Eli Tomac, an American motocross racer who began his professional career in 2010, has established himself as one of the best in the sport. Tomac makes a nice living from the dangerous activity he participates in. Tomac’s rising net worth is due in part to his lucrative motorcross wage, as well as product and garment sales.
Professional Achievements of Tomac
Tomac debuted as a professional rider in the AMA Pro Motocross event at the age of 18 and went on to become the first rider to win a professional debut. In 2012 and 2013, the racer won the Supercross and US Motorcross Championships.
As a result, in early 2014, he was promoted to the top 450 class. After that, Tomac won three AMA Supercross races in 2015, as well as two overall wins in the Motorcross Season, before suffering a double shoulder injury. The sports racer then finished his whole season aboard the Kawasaki KX 450F in 2016. With three victories, he finished third in the Motocross season.
Tomac finished the 2017 Monster Energy AMA Supercross season in second place overall, continuing his incredible winning streak of nine races on a straight. In addition, the rider was named AMA Pro Motocross Champion and won his first 450cc Championship the same year while riding for the Kawasaki Team.
With eight main events under his belt, he dominated the Monster Energy AMA Supercross series in 2018. In the last twelve years, the 28-year-old has been the first back-to-back Monster Energy Cup winner in the sport’s history. He earned $1 million in the same year, dubbed “Monster Million,” after winning all three motos. Following his winning streak and triumph in 2018, the champion closed the AMA season strong by placing second overall at the Monster Energy Cup.
A year later, just as the world was ready to implode due to the COVID-19 epidemic, the Kawasaki rider was able to dominate the Monster Energy Supercross standings in 2020. He also won the Monster Energy AMA Supercross 450SX class championship for the first time.
Kawasaki presented their racer with a brand new outfitted Teryx KRX® 1000 side x side after he won the 2020 Monster Energy AMA Supercross. Kawasaki Motors Corp. United States of America also presented Tomac with his 2020 supercross championship ring.
#In terms of net income, a professional rider with more than eight years of experience earns on average $61k a year. Tomac and other top riders might earn up to $12k every race. Furthermore, sponsorship partnerships with energy drinks, bike manufacturers, apparel, and gear businesses pay a significant sum to have their products advertised on a rider’s racing suits and bikes.
Tomac Has His Own Clothing and Merchandise Line
Tomac also makes money by selling his own gear and apparel on his website, which includes helmets, his 450Kawasaki replica bike, sweatshirts, t-shirts, beanies, cap, socks, and a variety of other items. Tomac sells his stuff to over 1 million social media followers, according to his website.
The pro athlete could also profit from the sale of branded clothes developed in conjunction with Kawasaki and introduced in 2018. It includes Tomac’s personal “ET3” brand and a full range of his technical gear.
