Today at the AIMExpo in Florida, Monster Energy Kawasaki announced what we've all been expecting: Eli Tomac has moved over from GEICO Honda and will join Wil Hahn on the team in 2016.
Tomac is currently recovering from double shoulder surgery following a crash at the Thunder Valley National that ended his season. After winning the first five motos, and en route to a sixth, Tomac crashed violently at the Colorado circuit, sustaining a dislocated right shoulder and a torn rotator cuff in his left. He is expected to be ready for the Monster Energy Supercross opener in January.
Hahn, who missed most of 2015 due to injuries, returns for a second season with the team. He will be the team’s only rider at this weekend’s Monster Energy Cup.
