2017 Season Recap:

Tomac entered the 2017 season poised to play the role of spoiler for both of his main counterparts, Ryan Dungey and Ken Roczen. His relentless determination and aggression made him a legitimate title contender, despite missing the podium at the first three rounds. Tomac went on to win 9 rounds, including a 5-race win streak, and ended up second overall, five points behind the champion.

 

 

2018 Season Recap:

Tomac scored the most 450SX Main Event victories for the second season in a row with 8. In what looked to be like "The Year" for Tomac, he was leading the season opener at Anaheim when he crashed and injured his shoulder. Unable to score points at Round 2 in Houston, Tomac went on a charge throughout the middle portion of the championship leading the bulk of laps and adding to his impressive career win total. Inconsistency would be his undoing for the title, but he left an impression that he should be the main to beat in 2019.
