You know Eli is feeling it when he post sick videos. 4 time in a row outdoor champion right there (if the series are not cancelled).

They are coming...to express their outrage that Eli is selfish to be riding right now..blah..blah...anyone can be a PhD, but not many can ride like Eli.

He has the most bad ass training grounds of anyone on the circuit, what a place.

It’s his job and he is essential to all the moto heads across this great land. Therefore,

Has anyone been saying anything about these guys on their private tracks? I don’t recall seeing it so I think your making something out of nothing.

Wonder if his WFO style comes from riding at altitude, he always has to be matted...

Nice to see him calm it down and ride within his limits, you know no need to go crazy!

Never try to argue with idiots; they will only bring you down to their level.....and being more experienced, they will beat you at their own game!

You know how you look at a video of yourself and it doesn't look as fast as it felt in your head? Does that happen to him as well? If so, how fast is he going in his head?

Seems comfortable...

They're referring to all of the virtue signaling social justice warriors that believe everyone should be sitting in their house.

laughing The general complaint is people getting hurt riding and having to go to the hospital...nothing to do with private versus public tracks...

There are just some things that you watch and say... DAMN!!!

I was fast... But being fast is relative to who else is on the track with you.

I was scrolling through IG earlier and saw this video of him absolutely hauling the mail. I was like damn, Eli is unreal. Unbelievable talent. Then I scrolled a little more and came across his competition. I was cracking up. Very different personalities, and that’s part of the reason why I love our sport.

His ride first moto at Washougal this last summer was something you can't even explain. I saw Stew and RC battle there, and RV, but my jaw has never been dropped like that ride by Eli.

If I had to pick "one track" to watch Tomac's (others also) raw speed, it would be Washougal.

There's something happening here, what it is ain't exactly clear.

That right there.....is an incredible question , and made me laugh my ass off. Seriously.......does it look mach 5 behind his goggles , or slow motion? I think if I put " My eye's " in Eli's goggles.....I would have shat my pants about 4 times in that clip. And yeah , probably screaming in fear.

And there goes Jeffro. One of God's own prototypes. A super high-powered mutant of some kind never even considered for mass production. Too weird to live, and too rare to die.

Nothing will ever top the year Villo destroyed the entire 250f class all year. We were standing in the old “catchers mitt” corner after the Chuck Sun tabletop, and the racerx guys had their speed gun out. Villo never let off, from landing to the next jump and was about 5mph faster than even the 450 guys. I can’t even explain what it looked like.
