Eli Tomac, Motocross – GEICO Honda
This year Tomac won the 2013 250 Lucas Oil Motocross Champions after being very vocal early on that he wanted to move up to the 450 class. Just after the half-way point of the season Eli was in second place before he went on an eight race win streak to claim the championship with a whole round remaining. He recently represented red white and blue on Team USA where they took second place. Eli’s speed was incredible at the MXoN as his lap times in his two motos were faster than anyone else’s including the 450′s. Now he sets his sights on the 450 class full-time where he is scheduled to race the Monster Cup this weekend and contest the premier Supercross class going forward for GEICO Honda. To his credit since turning pro; Eli finished runner-up in the AMA Supercross Lites West series as a rookie in 2011. In 2010 at Hangtown, Tomac became the first rider to win the first professional race he entered. He won the 2012 AMA West Regional Supercross title and the 2013 AMA 250 National Motocross Championship.
