Tomac on Southwick: Tougher than I anticipated!
Eli Tomac came in as favourite to Southwick but things didn’t go quite to plan with the American not quite managing to get the win he craved.
However, 2-3 was still good enough for third overall with Tomac admitting that it wasn’t quite the result he was expecting.
“Today ended up being a little tougher than I anticipated,” explained Tomac. “The heat combined with the tough demands of a sand track and constantly being pelted with sand and rocks wore me out. I’m happy to be leaving with another podium finish and the points lead. Now that we’re heading into the second half of the season, I’m going to remain focused on this championship and keep striving for those overall wins.”
But with Ken Roczen struggling, Tomac has still stretched his points lead from six to a 26 points lead in the championship ahead of new second place man Marvin Musquin.
