development
RCH Racing will field a two-rider effort featuring Josh Hill from La Center, Wash., and Broc Tickle from Wilmington, N.C. The pair will be aboard factory-supported Suzuki RM-Z450s with Yoshimura research and development serving as the team’s technical partner.
The partnership has leveraged key team changes including a new rider lineup, direct factory support and a key technical alliance for research and development. The long-term agreement with RCH and Suzuki, along with Yoshimura, provides the technical platform and factory-backed expertise necessary in developing a championship caliber program.
