Bryan Bosch

IRVINE, CA – October 15, 2015 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – The Monster Energy® Kawasaki racing team looks to continue its championship winning ways with former champions Eli Tomac and Wil Hahn. Tomac, the 2012 250cc Supercross® West Region Champion and 2013 250cc Motocross Champion, continues to be a top competitor in the premier supercross class including winning supercross and motocross races during his first two years in the premier class. Hahn is beginning his third campaign in the premier class after capturing the 2013 250cc Supercross East Region Championship and is poised to collect podium finishes in 2016. Both will compete on the championship proven KX™450F as they look to continue Kawasaki’s winning legacy.

 

 

“The new KX450F provides a great platform to build champions,” said Dan Fahie, Monster Energy Kawasaki Team Manager. “I believe we are poised to have a successful 2016 season with Eli and Wil under our tent. Both riders have proven to be top contenders in the 450 class and they are just as enthusiastic as we are to get back to racing and on top of the box.”

 

Tomac brings with him an impressive resume that includes a 250cc Supercross West Region Championship, a 250cc Motocross Championship, three AMA premier class Supercross race wins, 11 podium finishes, second overall in the 2015 AMA Monster Energy Supercross season and two overall wins, two overall podiums and five moto wins in the 2015 Pro Motocross season. The Monster Energy Kawasaki racing team has been the most dominant supercross and motocross team in the last decade with eight combined AMA titles.

 

“Joining Monster Energy Kawasaki has always been a goal and dream of mine,” said Tomac. “I feel like with a bike and chassis as good as the KX, plus a team totally dedicated to the 450 class, we should be able to do big things in the near future. It’s a new team, new bike and a new year of racing. I can’t wait to get back at it.”

 

With all five riders returning in 2016, the Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki racing team is also looking to reaffirm their position atop the podium. Adam Cianciarulo returns for his third full year after a podium and five top ten finishes in the 2015 Pro Motocross season, along with four-time Arenacross® champion Tyler Bowers for his second full season. Chris Alldredge also returns following an impressive first full season of professional racing with the Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki racing team and will be joined by Arnaud Tonus who turned heads during his U.S. debut last year. Beginning his second year is Joey Savatgy who scored his first professional overall win at the Unadilla motocross round and ended the year third overall in the 250cc Motocross Class standings. The Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki team is one of the winningest supercross and motocross teams with 29 AMA titles.

       Should TT owner(s) and sponsor(s), supply VIP area for it's members for MXON? (Not sure how to add a vote to a topic.)  Maybe if they want gold, have the members pitch in a hundred bucks or so.  Also, require all TT members to have lanyards when in the VIP area at least with screen names.   this should go over well

      I have a 1998 Honda CR250 for sale.
      I just finished rebuilding the whole motor. It’s only been started two times for heat cycles.
      I had the cylinder re-plated by millenium technologies.
      The motor has the following new parts:
      -Hotrods crank
      -vertex std piston
      -crank bearings
      -transmission bearings
      -air filter
      It also has new 
      -grips
      -new radiator shrouds
      The rest of the bike is setup as follows:
      -aftermarket upper clamp
      -IMS pegs
      -pro taper bars
      -excel rims
      -SDG seat
      -FMF fatty pipe 
      -FMF silencer (USFS approved)
      -boyesen dual stage reeds
      -race tech rear spring 180 lbs rider
      If you have questions just ask.
      The bike is nice, but not show room by any means. Reason for not being perfect is that I already have a bike that I built that way and because of what I’m into it, no one is willing to pay for it.
      Thanks for looking.

      I have two Honda CR250 cylinders for sale.
      The cylinders are 1998 models yet they fit 1992-2001 CR250 engines.
      I just got these cylinders back from millenium technologies.  I sent them in to get replated.  
      $400 each shipped to the lower 48 states.  Hawaii and Alaska will be extra.  If you want one or two shipped anywhere outside the USA then you’ll have to arrange shipping.
      If you have questions just ask.

      That second moto you could tell he was pushing harder than he has since the series began he looked like the old Kenny for about 2 laps then he just kind of dropped off
       
      that hand must still be incredibly screwed up anyone else catch when they showed the make a wish footage he had to use his left hand to shake the kids hand?
