Geico Honda’s Eli Tomac lost the SX title by just a few points last year and has put the competitive class on notice that he doesn’t want to feel that sting again. Eli is all about doing work and his raw speed and attacking the track style has not gone unnoticed in the pits. We might have to call him “Rocky” soon, because he definitely has the Eye of the Tiger this year.
No rider is immune to the risk and injury inherent in our sport, but it seems even crueler when it happens in an unfortunate string that keeps a contender out for so long. Geico Honda’s Wil Hahn came out this year ready to make up for an all but lost 2011 only to be tested again by another unrelated injury. Our listeners know we have a special relationship with Lil’ Wil and wanted to make sure he knows we’re always going to support him, even on the dark days.
Shane Gould at Fuel Clothing is a true renaissance man and can be found just about anywhere there is dirt, snow or a vert ramp. Shane has been in trenches building his brand for longer than I can remember and truly inspires the people and athletes around him. We’ve been lucky to know him throughout the years and wanted to catch up with our good friend tonight.
