Pit Bits 2016 - Hangtown

We spotted Masahiro "Masa" Ito back in the pits with his rider Tomita Toshiki. Masa has worked in the US in the past for Nick Wey, Jason Lawrence, and later Enzo Racing, before returning to Japan to work for the Akira Narita and later the HRC Honda team. His rider, 2016 MX2 All-Japan Champ Toshiki Tomita, is racing his first full season in the US aboard a CRF450R under the Rocky Mountain ATV/MC tent, with some support from HRC USA.

As mentioned above, Tomita is receiving some assistance from Honda HRC USA. This includes a bike and some special parts, such as this titanium fuel tank.

Exhaust system and carbon fiber shroud extenders.

Plus some KYB PSF1 Kit Air Forks. However, we were told that he wasn't receiving help in the engine department.
