2018 Season Recap:

Tomac entered the 2018 season as legitimate title contender, despite earning only one point at the first round and missing the second round. Tomac returned at round 3 in Anaheim showing relentless determination and aggression and captured his first win of the season, followed by another win the next week. The Colorado native won seven of the 17 rounds, more than any other athlete, and finished third overall on the season.


At the 2018 Monster Energy Cup in Las Vegas, Tomac won all three Main Events and took home $1 million to become the first two-time Monster Energy Cup Champion. He looks to return with Kawasaki in 2019 to capture his first 450SX Class Championship.


2019 Season Recap:


Tomac was hot and cold throughout the 2019 Monster Energy Supercross season. The Kawasaki rider took six wins throughout the season - three of those coming within the last four races. This end-of-season success helped him make impressive inroads on Cooper Webb's points lead. Unfortunately for Tomac, his inconsistency during the first half of the season had already done its damage, and he had to settle for the runner-up position again.
