If you are unaware, Eli Tomac is a bad dude on a dirt bike. He literally started his pro career with a win and decided he liked that feeling. He is fourth all time in Supecross wins (tied with Chad Reed) with 44 and will most likely surpass Ricky Carmichael in 2023 who has 48. He’s amassed 32 Pro Motocross wins for third all time, and he’s the all-time leader of wins at the historic Daytona Supercross with six. And don’t forget he’s a two-time 450 Supercross champion and four-time 450 Pro Motocross champion. So yeah, he’s pretty good. He’s currently in Florida doing some testing on the new 2023 Yamaha 450 at Star Yamaha Racing’s facility and looking to make a run at another championship. I called him up to see what he thought of the new bike.
