Eli Tomac and Wil Hahn have been hitting it hard both on the test track and in the gym in anticipation of the upcoming 2016 Monster Energy Supercross season.
With the month of January quickly approaching, the most crucial time of the offseason is right around the corner before the first gate drops in Anaheim on January 9.
Tomac, the newest member of Monster Energy Kawasaki, continues to acclimate to his new surroundings and his KX‰ã¢450F, with a focus on becoming a fixture atop the podium in the 450SX Class.
‰ÛÏI rode my new KX450F for two and a half weeks on the motocross track in Colorado right after the Monster Energy Cup." Tomac explained. "Then the team came out [to Colorado] and that‰Ûªs when we started riding supercross on the race bike.
‰ÛÏBy that time I felt that I was comfortable enough on the Kawasaki to begin riding supercross.
"The new KX450F is incredible, to say the least. It amazed me how fast the stock bike is. The testing out in Colorado was all positive, and we had a brand new supercross track to test on, which was awesome. We left there on a really good note and now I‰Ûªm out in California all the way through the West Coast rounds of supercross.
"My relationship with my new team is really good, and the more time we spend together testing and riding the bike, the better it gets.‰Û
