Monster Energy/Star/Yamaha Racing is pleased to announce the addition of Eli Tomac to the team for the 2022 AMA Supercross and Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship. The multi-time champion completes a powerhouse lineup, joining newly crowned 2021 Pro Motocross 450 Class Champion Dylan Ferrandis. After campaigning for a Supercross title in the 250SX Class, Christian Craig will join the duo for the outdoor season aboard the Yamaha YZ450F.

Tomac brings with him a wealth of experience and is a proven championship contender. In addition to his three consecutive Pro Motocross 450 Class titles from 2017-2019, he added the coveted 450SX Championship to his resume in 2020. The Coloradan has amassed an impressive number of victories and is the winningest rider currently active in both premier class championships.
