Foothill Ranch, CA (August 10, 2016) – Kawasaki and Eli Tomac
have informed Team USA that they will not participate in the 2016
Motocross of Nations set to be held in Maggiora, Italy on September 25.
“This was not an easy decision to make,” said Eli Tomac. “I have
raced the Motocross of Nations twice now and it has always been an honor
to be chosen for this prestigious event. This year, due to the race
schedule being so full and the commitments I have made for the month of
September, the team and I will not have the time and preparation needed
to compete in a race as big as the Motocross of Nations. Hopefully, I’ll
have a chance to represent the U.S. again in the future. I wish Team
USA 2016 the best as they compete against the world in Italy and look
forward to seeing us back on top of the box where we belong.”
Immediately following the 2016 season, Eli Tomac and the entire
Monster Energy Kawasaki team will focus their collective efforts on
preparing for the forthcoming 2017 Monster Energy Supercross Series.
