I think he wants off the team and putting in bad rides on purpose. That was embarrassing for him that first race to just let people by like that. No fight at all. Like doesn’t even care. Don’t remember seeing anything like this from a top rider.

He had the speed. He was pressuring webb. And then just literally dropped anchor. Again.

Can't imagine he has the mentality to just give up to get off the team, but guess anything is possible

|

Do we know for a fact that He wasn't having a Mechanical issue or something Physical ?

I agree something is wrong, but lets not just throw him under the bus without real info.

Goes to Honda with Kenny. Stamp it. Jk I wish that would be awesome

Is it a big conspiracy, or just burn out?

Good point. I was just about to say that. The rest of the night will be telling for me to see if was a bike issue first moto.

Purposely throwing it doesn't make sense and would be dumb since there is bonus money and wins to race for. It would probably also hurt him in negotiations for a contract renewal or contract with a new team.

Looks like he’s handing points to KTM.

Literally no fight in him. Looks to have mailed it in for the season.

Good point, but where are we going to get that info from? You really think the TV crew or any of the "journalist" are going to ask Eli what's up?

Illness? Epstein barr? It looks like he's draining a lot quicker than the normal Tomac we see. There's no way his bike is creating this big of a difference. Think about SLC 2017... That's the Eli we know, not this. This has to be an illness, not mental or bike-related.

Well Tomac got a shit start second moto. Almost last.

No offense to Yamaha, but I think that would be the worst option for Tomac right now.

There's something going on at Kawasaki. Williamson quit suddenly to spend more time with his family. That's corporate code for we're not going to tell you the real reasons. Tomac riding motivated when he feels like it and circulating when he doesn't. you and I will never know the real reason. But there is definitely some unhappiness going on.

|

Tomac has grown weary of the SX/MX lifestyle. He's a talented rider who would rather spend his time doing something else. He lacks the hatred of losing, which is a prime mover with many champions across a vroeity of competitive endeavors. His near decade-long tenure on the circuit has simply exhausted him mentally and physically. Complexity understandable.

He could be signed somewhere else already and not giving a shit

HRC can't afford both Tomac and KR94
And KR's contract gives him refusal of teammate

Keep riding like he has and his ability to demand a high salary may be going away

You think Plessinger is safe on Factory Team Yamaha? hmm not sure about that

So if he is slowing because he wants to off the team, what team would want someone with that lack of character? Better for him to win the title to get more money and make Kwai wish he’d stayed.

As much as I like Barica I’d like to see Eli replace him on Yamaha. Highly doubt it would happen

Someone should've told you that you cant just be "fired" from a team just because you're not performing. You wont get a contract offer once it expires... but you can't be fired... thats why its called a CONTRACT.
