Eli Tomac Ironman Crash | News

The crash that almost cost Eli Tomac the championship! While going after Jeffrey Herlings in Moto 1 Tomac made a mistake and went down hard.

Luckily for the Monster Energy Kawasaki rider, the bike was still rideable and only suffered a bent clutch lever. However, the crash left the door open for KTM riders Blake Baggett and Marvin Musquin to clinch the title in Moto 2 if either rider were to win and Tomac was to finish outside the top-10.

Tomac would falter in the second moto but the Kawasaki rider managed to finish inside the top 10 and secure the title.
