Monster Energy Star Yamaha Racing officials have announced the addition of Eli Tomac to the team for the upcoming Monster Energy AMA Supercross and Lucas Oil Pro Motocross seasons.
The multi-time champion completes a powerhouse line-up, joining the newly crowned 2021 Pro Motocross champion Dylan Ferrandis. After campaigning for a Supercross title in the 250 class, Christian Craig will join the duo for the outdoor season aboard the Yamaha YZ450F.
“I’m really excited about this next chapter of my racing career with the Monster Energy Star Yamaha Racing team,” Tomac said. “With the recent success of the team, motorcycle, and crew members in place, I know we will be ready for the challenge of winning races. January can’t come soon enough.”
Tomac brings with him a wealth of experience and is a proven championship contender. In addition to his three consecutive Pro Motocross 450MX titles from 2017-2019, he added the coveted 450SX championship to his resume in 2020. Tomac has amassed an impressive number of victories and is the winningest rider currently active in both premier class championships.
“We’re really happy to have Eli on board next season,” said Team Manager Jeremy Coker. “He is a proven championship contender and an incredible athlete. Together with Dylan and then Christian joining us for the outdoor season, we have a great line-up and look to be fighting up front for the number-one plate in both championships. This year was a great first year in the premier class for the team and an absolutely incredible Pro Motocross season. We look to build on that and are really excited for the 2022 season.”
