Re: Monster Energy Cup

Thoughts on letting your team mate pass on the last turn for the win?

What's funny is that when marvin let dungey by in 2016 Kawasaki threw a fit.
If I'm tomac I would have been telling Joey "move and I'll pay you 10k"

Re: Monster Energy Cup

Seems like a rather empty win.
It was so obvious.

Throwing a win away (in any sport) isn't very sportsmanlike.

Or just a wise move not to force Eli to make the pass that was coming no matter what on that next straight. Not a bad plan to make friends with the team and teammate at your first event with them

He only has a one year deal so he needs to make Kawasaki happy. They are paying him to get in the top ten. They spend millions a year on tomac to win races. Tomac would have made the pass and Joey would have had a bad time pitting next to him all year

I hate seeing it, this is the 3rd time in the last 4 years that a rider pulled over for a teammate for a major win.


In tomacs defense, there was no where to pass on that track.

He passed a few to get to the guy's rear wheel.
It was exciting to watch and then a big let down at the end.

He did. But he had to work for every pass.
In post race interviews http://pulpmx.com/podcast/2018-mec-p...ce-interviews/ the riders were complaining about it being hard to pass.

Re: Monster Energy Cup

When I was racing cars wheel to wheel, MSR-Houston was also a hard place to pass.

During a driver's meeting a couple of the racers were complaining about it and I'll never forget one of the racer's wives yelled out ...

"It's racing, not grocery shopping, Mary Poppins."

Yes Kawasaki won but Tomac way more a factor than the green machine. Right now he's the cream of the drop. He'd win on any of the brands.
