another title for dungey ....

CORONA. Calif. (June 2) -- Superstar motocross rider Eli Tomac will miss the rest of the outdoor season following a hard crash Saturday at the Thunder Valley National in Denver that injured both of his shoulders. The GEICO Honda rider had won the first five 450cc class motos of the season and was leading the second race in Denver when he went down on his own in a difficult section of the track.

"Eli was understandably upset when we were talking a little while ago," team co-owner Jeff Majkrzak said. "Obviously, after the start he's had, we were all hoping for a championship run. Injuries are an unfortunate part of this sport, and this one is very tough for all of us."

Majkrzak reports that Tomac's left shoulder has suffered a 100 percent tear of the rotator cuff, requiring immediate surgery. His right shoulder, which was dislocated in the crash and later put back into place by the Asterisk medical team, will most likely need surgery as well.

To date, Tomac has won two championships, the Supercross 250cc West title in 2012 and the 250cc Motocross title in 2013. He has also been runner-up to three championships, the 2011 and 2013 Supercross 250cc West titles and the 2015 450cc Supercross title.

He has also collected 12 overall MX trophies on a 250 and three more on a 450. In Supercross, Tomac has won 11 races on a 250 and three more on a 450.

yeah I'm sure the other 38 riders on the gate are just going to give up. There is no way that KR94 or JB51 could ever catch RD5. Mechanical breakdowns, lappers, tracks, setups....none of that can effect RD5. Quit acting like the series is over after 3 rounds.

It's so sad to see a guy that was on that highest of levels to go out right now. The way he was riding was one of the best I've ever seen in history !

Just disgusted, not for the Diesel, for the Moto Gods that keep killing these promising seasons.

Too much confidence for ET and it bit him in the ass. Same with Villo, "This bike won't loop out....... Cocsyx" :D

It's Rd's title to lose now, up to Roczen to apply the pressure.

Yup. IMO he was riding faster than RV in 13. Hangtown was RC like.
