Tomac back in charge as Supercross dazzles Toronto

Mar 062017

Monster Energy AMA Supercross made its sole deviation from the map of the United States last weekend and the Rogers Centre in Toronto, Canada saw more than 49,000 fans soak up round nine of seventeen in the close 2017 chase for the title. Monster Energy Kawasaki athlete Eli Tomac grabbed his team’s first win at the venue since 2013 and his fourth of the present campaign; firing back on principal championship threat Ryan Dungey after the reigning number one had ruled Atlanta the previous weekend.

“Tonight was great,” #3 said. “Obviously this is the result we want and the points we need. I felt really strong in the race, I’d look back here-and-there to see if I needed to pick up the pace or stay consistent and to have that control is a great feeling. The track was, once again, really tough and I’m really happy to come away with the win.”

 


“This is a really good step for me,” AC said. “It was a night where I didn’t necessarily feel my best so I’m happy with the end result. I’ve gone through a lot to get back here so I’m stoked and thankful to be here.”

 

The Monster Energy AMA Supercross will visit the iconic Daytona Raceway will stage round ten of the 2017 trail next weekend.
