Last year after Muddy Creek Rd 5, Tomac had 191 total points.
This year he has 242 total points leaving Rd 5.
Certainly impressive.

He was pretty unreal at Muddy Creek... Just methodical and then turned the tap on... and then turned it off. I think Eli has grown up now, will be hard to beat the next few years.

Pretty easy to tell which year is which below. Yes, Eli's 51 pts. better, good on him, but it helps there's a few riders missing or battling injury and he hasn't had any mechanical issues with the bike. Not throwing shade!! The rider that takes the cake for biggest improvement is Kenny...169 pts better than himself last year. cool

I see your point completely. I think the top 5 in points this year, so far, is faster then the top 5 last year if you look at the names. Yes there are faster names from 5-10 last year but I don't see those guys having much for Eli last year or this year besides the two rides by Bogle last year. Anderson is the only serious threat to Eli who's gotten hurt so far this year IMO, and having Kenny back takes that slot from last year to this year competition wise.

Got to be in it, to win it. Eli's taking care of business...even with a LaRocco-esque start every now and then. silly

Let's hope he can carry that into SX as well. He will need it with KR, MM and of course JA all chomping at the bit come A1.

Wasn't a mechanical DNF or bad result part of the lower points in the prior year?

Yes he had the front brake problem in moto 2 at Glen Helen in 2017. That resulted in the 19th place and only 2 points above. But he also had rough motos at Lakewood and High Point in there too.

Old MXer turned Superfan.

I like that Anderson has missed 60% of the season so far but is still top 10 in points.

Wow, didn't realise Marv was in a bigger hole last year at this point.

James = #7. Malcolm = #27

Stewart return confirmed!

It is pretty disappointing to see the lack of disparity the 450 field relative to the 250s. I don't like handicapping the top guys to help elevate the slower guys, but in the name of entertainment, it sure seems like 450 is more power than 80% of the pros can handle even. It's been this way year over year.

Good battles in the 450 class are not common.

The 450 class isn’t allowed to dope because they get tested!

Lack of disparity.

Lack of parity.
