Monster Energy Yamaha Star Racing’s Eli Tomac to focus on returning to full fitness for the later half of the 2024 Pro Motocross season.

Monster Energy Yamaha Star Racing’s Eli Tomac will sit out this weekend’s Monster Energy AMA Supercross season finale in Salt Lake City, Utah, and the opening rounds of the 2024 Pro Motocross season to focus on returning to full fitness.

The multi-time champion injured his thumb in a crash during free practice at last weekend’s penultimate round in Denver, Colorado, and will undergo surgery to repair a Bennett Fracture and torn ligaments, with an estimated timeline of six to eight weeks for his return.

Jeremy Coker – Monster Energy Yamaha Star Racing 450 Team Manager: “It’s unfortunate to have Eli sit out this weekend and the opening rounds of the outdoor season, but our main focus is to have him back healthy. It’s just part of racing. We look forward to having him back to 100% and battling up front.”
