Eli Tomac Speaks Out On Motocross of Nations

GEICO Honda’s Eli Tomac, Team USA #8, on 2013 MXoN:

“I didn’t get a good start in the first moto, as I spun off the line and I think my dirt was a little dry; I thought it was going to work, but it didn’t. I went through the pack a little bit, and was in third place at one point, before I made a really big mistake that sent me flying over the bars.

“I was flying through the air without my motorcycle, which was a little scary, but I was lucky to get up, be healthy, get back to the bike and finish it out. In the second moto, I had a big battle with Roczen. He got the start, and to me whoever got the start was going to win, because we were so close with a big battle all the way through. I did get shuffled back a few times with lappers, which was what hurt me the most, and the fans were really behind him, but he rode a great race. It’s been a really cool experience, and although we are disappointed not to win, hopefully I can come back and we know we’ve got to put together all five motos for the result.”

Getting up from a spectacular crash in the first moto while battling rival Ken Roczen for second place, Tomac fought back to 16th place. This would be the “throwaway” result for the United States. Tomac redeemed himself with a strong 2nd place to Roczen in the final moto, challenging for the lead all the way to the checkered flag. Tomac earned the only podium finish on the day from Team USA, though the United States finished 2nd overall.
