Monster Energy Star Yamaha Racing’s Eli Tomac came back from a tough start in saturday’s drama filled 450SX Main Event at the Supercross season opener at the Angel Stadium of Anaheim. 

After struggling during the heats and qualifying during this weekends A1 round, Tomac still managed to pull a sixth place finish in the main event on board his YZ450.

“It was a little bit of a slower start than what we wanted this season.’ explained Tomac.


“It really came down to two things tonight, the starts and I was struggling a little bit with the whoops. It was a tough track probably one of the toughest A1’s that we’ve had in quite some time.”

“On a positive note, I had really good qualifying sessions all day, so I know I can be fast and be there. I just have to put it all together. It’s always easier said than done, but it’s possible. We’re going to try and fix the little things and come back next week.”
