Tomac wins at Daytona with authority

In Front Page by admin10 Comments

Eli Tomac joins the ranks of the few that have set foot on the top step of the podium this year with a win at Daytona.  Eli seemed almost comfortable on a track where many riders seemed to struggle.  None could be more of an example of Daytona troubles than James Stewart, who found himself on the ground during the opening lap of his heat race, unable to return to the action that evening.  But back to Tomac – he seemed to dominate the race, crushing the start and heading out to an early lead.  From an outsider perspective, it appeared that the mixed-surface track designed by Ricky Carmichael really suited Tomac’s and possibly only Tomac’s riding style.  Even Dungey looked at odds with the track, conflicting his usually highly-smooth, confident and calculated riding style.  Regardless of circumstance, it was great to see a new rider on the top step of the podium and running competitively with an ever-elusive Dungey.  Can Tomac translate this win to an increased confidence on more traditional Supercross tracks?  Personally, I hope so but nonetheless would love to hear what you think.  Drop some comments below.
